Renaldo Balkman loses it, chokes teammate in Philippines game (VIDEO)

Mar 8, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

UPDATE 1:35 pm: Renaldo Balkman has issued a public apology.

11:27 am: If you were wondering what happened to former Knick and Nugget Renaldo Balkman (he was released by the Knicks to make room for J.R. Smith on the roster when Smith returned from China), the answer is he is playing in the Philippines.

Actually, might want to make that was playing in the Philippines, because you got to think he got let go after this tirade where he pushes and chokes teammates who are trying to keep him away from the referee. Actually stay away from the third referee he went to talk to about a call he didn’t like at the end of the game.

Thanks to The Big Lead and LosThatSportsBlog for finding the video.
