Kyrie Irving & Dennis Schroder Both Ejected Following Tense Exchange


Recommended Posts

Both Kyrie Irving and Dennis Schroder were ejected during the Los Angeles Lakers' 126-101 rout over the Brooklyn Nets, Saturday night. The two point guards came to blows with 9 minutes, 41 seconds remaining in the third quarter when they exchanged tense words following a foul call on Irving.

After the heated moment, the refs gave out a double technical. When the pair continued to fire off insults at each other, they were both issued second technical fouls, resulting in automatic ejections.

"I think it was unnecessary," Schroder said after the game. "It's just unfortunate that I left my team out there by their self. And I mean, I don't even know what I did; but I got kicked out, and I apologize for that just to my teammates."

The pool report following the game explained the ejection decision saying, “When Irving couldn’t stop yelling at Schroder, he was then assessed his second technical foul and ejected.”

For Schroder, it was waving goodbye to Irving that earned him the final technical. The refs described the move as a taunt.

The Lakers were able to win without Schroder as well as their stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, who are both out with injury.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
