In the world of sports, it was a rough weekend a couple weeks ago for #10 BCARs.
Two of them, ironically, play on the same team, the Minnesota Timberwolves. And yet again, ironically, both of them lost control of their emotions, paying the penalty for it … during the same game!
It’s not necessarily rare to see punches thrown at an NBA game between opposing teams, but rarely do fans see punches thrown between teammates. That’s what happened when Rudy Gobert (#10) got into a verbal spat with fellow teammate Kyle Anderson (#13 FCIR), and suddenly threw a punch that forced the team to separate the two players. Rudy was sent home, and later Tweeted: “Emotions got the best of me today. I should not have reacted the way i did regardless of what was said. I wanna apologize to the fans, the organisation and particularly to Kyle, who is someone that i truly love and respect as a teammate.”
Want to hear some more irony? Guess who was the first player to react to the incident, immediately pushing Gobert back? Taurean Prince, another #10 BCAR!
And now the third #10 BCAR we wanted to mention. Jaden McDaniels, who also plays for the Timberwolves, was removed from the same game after the 1st quarter (due to an injury) when he punched a wall out of frustration while walking through the tunnel. Now, Jaden suffers a broken right hand! According to one journalist, “With Rudy Gobert’s status up in the air after throwing a punch at Kyle Anderson on Sunday, the Timberwolves could be short-handed…”
The moral of the story (especially for dominant Animates)? When frustrated, keep your hands in your pockets, whether you’re tempted to punch an animate object (Kyle’s face) or an inanimate object (a wall)!
