Bulls' Taj Gibson on rare ejection

USA TODAY Sports

Asking questions was not a good thing on Saturday, according to Bulls forward Taj Gibson.

Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson was ejected from a game for the first time in his career during Saturday's 93-85 win over the New York Knicks.

Gibson picked up a technical foul after arguing a foul call late in the first half. He came out of the game and as he walked to the bench, according to Aggrey Sam of Comcast Sports Net, turned back and said, 'Are you serious?,' which resulted in his second technical and ejection.

Sam points out that Gibson has a reputation for being one of the league's most polite players, so the quick technicals on him were surprising.

"You've got a lot of different guys complaining about calls. I'm never the type to complain about calls or anything like that. I try to just lead by example and let my game speak for itself. I just overreacted, I guess," Gibson told Sam. "[The official] didn't give me any explanation. He just T'd me up."
