NBA and Thunder Jazz foul call.

April 16, 2010

Wow, the NBA is quite Hypocritical! 

I can’t believe yesterday the NBA made a statement saying that the referees made a mistake by not calling the foul on CJ Miles at the end of the Utah Jazz vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game!  We have all seen it for years where the referees choose not to call a foul at the end of the game so the referees don’t decide a game by a foul call!   

The NBA does all it can to protect their referees, yet they come out and tell everyone they missed the call?  You have to be kidding me!  If this is a new precedent, we may be seeing more games decided at the free throw line at the end of the game.  I doubt this will be the case, but I believe the league announced that the call was wrong because it was Kevin Durrant that was fouled!  If Jeff Green had the ball at the end of the game and CJ Miles guarded him the same way, you think the next day the league would come down on the referees the same way?  I really doubt it! 

The playoffs are right around the corner and we will see if this same situation arises then!
