Aaron Brooks took one for the team by testing out the above theory. He received a technical foul, and most recently suspended for a game, for throwing the ball at an official during the Phoenix Suns March 18 game versus the Golden State Warriors. The below video shows Aaron inexplicably chucking the ball at the ref following a play in which he felt a foul should have been called.

The league announced the suspension in a release today:

Brooks has been suspended one game without pay for throwing a ball at an official and striking him in the leg. The incident occurred with 7:46 remaining in the fourth period of the Suns’ 108-97 victory over the Golden State Warriors at the US Airways Center in Phoenix.
