Refs should've been fined for that display. Apologies if this was already posted, couldn't find it...

What a joke

I hope he keeps calling them out. They were horrendous and he is targeted at every turn. Itís ridiculous that you canít criticise refs just because theyíre refs. How are they supposed to improve? Granted theyíre starting from such a level of ineptitude that improvement is almost unforseeable, but itís still ridiculous

If this is how he wants to spend his money, he's welcome to it. 

In reality, he's targeted because he picks fights in nearly every game.  I like his temper and his toughness, but he's in the crosshairs for a valid reason IMO.

It becomes invalid when they start giving preemptive techs when they think he might start a fight

We should be calling out the refs for letting Giannis travel every time he makes a move.

The NBA needs to issue challenges to the coaches.

If a coach wants to question a poor call, it's then reviewed on film by an independent source. Unfortunately, it will slow the game down.

Of all the major sports, the NBA has the worst officiating and it's getting worse and worse every year.

I think Morris gets a bit of a short leash with the refs.  I know he is physical and barks, but I have also seen him on multiple occasions just turn around and walk away to avoid being involved in stuff.  I don't think he is any worse than drew Bledsoe who is constantly trying to be a fake tuff guy and seems to get away with it a lot.
