Dating back to the rivalry between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks in the early 2000s, we find NBA refereesDanny Crawford and Joey Crawford talking to the different players. At first, Danny Crawford explains to Kings guard Mike Bibby and Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki how to pivot on pick'n'rolls. Next up, Mavs guard/forward Michael Finley complains of a clean ball situation he thought was a foul, however the only one who fouled him was actually himself. in the next clip Michael Finley tells referee Joey Crawford that he has read the NBA rule book. Joey Crawford kind of admits that Finley is right.
"Whack! Get out!" That's what NBA referee Ron Garretson said to Portland Trail Blazers forward Rasheed Wallace when he ejected him during a timeout in game 1 of the Western Conference Finals in the 2000 NBA Playoffs. Rasheed Wallace had already gotten one technical called by Ron Garretson and the referees tried to protect Rasheed by calling a delay of game call to avoid his second technical foul. Rasheed Wallace was very frustrated and chose to stare down referee Ron Garretson, causing his ejection.
This ejection has become subject to many debates around the internet.
