Let me make it clear, the officiating was not why the Miami Heat lost game 4 last night. Was it a travesty? Yes, but that’s not the sole reason they lost. They gave up 50% shooting, while only shooting 39%. And they were outrebounded by 19. Hard to win that way.
Why do we always notice Mr Crawford? He continuously inserts himself into games and becomes the story.
So today, instead of talking about how great Lance Stephenson played, we’re all focused on the angry, little bald guy, who can’t seem to get the calls right.
These are the biggest games of the season. There’s a trip to The Finals at stake. This is what NBA players work all season for. Then THIS guy steps on the court with his goons and they decide that they’re going to ruin this game for the players and the fans.
This is nothing new. Crawford has a long, documented history of just being a bad official, peep this…
Its amazing, you type in “Joey Crawford” on YouTube and there’s a smorgasbord of video content that you can view.
I honestly don’t understand how he can do things like this and still be a working ref at the highest level. He must have pictures of David Stern butt-naked in a hottub, surrounded by Cabbage Patch Kids.
Everyone misses calls, I get that. But these are just blatantly bad calls and he became the show. He always has 4-5 “Look at me!” moments in the game.
Plus not only are they bad calls, he gets indignant with the bad calls. Its one thing to miss the call, but then you’re going to give me a technical because YOU messed up? No wonder Duncan was laughing.
But seriously, this is the biggest stage for the NBA right now. With the Spurs series being over, this is the only bball on tv. LeBron and the Heat are involved so EVERYONE is watching. This is a fantastic series and I’d hate to see the refs play a major role in deciding the outcome.
Get ya mind right Joey and let ’em play. Aint nobody pay to see you…
