Knicks player Bobby Portis has been ejected for getting too physical during a defensive play on the fast break. As Lakers KCP was going up for a lay-up, here comes Bobby Portis thinking he’s in an UFC fight and smacks him across the head. KCP fell to the ground which prompted some players from the Lakers bench to come onto the court. Things got testy, even Lebron James started to press Portis. You could see him telling him that you don’t do that. When a player is in the air like that, you let him complete the play. Apparently its a unspoken courtesy amongst players. Well Portis was soon after separated from other players and ejected from the game.
