Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton got himself thrown out Tuesday night during a win over the Wizards.
Walton lost his damn mind after a travel against Washington didn’t get called, and he let the refs have it. He first got hit by a tech as soon as the call was missed. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
A few seconds later he was thrown right out of the game. Watch the sequence unfold below.

Yeah, I think it’s pretty safe to say he was pissed. I’m not sure a travel not getting called is worth getting tossed over, but Walton obviously thought it was.
I can’t remember the last time I saw an NBA coach that fired up. He was deep on the court, and he wasn’t holding back at all.

I guess if you’re going to get ejected, you might as well swing for the fence and go all the way. Walton certainly did that.
It’s great to see a coach actually get this fired up too. As a player, you want to see your coach willing to get into the mix and the mud for you.

Getting tossed is a great way to signal your commitment to the squad. Besides, the Kings ultimately won. So, all is well that ends well.
Now, we’ll have to see if the league hits him with a fine. I certainly hope not.
