This is not a great look for veteran Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Melvin Hunt. With his team getting blown out by the lowly Chicago Bulls Wednesday night, Hunt let his frustration boil over.

Check out Hunt toss a chair during a timeout, almost hitting star Hawks guard Trae Young in the process.

As the announcers noted, that just can’t happen. We fully understand the frustration. After all, the Hawks were down 91-65 after the third quarter.

However, you have to be smarter than that. We’re now wondering whether the 15-year veteran coach will be disciplined by his Hawks squad. He probably should be.
