Man… Joey Crawford really loves the spotlight. You never know when or where he’s suddenly going to feel the need to be seen and heard in a game.
Last night was a doozy. With the Lakers and Pacers tied at 74, David West drove and ran straight into Chris Duhon. Joey Crawford saw it as a blocking foul… and boy did he let everyone know about it. He went from the baseline to beyond the 3 point line to sell the blocking call. It was a high stepping showcase worthy of a marching band showdown competition.
I guarantee you… if you’d asked me or any other regular observer of the NBA “did you see the ref that highstepped out to the 3-point line to make a foul call last night?”… I’ll bet you 100% of us would have asked “was it Joey Crawford?”
