Greg Stiemsma set a screen on O.J. Mayo in the first quarter of Friday’s Bucks – Pelicans game. Mayo, the 6’4″ guard, did not appreciate the screen and let the 6’11” center know by throwing a punch/forearm/shove at Stiemsma’s throat. (Maybe it was meant for his head, but the height different came into play…) Replays were reviewed by referees and Mayo was given a flagrant-2 and ejected.
He’s currently awaiting trial.
Will they really try to get rid of the flag at events?
Large numbers tuned in to the spectacle.
NBA free agency basically over, the Women’s World Cup over … what’s a sports fan to do?
