Joey Wright protest?

Did anyone see the post Melbourne game press conference? Did Joey Wright explain his reasoning for the ejection? He kept saying he was shitty about the grabbing that United were able to get away with so I'm guessing it was a protest to highlight this fact.

Earlier this year I remember he had a sly dig at United when he said something like "it's amazing the team they've managed to put together within the salary cap". He might think they're getting too much help on and off the court?

There is no salary cap anymore, Someone needs to tell him.

Is this the same Joey Wright who coached the cap-busting Bullets when there was a salary cap?

He has said they got 14 FT's after his ejection. Pretty obvious to me what his point was. Pop got ejected the other day must mean the Spurs are done as no one will want to play for him anymore

2/3 of the refs called bit 36ers games this week. Both games the 36ers were hit on rebounds and drives with no calls

2/3 refs counted Prathers shit which was clearly after the siren and only canceled after they review it. If refs can’t get simple things like shot clock violations correct then other calls are questionable too

The quality of play in th NBL exceeds the refs quality.

Looked like they stopped calling fouls on Melbourne after 1/4 time.

Of course it was a protest. He's done it before and he'll no doubt do it again.
