Kind of like how every single one of us knows what to expect when a player intentionally slaps a backboard during a try so forcefully that it cannot be ignored because it's an attempt to draw attention to the player, or a means of venting frustration; and then the ball falls off the ring and doesn't enter the basket as the backboard is still vibrating.

Even after we charge the technical foul, we all are prepared for the fact that it won't end there, we're still going to have to deal with a confused, ignorant, irate coach.
