When our favorite Cleveland Cavaliers guard Tyronn Lue jumped over an official during a game against the Washington Wizards in November of 2014, some people are going to have a problem with it. At the time, Lue said he jumped on the official because he was frustrated by his team’s play on the court. He said “I just couldn’t take it anymore. It was hard to watch this team lose and lose and lose. We’re still trying to win a championship. I couldn’t take it anymore.” The official that Lue jumped over said that the incident was completely out of character for Lue, and that Lue is “really a stand-up guy.”
As you know, Allen Iverson is a basketball legend. He was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2001, the NBA’s Most Valuable Player three times, a six-time NBA scoring champion, and the NBA’s all-time leader in points, assists, steals, and games played. But, before all those accolades, Iverson was known for a minor gaffe that became an internet sensation. During a playoff matchup with the Detroit Pistons in 2003, Iverson dribbled down the court and stepped over a defender, and tried to pass the ball to a teammate. The move was a fake, and Iverson was called for a violation. While the NBA does not have a rule against “fake passing,” Iverson was fined

I went up to him and said: You keep saying you’ll give me fifty… I’m here,m—–er. And he’s like: I don’t even know who you are. Who are you? I said: I’m the same person who won the championship ring last year.
