Robin Lopez must have really hated that chair.
The Bulls center was frustrated with the officials through the entire first half Monday night against Sacramento and had been working up to a fever pitch for a while yelling at them. When Lopez was called for contact with Willie Cauley-Stein trying to deny a pass, he lost it. And I mean LOST IT. It was like the official told him “Star Wars” was overrated.
Lopez earned his ejection, then took his frustrations out on an innocent chair in the hallway.
That is the definition of “not leaving the court in a timely manner.”
Lopez will find his next paycheck a little light, as there will be some fine money taken out by the NBA.
