I like the guy, but this was weird. Weird on both ends. Seems like the ref got scared and just tossed him. Probably could've given him a tech and warned him, unless Amir also said something in the tug-o-war over the freethrow make

I am not sure which one of these is more weird...

The ref overreacting, and feeling the need to throw a guy out cause he wanted to touch the ball

or,

A monster of a man going after a 60 year old like he was going to beat his ***.

So what I got from this was that Amir was trying to talk to the ref by holding onto the ball in order to delay the ball getting to the F/T shooter. When the ball holding gets a little more "intense" you can see that Amir is saying "one sec, one sec" or something along those lines showing he wasnt finished making his point. Clearly the ref wasnt having none of that and just wanted to continue with the free throws and when Amir was preventing that he got scared and just tossed him out.

Lol he just wanted to hold the ball.. He always does that.. One sec one sec was he wanted one second to hold the ball lol

Equal stupidity provided by both sides. Let the man touch the ball for crying out loud. Wrestling the ball away from the guy probably not the brightest idea. Perhaps asking to hold it would have been in order? Probably would have been granted because of the show of respect?

Thanks Amir this will no doubt help us get calls late in games which is already a huge advantage the Raptors possess over the rest of the NBA.....oh wait...

Ref was being a *****. There's always one player who likes to hold the ball (no idea why) during free throws. And this ref decided, Hey...I'm going to be a ******* about this...

He got there a little late, but star player or not touching the ball in between free throws is par for the course for certain players on a lot of teams.

Not the kind of intensity you've been searching for if you're a Raptors fan.

I have a cat named Amir Johnson from when he was on the Pistons, one of my favorite players in the league and I've never known for him to act this way before.

Yep at this point refs just hand him the ball. Amir probably shouldn't have grabbed it from the ref like that. Ref was a douche though.

Ref should have just let him hold the damn ball for a sec.

If that were LeBron it would've been no problem.

It looks like Amir wanted to talk to the ref about the foul and the ref was ignoring him. Amir held on to the ball to get his attention.

It was crazy but not TOTALLY senseless.

Johnson said he has a habit of rubbing the ball before handing it to the ref during free throws. While it appeared that the two had words, Johnson claimed nothing much was said.

He said he got frustrated when he wasn't given an explanation for the ejection.

"I guess the ref didn't let me have the ball so we kind of got into a tug of war," Johnson said. "No words were really said and he rejected me out of the game and I kind of lost my cool from there."

I know that it's his "routine" to hold the ball before giving it back to the ref. But seriously, get over it. If it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen.

If something that small bothers him, then clearly he has a compulsive habit that needs to be taken care of.

He isn't anyone special. He's a basketball player getting paid millions. It's a privilege to play the game. Him not doing a routine won't be the end James Naismith's great invention.

Every NBA player rubs the ball after the free throws ie) KG

But because we're the Raptors we can't do that. There is no other team in the league that gets ****ed by the refs the way the Raps get ****ed.

I understand Amir's frustration and he should of slapped that ****in ref at back of head... Im just surprised he couldn't rip the ball out of the refs hands... now thats pathetic... LOL

pretty sure that isn't why he got pissed he got pissed because he got ejected and the ref just quickly walked away with no explanation. top that of with the raptors 4-18 record he got out of character. the only techs he ever got before that were slapping the back boards on dunks. if it was a compulsive habit it would have happened plenty times before.

He got mad because the ref gave him no reason for the ejection.

I thin amir had pent up rage inside because of the losing in Toronto. He always grabs the ball on free throws. A lot of players do it to feel the grip/hex the ft shooter. Ref just didn't give him the ball and ejected him stupidly without reason.. Because there really is no explanation for that stupid.

what's the point of even trying if the refs are going to shaft the raptors one way or another every night?

then they play soft because they are afraid of getting fouls and get scrutinized by the league.
