Sometimes the aggressiveness and physicality of the NBA gets the best of players, and they lash out in frustration at opponents as a result.
Tonight, in the Milwaukee Bucks/New Orleans Pelicans game during the 2nd quarter after running into a hard set screen by Greg Stiemsma, O.J. Mayo let anger get the best of him and elbowed Stiemsma in the face:
Unsurprisingly, Mayo was given a flagrant #2 foul and ejected.
