Renaldo Balkman was drafted by the New York Knicks in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft and went on to have a brief, uneventful career with New York and the Denver Nuggets before traveling overseas to play in the Philippine Basketball Association.

 Apparently during a late game situation Balkman was aggravated by an official’s call, and that eventually led to Balkman choking one of his own teammates, Arwind Santos:

Well, alright. I wonder if they have anger management specialists over in the Philippines. Balkman took to Twitter to issue an apology for his actions:

Balkman does get some credit for owning up to his actions, but there is never any excuse for losing your cool to that level in professional basketball.
