I've often heard that a good referee is invisible in a game and I've found that to be true. A very well officiated game is one in which you don't remember the calls or the refs afterwards. But that rarely describes a Joey Crawford officiated game. In the clip above, Joey is anything but invisible.
To set the scene, there was 1:15 remaining in the fourth quarter of the game between the Pacers and the Lakers at the Staples Center. The game was tied at 74. Crawford called the Lakers' Chris Duhon for a block on a drive by David West of the Pacers. I watched the play several times and as much as I hate the Lakers and love that they lost, it looked like he got the call wrong. But that didn't stop Joey from making a spectacle of himself and galloping across the court as he made the call.
And, when you consider that the Lakers lost this game by 2 points on a last second game winner by George Hill of the Pacers, this call is even bigger. I wonder if the league will do anything about Joey's showboating. Somehow I doubt it.

THIS JUST IN: NBA referee Joey Crawford feels left out when he doesn’t have the attention of 20,000 basketball fans. This is Crawford calling a blocking foul on Chris Duhon near the end of the Pacers-Lakers game Tuesday night. After the 13 hops, skips and jumps, it appears he forgot who the foul was on.

Angry Lakers fan @ArtemBoyajyan was not happy how Joey Crawford called last nights Lakers-Pacers game: ‘I hope Joey Crawford gets run over by a truck and then anally raped by a gorilla. F*CK YOU.’ There was very little sentiment for Crawford…especially after his douchy dance after he called a blocking foul on Lakers guard Chris Duhon (GIF below).
We all know how much of an...
Ok so this just happened. Lakers and Pacers tied at 74 with 1:15 left. Chris Duhon looks like he draws a charge on David West that will give possession back to LA. He had position. The home crowd wanted it. Jack Black wanted it. But one man decided that no - it was time to call a charge. And then it was time to dance.
Joey Crawford once again proving that he is the show people....
