The fight that broke out after one of the softest ejections of all-time, the Nikola Jokic graze of the face during the Suns-Nuggets game, almost got a hell of a lot more entertaining. That's because the NBA MVP's brothers were close by and wanted a piece of Devin Booker.
Booker was just defending his guy, because he thought he had just had his face karate chopped off. In reality the Nuggets big man grazed the Suns player's face and dude flopped like his nose was no longer attached to his body.
This gets you ejected in today's NBA? 🍦pic.twitter.com/wY3TFWxSto

Had Booker then had to fight Jokic's brothers he probably would have been rightfully pissed at his teammate. Here's video of Jokic's brothers waiting for the okay to rush the floor.

This is why flopping needs to be banned. The referees should have taken a closer look at the play, and instead of tossing Jokic, they should have sent the flopper to an early shower.
