NEW YORK (AP) -- The exhibition game between the New York Knicks and Maccabi Tel Aviv has been delayed for about 10 minutes because the visiting coach refused to leave the floor after being ejected in the third quarter.
In a bizarre scene, a rabbi even came onto the court to ask the referees to let Pini Gershon remain. Gershon eventually left after a discussion with the officials, his assistant coaches and NBA security personnel.
Gershon was hit with two quick technical fouls in the third quarter, the second coming on a play that went against the Knicks.
New York's Al Harrington was called for an offensive foul right in front of the Maccabi bench, and Gershon quickly started screaming at replacement referee Ben Taylor, who ejected him.
