Does not give in to big names. This guy is on record as being the first official to ever eject LeBron James…

Note to kids… This level of extreme self-entitlement will get you a quick hook.

For every other player, it’s a simple flagrant one. For Draymond who waves and salutes the Memphis crowd after the play, it’s an ejection and rightfully so.

So you're saying that a ref should go beyond the standard stated in the rule and deem something a flagrant 2 because a player was playing around with the crowd? LOL. Draymond should be applauded for his showmanship and how he embraces the heel role in a hostile environment. Don't we want athletes to be fun? That was harmless, good fun he was having with the Memphis crowd. He didn't go Ron Artest on them.

He’s bringing a high school girls basketball standard to the NBA. He’s a fraud. Read his blog

I don't think I agree. Dramond hit him in the face with one hand and grabbed his jersey with the other with him ending up on the floor. The hit to the face alone is a Flagrant one, but combine it with the grab and follow through with the other arm it bumps it up to a 2.

Also, you say he is a quality referee not giving into big names then follow up with he ejected Draymond because of his name. Which is it?

As I said, neither part alone was, but combine both parts, basically a flagrant 1 combine with a second foul with the other arm and I can see it. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was a 1, but neither was I surprised it got called a 2.

Plus, the Ws pulled it out anyhow. Just got Draymond some more rest.

I'm guessing he's gonna come out extra motivated tomorrow, which the Warriors will need in order to contain the unstoppable Jaren Jackson, Jr.

He only made it about the referee instead of the call because he wanted to mention LeBron getting thrown out.
And it is for this that I wish an All-Star line up of : Butler, Embiid, LeBron, Paul George, and Draymond for the Pacers.

Apparently this guy works for the NBA Replay Center. He's since deleted tweets and locked his profile.

I was shocked that call wasn’t overturned.

Clear blocking foul there.

One thing to miss calls in live action but to go back, watch several replays in slow motion and still fuck up? Unacceptable

Live action I was with him on the charge, but on replay it was clear he had set and then slid over to block Curry
