Here is a good reason to HATE some of the NBA officials. I always complain about the shoddiness of certain NBA refs, and you will now get a dose of why I am so outraged. It is high time that many of these officials realize that this game is not about them, its not about their egos, and that people do not watch games to see their ugly faces.



By the way, I do agree with the commentator. Tim Duncan is by far not my favorite player in the league, although he is a great player. Is pretty mild mannered in general.



Now the rules state that an official can call a technical pretty much at any time during the game, and that any behavior detrimental to the game or any OVERT actions indicating resentment to a call. However, in the video I saw above, it really was very difficult to tell what Tim Duncan was truly laughing at. Maybe he was laughing because his teammate got called for a foul and that teammate knows better than that or something. However the official NBA Rules do say "Assessment of a technical foul shall be avoided whenever and wherever possible; but, when necessary they are to be assessed without delay or procrastination."

Oh and allegedly this crumby ref, Joey Crawford (Not to be confused with Dan Crawford who is also an official) said to Tim Duncan more than once "Do you want to fight?" That is absolutely unsportsmanly conduct and I hope he gets fired faster than Imus after making racist comments.
