Well, that’s one way to ensure that you won’t finish the game.
Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond got himself ejected from Saturday night’s contest against the Chicago Bulls after he lobbed the basketball at the head of Chicago’s Daniel Gafford:

The officials weren’t amused, and promptly told Drummond to go take an early shower. He finished the night with nine points and four rebounds. Was this the appropriate call?
