Victor Oladipo taught an official a lesson at Madison Square Garden during Friday’s game against the Knicks.
Oladipo is a dynamic player with quick hands, and players — as well as refs, apparently — need to always be ready to possibly receive a pass from him (or, in the case of defenders, to swat or knock it away).
One particular ref learned that lesson the hard way on Friday night, when Oladipo threw a pass to him, for some reason. The ball drilled the ref, and he stayed down on the court for a few brief moments.
We really have to wonder why Oladipo actually looked right at the ref and threw the ball to him. That was a definite brain fart.
