Taj Gibson: Fans in Cleveland are ‘classless’

Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson was understandably upset after he was ejected from Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday night. He wasn’t just angry with Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova, however.

Gibson also took aim at the fans. When he was on his way to the locker room after being called for a flagrant-2 foul, Gibson had a towel thrown his way. He wasn’t happy.

“That’s what happens when you’re in Cleveland,” Gibson said after the game, per Dave DeNatale of “It’s classless.”


You can’t really blame Gibson for being aggravated. For starters, he was ejected for trying to kick his leg free after Dellavedova put him in a leg lock that the officials completely missed. That resulted in two free throws for Dellavedova, and he made both. The Cavs also kept the ball and converted a layup, which gave them an 87-73 lead with about 10 minutes remaining in the game.

Having something thrown at you after that is just the icing on the cake.
