Went back to watch. Was like I remembered. White traveled, not a terrible call because he took a step back with the left foot then a mini step forward with the right before jumping to shoot. All Samspon does is grimace. He doesn’t look at any refs. He does not say a word. He proceeds to take off his tie. Then turns to throw it next to his chair without being demonstrative and sits down.
As Sampson said, he has been doing it all season. Sometimes puts it in his pocket and sometimes throws it on the ground. The ref was completely wrong but in a way this was a learning lesson for Sampson. When the refs are making bad calls and you have let them know that, don’t give them any extra opportunities for more bad calls. Next time the refs have an agenda, leave it on or put it in your pocket.
Even coaches can have learning experiences in games like this.
