Ebanks Ejected From Lakers Playoff Game

Posted: Updated:

Former West Virginia University basketball star Devin Ebanks may be looking at a fine from the NBA after he was ejected in Monday night's second round playoff game.

Ebanks was on the floor with roughly two minutes to go in the fourth quarter and the Oklahoma City Thunder holding a 33 point lead over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Some players got together following the whistle and Ebanks appeared to throw an elbow in the group. He was immediately ejected and took out his frustration by hitting a chair on the Lakers bench and taking his jersey off as he exited the floor.

Ebanks started all but one of the Lakers first round playoff games due to Metta World Peace's seven-game suspension for throwing an elbow at Oklahoma City's James Harden at the end of the regular season.

When World Peace returned to the Lakers lineup, Ebanks saw a decline in his minutes played. Perhaps he was frustrated with his lack of playing time until the game was out of hand. Perhaps he was frustrated with the way his second NBA season has gone, which included beginning the season as a starter, a demotion to the NBA development league and an eventual return to the Lakers as a starter for the injured Kobe Bryant and eventually suspended Metta World Peace.

It has been a frustrating season for Ebanks and his latest actions may cost him some money.
