Don't make a boneheaded mistake on Michael Jordan's watch. The greatest player in NBA history still doesn't let this nonsense fly. Just ask Malik Monk, who nearly blew the game for the Hornets on Wednesday night.
The context of the smack is that Jeremy Lamb had just hit a long jumper to put the Hornets up 108-106 vs. the Pistons with 0.3 seconds left in the game. Detroit technically had a chance to send it to overtime off a tip-in. Then, Monk got called for a "Too Many Players" technical when celebrating the victory too early, which is a silly mental mistake.
The tech sent Langston Galloway to the line to make it a single point margin, and the Pistons now had a last second attempt to take the lead. It was always a long shot, and Nic Batum ended up stealing the inbound pass anyway.
But it's the principle of the thing that really matters.
