Ejected Walker says he simply got fed up with ‘blatant non-calls’

HENRY Walker admitted he simply had enough with the officiating, the reason he lost his cool and got ejected in Blackwater’s 133-99 loss to Magnolia on Wednesday night in the PBA Governors Cup at the Astrodome.

The Elite import time and again complained about the referees’ calls and non-calls before getting ejected on a second technical foul at the 1:34 mark of the third quarter and the Hotshots in control, 94-68.

“I just had enough of it. I’ve been through eight games this conference getting beat on. Just blatant no-calls going to the hole, getting hit, I got my eye black the last game, foul on me, every little thing I do,” Walker said.

“I can’t give anybody respect if they don’t want to give me respect.”

Walker, who finished with 27 points and 18 rebounds, said game officials approached him later on and admitted missing the call.

“It’s too late now. But they don’t miss anything else,” said Walker. “This is the PBA, it’s supposed to be a physical league. So let’s play. Don’t let one side be physical and I can’t be physical. And that’s what happened.”

Walker said he kept his silence for the past seven games, but simply got fed up.

“I had enough,” he said. “I’m only human, man I wish in times like that I’ve done a good job of keeping it together. But today it’s just frustrating.”

The former NBA player though vowed not to lose his cool again.

“They won’t get under my skin again because I can see the game that they’re playing. It is what it is,” said the import.
