Done with horrible officiating.  Football can't come soon enough.

Maybe the ref is just a Westbrook fan.

/or maybe the ref has a side gig

NBA coaches should have a challenge flag for situations like this.
/ If it was PGA golf, I could call the office and report it.  Then later the officials would notify the players of the change in score.

Too bad this didn't happen in OKC.  They would have shown it on the jumbotron over and over.  And over again.

DRTFA: NBA coaches should have a challenge flag for situations like this.


The "challenge flag" is to play better across the other 100-plus possessions.

Replays encourage people to focus on minutiae at the expense of the whole, they are stupid, get rid of them.  Which is what I would be saying, right now, if the Eagles hadn't been awarded that catch.

Thank goodness the Supreme Court upheld that ruling, Scalia really knows his constitutional law.

Surprised Draymond didn't get T'd up for that too.

The NBA is a joke when your superstars pull crap like this.

This is what happens when women are allowed to referee.

During the infamous 2002 Western Conference Final Game 6 between the Lakers and the Kings, Kobe Bryant elbowed Mike Bibby in the face and Bibby was called for the foul.  And that apparently wasn't just a bad call--Tim Donaghy specifically referred to that game as fixed.

It goes back to 1988, when Laimbeer didn't foul Kareem. Stole a title from Detroit.

NBA refs are make the WWE look like the pinnacle integrity.

max_pooper: NBA refs are make the WWE look like the pinnacle integrity.


Not a fan but it's my understanding that WWE refs are very m uch the pinnacle of integrity. They're the ones that control the match by giving the fighters queues and overall dictate the flow of the match. A WWE ref is basically akin to an orchestra conductor, nothing like a boxing or MMA ref.

Well that female ref was calling some dumb shiat for sure, but not enough to give GS the game.  GS has been playing like crap lately.
