Ivan Johnson, former Hawks power forward and one of the most intimidating NBA players in recent memory, was banned from the Phillipine Basketball Association for life this morning for, “addressing the Commissioner with profanities and showing utter disrespect for authority.”
What you see here is the Dallas Mavericks' Ivan Johnson getting tossed from a summer league game against the Charlotte Hornets for
the crime of looking staring at an official and saying "Really, motherfucker?" after having fallen to the floor.
After failing to find a new deal in the NBA this past offseason, Ivan Johnson continued his basketball career in China, signing with the Zhejiang Chouzhou Golden Bulls. He seems to be having a great time.
Don't give a shit about who wins the first-round playoff series between the Hawks and Pacers? Don't worry, neither does anyone else. But you should give a shit about what Roy Hibbert and Gerald Green did last night. Each threw down a dunk that was more than worthy of the playoff stage.
The Atlanta Hawks held practice today at Butler University, and forward/scariest NBA player candidate Ivan Johnson ruined it for everyone by cracking the backboard. Practice ended after that. Nice job, Ivan.
