With less than two months until NBA 2K18 releases, video game publisher 2K Sports has revealed the first screenshots of this year’s edition, which feature Paul George with his new team, Canadian cover athlete DeMar DeRozan, and Celtics star Isaiah Thomas.
Ball, who is the coach of the Big Baller Brand team that his son LaMelo is on, was given a technical by the woman. He then said he and his team would leave the court and the game if a new referee wasn’t put in.
A male referee replaced the woman, but Ball was issued another technical and ejected from the game.
The game was scrapped after Ball refused to leave the court, and afterward he said the female referee needed to stay in her lane because she ain’t ready for this.
Court Club Elite, which supplied the officials for the tournament, was appalled and announced that it had ended it’s contract with Adidas for its treatment of CCE’s employees.
On Monday, Ball refused to acknowledge his sexism and said he was targeted by the referees because of who he is.
Of course I’m being unfairly targeted, but it’s OK. Why wouldn’t I be? Ball told ESPN LA 710. They say I got a big mouth anyway. They say we bad as heck. Of course you want to try to quiet me up. That’s the way I’ve been coaching all the time. It’s just entertainment. Instead of going to the movies, people are coming to the AAU game to watch a game.
