NFT: Pretty good officiating in the NBA too

Anyone see this gem from last night?

Durant was clearly in-bounds.

that was really bizarre. Someone had a theory that the other refs figured a foul was going to be called but wasn't, and stopped looking at the rest of the play. But you can see ref 73 looking at the play the entire time.
If the game was reffed by 1 ref, that would be inexcusable.

With 3, it's truly inexplicable. Makes you think they reinstated Tim Donaghy.

What! Look at provision 3.45.1 -

"Any player must have 5 feet out of bounds and stumbling towards the bench before being declared out of bounds"

He clearly only had 4 feet out of bounds....
I saw this...

Reminded of the call a few years ago with Todd Helton playing first for the Rockies.

He was receiving a throw on a routine ground ball and was literally three feet off the ball when he caught it. And the umpire Tim Welke inexplicably called the runner out.

It was equally as absurd at this play with Durant.
Personally, I think only 2-footed players should be allowed

to be on the court.

Am I too biased?

fine for his criticism of the refs should be used to invest in better optometrists for officials
