Marc Davis, who ejected John Wall in a loss to the Houston Rockets on Nov. 7 under questionable circumstances, threw out Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg to the surprise of his team.
Dwyane Wade gave his take on what took place in the 102-95 loss to the L.A. Cliipers on Saturday night.
It was similar to what those around the Wizards felt about Wall's ejection, that Davis was being hot-headed and reactionary:[embed]https://twitter.com/vgoodwill/status/800246264847691777 [/embed]
Note that Wall, who was tossed for what Davis said was "inappropriate language," maintains he never said anything to the official as he walked to the bench during a timeout with 33.3 seconds left in the fourth quarter of a close game.
Although camera angles don't give a definitive look nor pick up sound to determine if Wall said anything to Davis, it appears unlikely.

Davis said he didn't give Wall a second technical foul for brushing shoulders with him as he walked to the bench. Davis explained in a statement that it was because of something Wall said.
When the league office reviewed the matter and assessed the point guard with a $25,000 fine, it wasn't for the alleged "inappropriate language."
The official reasons given by the NBA: Wall was fined for "inappropriate interaction with a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection."
But based on what Wall and Wade have claimed, Davis has "inappropriate interactions" with players and coaches. And based on the perception of Davis around the league, they're not the only ones who feel that way.
