the NBA is setting a new standard for blatant abuse of its own rules to get the matchups it wants in the conference finals. Tonight DeRozan got ejected for contesting a Jordan Clarkson lay up and hitting Clarkson in the head. If you saw the play, at least DeRozan made some semblance of an attempt to make a play on the ball. PJ Tucker, however, can slap Joe square in the face and it’s only a flagrant one? I have been an NBA fan since the early 80’s. I don’t remember it ever being this obvious. Well, other than Jordan’s push off of BRuss.
