Of Rabbis, the Knicks, and Angry Coaches

To be frank, I’m shocked it took this long for a rabbi to make his presence felt at MSG: “So a basketball coach, an N.B.A. referee and a rabbi walk onto the court at Madison Square Garden locked in an argument. Stop me if you’ve heard this one. The coach has just been ejected from the game after being called for his second technical foul but refuses to leave the floor. And while the referee, the rabbi and a group of officials in dark suits try to persuade the coach to go to the locker room, the players start an impromptu half-court shooting contest. The punch line is that this actually happened — during the third quarter of the Knicks’ preseason game against Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv on Sunday.”

    Olimpiakos comes and barely could leave, amongst death treaths and money owed to playes; Maccabi’s Coach needed some Rabbi escorting him out… and that’s why the L, with all its troubles, is still the greatest sports league in the world (for any sports/country).

    wasn’t the rabbi trying to get the coach some leniency from the ref? as in “i know he has 2 techs and is going nuts ref…but if come on, if you let him stay you’ll be setting an example for kids all over the world to be forgiving and nice” ha, what a shmuck…2 t’s=peace out homey
