Angel Reese Ejected for Disrespecting Referee

Angel Reese is embracing her role as the “bad guy,” and she’s certainly living up to it.

“I tried to get an explanation. I did not,” Weatherspoon told reporters. “I don’t know to this moment what has happened.”

According to lead official Maj Forsberg, Reese was ejected for “disrespectfully addressing” an official and then “waving her hand in dismissal.”

Reese’s teammate, Marina Mabrey, attributed the incident to inexperience. “She got two techs, she said something to the ref. Whatever he felt like was the correct call is what he made. It’s more about composure for us in our young years in the WNBA. You’ve got to get to know refs and how they respond to things.”

“People are pulling up to games. We got celebrities coming to games, sold out arenas, just because of one single game. And just look at that. I’ll take that role. I’ll take the bad guy role. And I’ll continue to take that on and be that villain for my teammates. If I wanna be that, I know I’ll go down in history. I’ll look back in 20 years like the reason why we’re watching women’s basketball is not just because of one person. It’s because of me too. I want y’all to realize that.”

Since giving that speech, Reese has been fined, shot 3-12 from the floor, and got ejected.
