Referee Leroy Richardson’s bounce pass to Manu Ginobili at the free-throw line was on the money. The problem was that the Spurs’ star wasn’t paying any attention.
Ginobili took the blooper in stride, channeling his improv training to call a fake technical foul on Richardson.
What’s the penalty for a player-imposed T on an official?
I’m not entirely sure but if it doesn’t involve a suspension of whistle privileges, the system is broken.
