...doesn't mean we can't talk about horseshit NBA officials.
So, the internet is passing around this clip of Ken Mauer calling 5 Technicals on the Wolves in 10 seconds. Not that such inane officiating is unique to Ken, or the NBA at large. This is just a reminder that it happens all year long, not just during Stern's (soon to be) 4 month run to the finals.
But let's take a look at Ken. You know, Ken did hard time. 5 months in jail for tax evasion among other counts. So, you know, a felon is out there calling your games. Stern has NO PROBLEM IN ANY WAY with OFFICIALS BEING CRIMINALS, JUST PLAYERS. Sorry, that was CAPS overload...but I want to stress those points. The disparity of an actual real, sane world and the one David sits in gets wider by the day.
Hey, wait a minute. Didn't I once write a post about another shitty NBA ref who was guilty of the same thing, but never missed a game? I sure did. Good to see very little has changed in the Association.
