I played sports for a long time and the language doesn't bother me, but throwing balls and pushing them violently is a problem. In football, coaches would snatch us up and move us where they wanted us, but he shoving them just to be a dick.
The highlight reel is a few minutes, but they had hours of videos of him being a dick.
If a coach would have ever drilled us with balls like that, he would have gotten an ass kicking.
No, but chucking balls at players' heads, kicking players, and manhandling them is. It's not the fucking army. It's college basketball. He's using his position of authority to be abusive. There's a difference between forceful motivation and being, well, that guy.
