It seems that high school refs are as sensitive as NBA refs.
NBA refs will give you a technical just for looking at them the wrong way. This high school ref took to the extreme because he threw a 7-time NBA champion out of the game for saying he sucked.
He must not be a great ref if he is just handing out fouls in a high school basketball like candy.
It doesn’t look like the other parents disagreed with Horry’s actions. Here is how it went down via TMZ Sports.
7x NBA champ Robert Horry was ejected from his son’s basketball game Friday night for screaming “you suck” at the referees, and TMZ Sports has video of the incident.
52-year-old Horry’s son Christian is a junior at Harvard Westlake, one of the top private schools in L.A., where he is a star guard. Harvard-Westlake was playing St. Francis in Flintridge, CA Friday night.
During the 3rd quarter, Christian picked up his 4th foul, according to spectator James Escarcega, and “Big Shot Bob” wasn’t exactly pleased with the call … so he began yelling at the refs.
The video starts with Horry, mid-sentence, screaming “You suck!” while standing in the bleachers. It’s not seen on the video, but this is when the ref points at Robert, and tosses him out of the game.
But, Horry didn’t stop, continuing, “Hey ref, you talking about me? You suck! Oh, you’re mad at me because I said you suck?”
A few seconds later, someone came over to corral RH, and they began walking towards the gym exit.
Horry briefly stopped to talk to the HW coach. The guys quickly put an arm around each other, and Robert continued on.
Do you think Horry was right or wrong?
