Just because you’re in the NBA doesn’t mean you’re safe from a good, old-fashion talking to by your coach–and, luckily for us fans, they are usually caught on camera for our viewing pleasure.

Salah Mejri of the Dallas Mavericks got ejected after scoring only two points in their game against the Washington Wizards on Monday night. As you might imagine his head coach Rick Carlisle wasn’t pleased and let Mejri have it as he walked past the bench and on into the locker room.

“You have two f**king points, get the f**k outta here,” Carlisle got caught saying to the Tunisian center.

I’ve always had a tremendous amount of respect for Rick Carlisle, but after this stunt he just might be my favorite coach in the association.

I guess it makes sense that Carlisle has a little fire in him. With Mark Cuban as the owner, you better believe the Mavericks head coach has to match that intensity every now and then.
