A bunch of us who know each other from high school -- as classmates, coaches, or playing rivals -- got together after our respective basketball gmaes thrusday night, and the following story was told involving two of the coaches in our group.

Team A & Team B playing... Coach B beckons for Coach A to come to half court, as if he is going to discuss something or make his post-game beverage request...

Team B Coach then tells the official next to him that Coach A is out of his box.

Coach A gets whacked.

I would have loved to have seen that in person

hahahahahahaha....

But I gotta tell ya Stat Man...I'll wager two Seahawk tickets against two tickets to your state fair, that most of the officials on this forum (myself included) would not "T" the coach that was out of his box.

Amen,

That technical foul is severely lacking in common sense.

I gotta admit, it sounds like an urban legent to me. I mean, if Coach B is beckoning Coach A "to come to" half-court, doesn't that mean that Coach B is there, too? In thinking this over, I can't think of a single really bad ref who would T Coach A and not Coach B in this situation. It's just a little too neat and tidy.

The credibility of the story increases exponentially to the number of brown pops consumed.
