This had me absolutely baffled. Really rubbed me the wrong way. Are they that tight? Is he a fan of Beverly? Can you imagine a ref saying "2 free throws for King James" or "technical foul on Bossman99"? Since he was the one making most of the horrendous calls (imo), it was not a good look.These refs are GARBAGE!!
And they even call him “PatBev.”
OK This is just flat out funny!
Nah, it was the right call. It was an Oscar worthy performance by Beverley but Crowder absolutely deserved a technical there if for nothing else than him bringing his hand down on Pat's head.
I get the rule. The rule says unnecessary, and he did make contact to the head. However, you have to allow the player to brace himself. It could have been argued that he was trying to brace himself. I did notice that Crowder didn't argue that point though. He appears to be arguing he was fouled on the shot. Either way it was satisfying Bev was smacked on the head because he is a dirty punk.
Ha! It’s funny, but right before that that moment, I wasn’t feeling great about any comeback but once KAT started jawing I started to think about how young, stupid teams should never poke the bear and wake a sleeping giant. And that’s exactly what happened.xc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media
