Knicks’ Taj Gibson explodes at referees after two quick technicals and an ejection (Video)

Every league has horrible officiating. We all know it.

During the first quarter of the game at Madison Square Garden between the New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls, the referees called veteran Taj Gibson on a foul for a moving screen, which caused him to get irate. Then called for two technical fouls and was ejected.

MSG Network commentator Mike Bremen was slamming the referees for the atrocious call to call two quick technicals on Gibson.

And he was right. That was abysmal officiating.
