With 7 minutes left in Game 1, B-MEG Head Coach Tim Cone threw a monobloc plastic chair on the court. It's the plastic chair he uses during timeouts. Out of frustration, he used it for something else.
During the broadcast, I mentioned that it reminded me of former Indiana Head Coach Bobby Knight. Bob Knight is famously known for his tempestuous coaching style. If you want to know what's it like to play for Bobby Knight, read "A Season on the Brink" by John Feinstein. Knight is also famously remembered for throwing a chair during a home game against Purdue in 1985:
Joe Lipa, as Ateneo Head Coach in 2001, also threw a chair on the court in a game against Adamson. It's no accident that Joe Lipa is sometimes regarded as the Bobby Knight of the Philippines. They're both passionate coaches. They're both champion coaches. And they're both insensitive to the feelings of chairs. MH
