There’s no excuse for Sean Williams throwing up on the Mavs bench earlier this week but feeling sick because you were just given a technical for dunking on Ibaka is acceptable. I’ve been talking about the subject for weeks with examples of playing getting techs, fouls and ejections after dunks. If the dunk was such a marketable trademark to the sport I bet the refs would like to see the signature move banned like the old NCAA days where we had to watch high flyers like David Thompson lay the ball in when their hands were a foot above the rim.
