Lakers coach Phil Jackson
"It's another one of those interpretive things that makes it very difficult to call," Jackson said [at] a Lakers' exhibition game.
"We had a situation ... at the end of the game against Utah where consecutive fouls were calledagainst [Lakers rookie] Devin Ebanks, and both of them were suspicious calls. He got upset, threw his hands up as a gesture [of protest] and got a technical."
The technical came with 45 seconds left at Staples Center, and the free throws put the game out of reach of the Lakers in a 99-94 loss.
It was only an exhibition game, but Jackson said, "You don't want to see something like that change the course of a game."
Is the NBA overreacting?
It's been happening in exhibition games around the league. So you have to wonder if the NBA is overdoing it. Are NBA games destined to become stop-and-start whistle-fests?
What's next? Is Lakers guard Derek Fisher going to be called for a technical for smiling after a questionable call, as he likes to do?
Fisher tiptoed around the subject, [which was] not surprising considering he is president of the NBA Players Association executive committee.
What he would say is he thinks there should be more discussion between players and owners about the new policy on technical fouls.
"The fans deserve to see the game played a certain way," he said carefully. "For the best basketball to be played, there should be a way we can be ourselves on the court."
And be allowed to show emotion?
He nodded. Then Fisher mentioned that Billy Hunter, director of the NBAPA, had released a statement decrying the "new unilateral rule changes as unnecessary and unwarranted overreaction" by the league and that there would be an "appropriate legal challenge."
Stay tuned for the next whistle.
类似情况在联盟的各场表演赛中不断发生， 使人不得不怀疑NBA是否做得太超过了。 NBA球赛真的非得打得断断续续、口哨声四起不可吗？
