Christian Standhardinger was Thrown out by his Coach After Committing a Technical Foul

Christian Standhardinger Too Passionate or Just Defiant?

It is not the first time that we have heard the news that the Filipino-German Christian Standhardinger was involved in a brawl or a debate, whether it's against his coach or another player. Before the Jones Cup, Calvin Abueva and Standhardinger had their altercation together during a scrimmage between the national team and Alaska Aces. Both players down played the incident. 

Now at the Jones Cup, Christian Standhardinger was at the center of attention once again but this time it's for a good reason. He was playing hard ball and hustling every game that immediately got him praises from the fans and even from his teammates and coach.  But behind these commendations, there were also comments about him answering and being resistant to his coach. 

Against Qatar, we have seen a frustrated Standhardinger who collected 5 fouls that resulted in him only being able to play 9:11 minutes. Nothing was going right and emotions were pouring as Standhardinger played physical ball game against Iraq who is also being physical against him. He was doing his job, however, last night's game must have gone to his head as he was doing unnecessary things that irked the coaches and even his team mates. 

At one point in the game, he even looked like he has thrown a punch in the gut of an Iraqi player who went down for a good minute before even recovering. During the last few minutes of the game, he also initiated unnecessary contact that resulted in a technical foul. 

While he was walking off the court he was talking to his coach as if he was pointing the scoreboard that the technical foul he committed was not going to cost them the game. But Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes was having none of it and threw him out of the court for good. 

Is this a case of Christian Standhardinger being too passionate? 

Do you think he can get his emotion in check?

Did Coach Chot over reacted by throwing him out?
