Midway through the third quarter Chris Paul’s brother, C.J. Paul was kicked out of the Houston Rockets vs Utah Jazz playoff game from the stands.
This season has been crazy from the players and the referees and now the fans and the referees. Somethings going to have to change.

“The guy next to me called (referee James Williams) a (expletive), but they thought it was me,” C.J., who played collegiately at Hampton University and University of South Carolina-Upstate, told reporters.
“The thing is, I know James. He reffed me in college. But (the security guard) comes up to me, and says ‘Hey, we need to talk to you in the back.’ I said, ‘for what?’ I told them what happened. I don’t talk like that.”
Asked about the incident after the game, Chris was unsure of the specifics.
“I don’t know,” he said. “I saw them trying to pull my brother out. That’s out. That’s out. … Might not be many playoff games I’ve played in, but he’s been at all of them. That’s out. Don’t put him out.”
This is another situation with a referee and a fan, this year has been crazy! Now, I want to hear from the people who were sitting by C.J.
