Tim Duncan Gets Ejected For Laughing?

Sunday, April 15, 2007


Tim Duncan had received a technical foul about 2 minutes earlier on an awful call, and now Joey Crawford seems to think he's being shown up. Crawford is notorious for making the game about himself, and this is a prime example of that.



The reactions from Duncan, Horry, and Parker are priceless. I also let the tape run a bit so you can see Oberto get called for another crappy foul while defending himself against what can only be described as a Josh Howard Ninja Attack.

UPDATE: Crawford Suspended Indefinitely (Awful Announcing)

At least Duncan made sure to earn it on the way to the locker room. If you're gonna get called for a BS technical, might as well get your money's worth.

So...a player can be standing still, feet set firmly on the floor, and when a defensive player runs into him it's a foul? Okay, just checking.

that is three minutes of the funniest officiating i've ever seen.

btw, i hope you guys do something on the three-hour infomercial for black people not watching/playing baseball in this era that was the Dodgers game tonight.

maybe black people don't play baseball for the same reason i don't. it's boring.

It's just as ridiculous on YouTube when I was watching it earlier.

Thanks for posting the video. I missed the game unfortunately. Just waiting till the playoffs now that the Celtics' draft position is locked up. My drunken rant on Joey Crawford has already been spilled at Deadspin so no need to repeat it here but this is the shit Joey Crawford has always done and is ridiculous. Why he keeps getting Eastern/Western Conference and NBA Finals games to ref is beyond me. His reputation far precedes him. His refusal to let anyone "offend" or "slight" him is absurd. Anyways, I rant none the less. Check this interview I just found with him for further proof of his absurdity and that he talks a decent game but hasn't changed at all: http://www.referee.com/more/Samples/non_subscribers0504/free_joecrawford.html
sorry bout the length.

Wow... that's really showing the NBA reffing at its worst (or at least I hope its at its worst). One of the worst technicals I've ever seen called, and then a crappy call on Oberto. That's ridiculous.

remember sonny - the c's draft position isn't locked up. only their probability of getting that position. one need look no further than the player featured in this entry to be reminded of that.

ok so according to the announcers you are not to laugh on the bench for fear that old senile joey will eject you?

skip bayliss once called tim duncan the most boring superstar in the history of sports on espn. i once called skip bayliss an asshat in my mind

Apr 16, 2007, 12:01:00 PM  

i often call skip bayless an asshat. are there people who like him? besides his family, including his family?

That was ridiculous. There's no crying in baseball -- and apparently no laughing in basketball!

Yeah, I'm aware just a mistype. I'll blame it on the booze. The Tim Duncan draft is truly the dark ages, not getting the number 1 pick, the franchise being destroyed by Pitino, etc. etc. How natural would it have been for the closest thing to Bill Russell the league has seen to be playing for the C's? oh well.

Crawford should be suspended. Players get suspended for far less than abuse of their position.

Joey Crawford is ridiculous, he's almost like the Lex Luthor of the NBA... Bald and envious of what the "supermen" can do on the court

The worst was the offensive foul on Oberto. I
guess letting Howard jump on you is a foul. The
announcer called it a sharp pick. What game is he watching?

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.

Levitra is a very effective power booster which enables men to retain his erection for long, and helps people suffering from ED in a great way. There are many reasons such as smoking, drug or alcohol abuse, particularly over a long period of time which degenerate the blood vessels of the penis, and cause impotence or ED. http://www.besthealthmed.com/levitra_about.html

Erectile dysfunction (ED) has become of the most common sexual problems and it affects more than 50% of all men over the age of 40 at some stage. And the older you get the more common it becomes. There are tons of causes of ED and it is approximated that 70% of Ed cases have physical roots, and 30% psychological causes, although often both physical and psychological reasons combine for the condition. http://www.levitrabliss.com/

The chances of contracting erectile dysfunction goes up substantially with age, increasing significantly above the age of sixty-five-which is rapidly approaching for the baby boomers. Although erectile dysfunction becomes more likely with advancing age, there is certainly no age cutoff for a sexually fulfilling life. Some men enjoy sexual activity even in their eighties and nineties. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com
