Nuggets’ Jordan Hamilton Ejected For Throwing Punch At Steven Adams (Video)

Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton was ejected during the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s game against the Thunder after throwing a punch at center Steven Adams. Hamilton was reacting to a hip check from Adams and was originally assessed a Flagrant 1 but it was later upgraded to a Flagrant 2 (automatic ejection) by referees after review.

    That’s really really weak. It’s not the first time Adams has had problems with players

    Wow. Adams is lucky to be alive after that vicious right hook. I can only assume he is at the hospital right now, clinging to life by a thread. What a joke.

    Adams was setting a screen and the guy reacted because he was surprised but didn’t connect with the swing which was more of a shoulder slap. Let the big guys play on.

    Wow! Adams must be 1 strong dude to not even flinch after the vicious right hook. Sorry, to me no foul

    Steven Adams getting under the skin of overly sensitive players. Some of them veterans:
    Nate Robinson – ejected for striking him
    Vince Carter – ejected for striking him
    Byron Mullens – refuses to shake his hand after game
    Jermaine O’Neal – angry confrontation
    Jordan Hamilton – ejected for striking him
    Poor Steve. Getting no love for a little bump and thump.
