Embarrassed Rick Carlisle Has To Apologize For Angry Rick Carlisle Kicking Fan With Ball

  • Tom Lorenzo

What goes around comes around, I suppose. After Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle let out a little frustration by kicking the ball (into the crowd, nonetheless), he was give a technical — his second of the game — which, in turn, meant he was sent to the locker room to cool down early in the 4th quarter. One good kick deserves another.

Credit Carlisle, at least, for checking in on the fan who he nailed with the ball. Classy move, I suppose. It was the least he could do. The most he could do was simply not kick the ball into the crowd. But, it’s a little too late for that.
