Damn Dude might have lost a job right there.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Renaldo Balkman in the Philippines... This is news to me. Hilarious news.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Damn lol if that was the NBA he would have been ejected the moment he even touched the ref!!!lol Not to mention he probably would have been suspended for 30 games + or even maybe the rest of the season.

What a dumb bleep. Overreact much? The short dude on defense swung at the ball and popped him pretty good in the head. Guess the ref didn't see it and he goes berserk about it.

Damn that was weird. Dude seriously lost control. I'd be shocked if he still had a job over there after that.

Saw this coming...

Basketball-Ex-NBA player banned in Philippines for "choking" team mate

March 11 (Reuters) - Former NBA player Renaldo Balkman has been banned from the professional basketball league in the Philippines for grabbing a team mate around the neck during a game.

The former New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets player has also been slapped with a fine of 250,000 Philippine pesos ($6,100) over the incident, Philippine Basketball Association commissioner Chito Salud said in a statement on Monday.

Balkman, who was playing for the Petron Blaze Boosters against the Philippines-based Alaska Aces, assaulted Arwind Santos while his team mate tried to stop him from venting his frustration at a referee's decision.

Salud said he took into consideration Balkman's past record as a player, which included a head-butting incident during a FIBA-Americas game between his Puerto Rico side and Venezuela.

"I also took into consideration Balkman's evident disregard for local and the host country's sensibilities highlighted by his choking act on-court in full public view of his own team mate who was trying to pacify him," Salud said.

"I do encourage passion for the game but I also want to firmly instil a culture of accountability among our players. If one does something that violates the rules and the norms of sportsmanship and decent behaviour, he will be made accountable."

The 28-year-old also pushed away his other team mates and one of his coaches during the match, which the Boosters went on to lose 73-83

It was not clear from the statement if the ban was for good.

"Basketball reasons" is as believable coming from Mitch Kupchak as it was coming from David Stern. #IWantedPhil

fined then banned, nice. PBA isn't exactly that great of a league but there so many more leagues even farther below it that Balkman will now have to play in, eventually hel have to come back to the US where he will become a drug addict and land in jail
