Imagine an exhilarated presence, like Michael Jordan, to which your team belongs, and he sits at the end of your bench during a match. You will probably want to do everything necessary to impress the boss, right?
Malik Monk failed miserably on that front at the end of Wednesday night's game against the Pistons.

But as Lamb celebrated his first-ever NBA drummer, the officials huddled in front of the court monitor, where they determined that Mack and his replacement, Bismack Biyombo, had run several meters to the ground on the other side. field in anticipation of Lamb's firing. go in.
While all this was going on, Jordan called Mack and gently reprimanded him for his exuberance, giving him some teasing smells behind his head to bring his point back.

"My heart stopped for a second there," Hornets coach James Borrego told AP, adding that he had never seen this call gone during an NBA game.
Lamb said, "I thought they'd call like three technicians, get three free throws – something like that."
Jordan's disapproval would have been a lot less fun if it had happened.
