Vince Carter ejected for elbow to Steven Adams’ head (VIDEO)

Nov 7, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

Vince Carter can expect a league-mandated one-game vacation for this, or at the very least he will pull out his checkbook.

The veteran Mavericks guard was ejected for the third quarter play you see above. Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams caught Carter with an inadvertant elbow getting an offensive rebound, and Carter responded with an intentional elbow to the head. The league frowns on this. And by frowns I mean likes to hand out suspensions.

Carter doesn’t really care.

Hat tip to Eye on Basketball for the video.

    I woulda done the same thing.

    When the league reviews this for further action they should warn him for flopping as well. That “contact” was negligible.
