Josh Richardson threw one of his shoes into the stands before being ejected from Sunday's loss by the Miami Heat to the Los Angeles Lakers.
"I don't want to talk about it. It was a series of events," Richardson explained after the loss. "I got caught up.
"I wasn't really thinking about much," he added. "I was thinking about how frustrated I was. And going forward I can't let that happen."
Richardson hit the floor after he thought he was fouled by Josh Hart on a dunk attempt. As Richardson was on the floor, his shoe came loose and then he flicked it initially right in front of him and then showed it to official Kevin Scott. As play resumed and Richardson was given his fifth personal foul, he threw it against the scorer's table.
When Erik Spoelstra motioned Richardson to head to the bench, Richardson flew his shoe into the stands and he was then given a technical by Scott before ejecting him.
"You saw a competitive will come out," Spoelstra said. "I think probably what you saw more than anything and I agree with Josh -- not throwing his shoe into the stands, that's unacceptable -- but going in for the dunk when there's some contact there and he lost his shoe ... from my angle it looked like there was contact."
