Elfrid Payton technical

The New York Knicks were not having it Sunday night against a much better Denver Nuggets squad.

How bad did it get? We’re glad you asked. Guard Elfrid Payton was called for a technical after he checked in without his jersey tucked in.

Officials on hand in Denver noticed it and gave Payton a technical. In the process, said official absolutely trolled Chris Paul. Check it out.

That’s downright hilarious stuff right there. The president of the NBPA, Paul has a leadership role. It includes making rules. We’re assuming that’s where the official was coming from here.

In any event, the NBA is back with full tilt petty. Got to love it!
