Ivan Johnson ejected from summer-league game (video)

Ivan Johnson has a reputation to uphold.

He’s doing his best.

At about the 1:00 mark of this video, Johnson – the former Atlanta Hawk who spent last season in China – explains his mentality for getting back in the NBA: “I’ve got to kind of [f–]  anybody in front of me.”

Playing for the Mavericks’ summer-league team, Johnson sure took that attitude to heart in a way you rarely see in the Vegas league:

    Didn’t seem like it was worth an ejection. A flagrant, perhaps, but it didn’t appear to be a huge push. The ref looked at the guys reaction on the floor before he decided.

      I’m pretty sure he just cussed out the ref, since he’s the dude who got pushed to the floor.

      He was the one on the ground.

    Ivan is a throwback. He would’ve been a great fit for the Pistons.

    A man with that kind of gift of gab must be kept. He got ejected for saying something in a summer league game! That’s worth a min contract alone!
