Look, at this point, we’re all fairly confident that NFL refs have completely phoned it in. There is no better evidence of this than watching last night’s abortion of a MNF game. The atrocity that is NFL officiating has been the best thing to happen to NBA refs, who could basically jerk off at half court and still be just the second most egregious officiating crew in sports right now.
Just short of stroking their kielbasas at center court, the zebras for the Knicks/Heat game let one of the most appalling travels in the history of the sport go uncalled. Carmelo Anthony took at least seven steps. And I know the NBA puts as little emphasis on traveling as the NFL does domestic abuse, but shit, I’ve taken less steps on a treadmill.
James Naismith is rolling over in his grave right now.
