Josh Richardson Got Ejected For Throwing His Shoe Into The Crowd

During the Miami Heat’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, Heat swingman Josh Richardson  felt he was fouled on a dunk attempt and when he came down, he took his shoe off to try and adjust it while the play continued.

Richardson then aggressively fouled LeBron James and continued to bark at the officials before being sent to the bench by Erik Spoelstra as he continued to try and fix his shoe. At that point, he launched it into the crowd.

It’s pretty clear that throwing shoes into the crowd in any sport is pretty much an automatic ejection. Richardson should expect a fine coming his way as well.
