Don’t mess with Mike Abdenour

New, comment

Not to beat a dead horse, but I thought this was kind of funny:

After the video was complete, longtime Detroit team trainer Mike Abdenour hustled to the press table and barked, "Who the (expletive) is responsible for that?"

Leland Patton, event presentation director, answered, "That's me." Abdenour asked for his name and returned to the bench.

You gotta love Mike Abdenour. He's a Pistons icon, having been with the team for 27 years. He's always ragging on the refs for bad calls, and it's always good for laughs when he randomly goes too far and picks up a technical foul.

Plus, this tidbit gives me an excuse to run a question for an old chat he did on Pistons.com:
