It is time to get mad at NBA referees. Just like the last time this happened, and the time before that, and all the times to come. If we get mad, something will happen. It hasn’t yet, but it will. We just have to get really, really mad at NBA referees and let them know how mad we are with well-reasoned arguments on social media.
Kris Dunn appeared to get fouled while shooting a game-tying attempt with 8 seconds left in this contest against the Trailblazers. The whistles remained silent. Are the refs blind? That is a serious question. I would not be surprised if they were totally bereft of sight. Running around the court in their tooty-fruity striped shirts, flailing their arms and tooting their whistles at random intervals. That is the true state of NBA refereeing.
