Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki gets frustrated and throws an elbow at Sacramento Kings forward Vlade Divac. NBA referee Steve Javie sees this but decides to give Nowitzki a break on the play as long as it does not repeat.
Dallas Mavericks head coach Don Nelson complains to Steve Javie about what he thinks is an illegal timeout, but Javie has a different opinion.

Next up, Scottie Pippen gets ejected by Bennett Salvatore after a defensive three second call. Rasheed Wallace actually shows a calm side of himself as he is trying to get an explanation from Salvatore. The crowd at the Rose Garden in Portland throws teddy bears on to the court because of the call made and Rasheed Wallace laughs while telling Salvatore that he is actually trying to protect him.

Bennett Salvatore also refs a game in Philadelphia and the short clips clearly shows that the 76ers players are not happy about his way of officiating. Kenny Thomas' reaction to a call is just a big smile.

NBA referee Joey Crawford calls technical on Rasheed Wallace http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referee-calls-technical-on-rasheed-wallace http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referee-calls-technical-on-rasheed-wallace NBA referee Joey Crawford calls technical on Rasheed Wallace

Going back to one of the greatest playoff series in NBA history in the year 2000, the Portland Trail Blazers' veteran forward Steve Smith knows exactly how to frustrate a young Kobe Bryant. Even NBA referee Danny Crawford knows that and admits to it this video.

Following that, Allen Iverson gets frustrated with NBA referee Hugh Evans who the Sixers guard feel is missing a lot of fouls. In the next clip, NBA referee Joe Forte gets Iverson smiling by saying he has faith in him.

Going back to the intense rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers, Bennet Salvatore explains to Shaquille O'Neal, Robert Horry and Mike Dunleavy about a defensive three seconds call. Next up, NBA referee Joey Crawford calls a technical foul on Blazers forward Rasheed Wallace. Coach Mike Dunleavy does not like the call but Joey Crawford is very persistant.

Things start to get out of hand as an NBA fight between the Lakers and Blazers almost breaks out while NBA referee Dick Bavetta tries to sort things out.

NBA player Rasheed Wallace ejected for staring at NBA referee http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/rasheed-wallace-getting-ejected-for-staring http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/rasheed-wallace-getting-ejected-for-staring NBA player Rasheed Wallace ejected for staring at NBA referee

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.
