O.J. Mayo has to be restrained after getting ejected (Video)
During the first quarter of Saturday’s game between the Bucks and Timberwolves, O.J. Mayo was ejected after picking up his second technical foul. And, he was not at all happy about it.
Mayo was given his first technical foul during a timeout, of all times, for arguing a non-call. He objected to it and received a second technical for continuing to have words with the officials. That’s when Mayo’s temper boiled over.

The veteran guard needed to be restrained by coaches as well as Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo before eventually being escorted from the court and back to the locker room.
Mayo is the second oldest player on the Bucks and a guy looked at the provide leadership to a young team. That clearly wasn’t the case in this instance. It remains to be seen if Mayo’s actions result in a suspension, but going after an official is surely not something the NBA will be too fond of.
