Hedo Turkoglu gets technical for putting hands on ref (Video)
Hedo Turkoglu was reminded Thursday night of one cardinal rule in the NBA: never touch a referee. Turkoglu lost the ball on a drive to the basket and the referee signaled Bulls ball. Hedo was incredulous that a foul wasn’t called, and he immediately ran over to the referee in protest. Even though he meant no harm by touching the referee, the context in which he did it was threatening, so he immediately got a tech. It wasn’t an issue for Orlando as they won in Chicago 99-94, but it was a nice learning lesson for the Michael Jordan of Turkey.
