Cuban paying off the Refs?


Well the Spurs lost a somewhat meaningless game today against the Mavs but every Spurs fan is talking about Duncan getting ejected because “Josefina” Crawford got too sensitive when Duncan was laughing while on the bench.
What pisses me off is that “Josefina” was focused on Tim that I question whether he was even concentrating on his job. The worse ejection of an NBA player in quite sometime.
According to Tim Duncan . . . “He looked at me and said, `Do you want to fight? Do you want to fight?”‘ Duncan said. “If he wants to fight, we can fight. I don’t have any problem with him, but we can do it if he wants to. I have no reason why in the middle of a game he would yell at me, `Do you want to fight?”‘
If this is true, then an NBA ref threatened an NBA player and “Josefina’s” threat of bodily harm to Duncan need to be addressed by the league. There cannot be a double standard, if a player spoke similar words he would be suspended for numerous games.
So let me understand this, a player can’t laugh on the bench? What is this fucking Nazi-ism in the NBA? Don’t celebrate too much because the SS aka the NBA refs will throw you out! Watch what you do on the bench because the Gestapo aka the NBA refs will throw you out!
Sure Tim will be fined but I sure hope made those parting words for “Josefina” worth it. And what is it with refs in Spurs vs. Mavs games? Horrible calls in last years match-up in the playoffs and now this?
Is Cuban paying off refs? Spurs fans have to wonder. The fouls called in the fourth were horrible. And what about the “new” foul created today by Josh Howard…run into Oberto with full force and Oberto gets called for the foul? Let’s not forget, “Josefina” did give Duncan a technical foul in the past Pacers game in Indiana. In the words of GOB Bluth from Arrested Development…COME ON!
Granted the Spurs did screw themselves in the crunch, shooting terrible FG% and coughing up the ball too many times, but the Mavs have to think that they gave it their all and still it went down to the last seconds to pull out the win. . . WITHOUT DUNCAN! I am sure hoping that Tim will use this in the playoffs.
To whichever NBA team the Spurs play in the playoffs, beware, “Josefina” Crawford may have caused Tim Duncan to go nuclear on your ass.
