In a surprising turn of events during Tuesday night's clash against the Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets' star player, Nikola Jokic, found himself ejected after a heated argument over a non-call. 

The reasons behind the ejection remain unclear, leaving fans and analysts questioning the officiating decisions.

Jokic, known for his on-court prowess, expressed disbelief at the ejection, suggesting that whatever transpired didn't warrant such drastic action.

The incident marks the second time this season that Jokic has been prematurely removed from a game, echoing a similar fate that befell his head coach, Michael Malone, earlier in the season.

The NBA's officiating consistency has come under scrutiny, with players highlighting the need for better communication between players and officials.

The lack of dialogue often frustrates players who merely seek an opportunity to express their perspective on calls or game trends. 

 

The incident has sparked anticipation for an official pool report to shed light on the details surrounding Jokic's ejection and the events leading up to it.
