The New York Knicks played the Israeli team Maccabi Tel Aviv on Sunday. The crazy game featured an ejection of the Israeli head coach and Rabbi intervention.

Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, who organized yesterday’s Knicks-Maccabi Tel Aviv charity game at the Garden, claimed the referees did wrong by ejecting Maccabi coach Pini Gershon, who nearly created an international incident yesterday when he refused to leave the Garden court.

Gershon picked up two technicals in a 53-second span — an automatic ejection in the NBA — with 5:05 left in the third quarter of the Knicks 106-91 exhibition victory. But Gershon stubbornly stayed put after referee Ben Taylor gave him the heave-ho, creating a 10-minute delay as Garden security, the referees, his assistant coach and even Knicks guard Nate Robinson tried to get him to depart.

With the referees threatening to forfeit the Israeli team, Gershon, seen winking and snickering on the sidelines, wouldn’t budge before he finally agreed to be escorted off to cheers from the pro-Maccabi crowd of 14,602.
