Veteran NBA referee Joey Crawford is under the mistaken impression he is the biggest star of every game he officiates. His over-the-top theatrics and made-for-television antics have long been loathed by serious and casual basketball fans alike.
That being said, he is pretty damn entertaining.
Here he is stopping a Nikola Mirotic free-throw attempt with the intensity rarely seen by human eyes.
What a showman.
He must have gotten four–maybe five–inches of air there.
Maybe next year we can get him the dunk contest on a special six-foot rim.
Just think of the ratings.
