The Intern on: Questionable Reffing

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Sunday was quite a peculiar day in the NBA. First off you have Tim Duncan accumulating 2 technical fouls while sitting on the bench and secondly you have Eddy Curry going a whole 43 minutes without committing a single foul. As I am sitting here typing this I am still having a hard time believing The Big Fundamental managed to get ejected while sitting on the bench. I could and picture ‘Sheed and Nate Robinson accomplishing that feat but not Duncan. Apparently what initiated the confrontation was Joe Crawford hearing Duncan murmur “The Ball never lies” after a questionable call. The second T came less then 2 minutes later when Duncan was laughing on the bench. What really irks me is that there is no way Crawford could know what Duncan was laughing at because he was at the other end of the court. Seriously Crawford, lay off the boozing before work. This is definitely unconfirmed but Isaiah must have promised the team of refs for the Raps game all the stripers and yayo. One can imagine because there is no way Curry can go a whole 43 minutes without perpetrating at least one foul.
