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.

Allen Iverson argues with the referees and so do the Kings http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/allen-iverson-complains-to-the-referees http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/allen-iverson-complains-to-the-referees Allen Iverson argues with the referees and so do the Kings

A lot of people remember Robert Horry's buzzer beating shot in game 4 of the Western Conference Finals in the 2002 NBA Playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers were trailing by as much as 24 points in the first half and the Sacramento Kings were looking to get a commanding 3-1 lead heading back to game 5 in Sacramento. The Kings did not play a great second half and all game long they were frustrated with the officials. In the first clip of this video NBA referee Danny Crawford calls a bump on Lawrence Thunderburke that sends Robert Horry out of bounce into the Kings bench. Coach Rick Adelman felt it was a flop however Danny Crawford does not agree as he explains that call to the Sacramento Kings coach and guard Bobby Jackson. This was just one of many calls in the game frustrating the Kings. The Lakers ended up winning 100-99 on a memorable shot and game 5 in Sacramento had a great finish as well.

On November 26, 2003, the Detroit Pistons would face the 76ers in Philadelphia in a close game. This is where the second clip was taken from. An important quote from convicted NBA referee Tim Donaghy's book "Personal Foul":

"Allen Iverson provides a good example of a player who generated strong reaction, both positive and negative, within the corps of NBA referees. For instance, veteran referee Steve Javie hated Allen Iverson and was loathe [sic] to give him a favorable call."

Steve Javie was refereeing this game and the clip clearly shows Allen Iverson's frustrations with Javie. Despite Iverson's battle with the referees the Sixers ended up winning the game 90-86.

A funny clip is the "Whack, get out" clip with NBA referee Ron Garretson who tossed Rasheed Wallace in game 1 of the Western Conference in the 2000 NBA Playoffs. Find more about this game in this video.

Another NBA referee that the 76ers had some battles with is Bennett Salvatore. The last clip shows Salvatore trying to straighten things out with Allen Iverson and head coach Larry Brown but Brown does not want to listen to Salvatore and winds up getting a technical foul.

NBA referee Joey Crawford with money in his pocket http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referees-wired-with-joey-crawford http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referees-wired-with-joey-crawford Joey Crawford discussing with Tim Duncan

This video was originally broadcasted as part of the halftime show in game 1 of the first round matchup between the Sacramento Kings and the Dallas Mavericks in the 2004 NBA Playoffs.

The Sacramento Kings ended up winning the game against the Dallas Mavericks 116-105 in Arco Arena shooting 53% from the field. The Kings roster featured serbian player Vlade Divac who was also featured in this video. Angry - apparantly - about his bad defense, he decides to spike the ball and winds up getting a technical foul called by NBA referee Bennett Salvatore. Divac complains to Salvatore who explains that if the had not come down he would not have called the technical foul. They end up smiling about the entire thing during halftime.

Another question that will probably never be answered is why NBA referee Joey Crawford has money in his pocket while officiating an NBA game? And why does he buy a beer to a woman's husband who is really just a spectator of the game?
Joey Crawford also has a discussion with Tim Duncan. Just a few laters Joey Crawford ejected Tim Duncan for laughing on the bench. Joey Crawford was suspended for refereeing the remaining games of that season, including the entire 2007 NBA Playoffs.

NBA referee Dick Bavetta is seen talking to both Houston Rockets guard Steve Francis and Detroit Pistons power forward Rasheed Wallace, as he tries to stay neutral. Rasheed Wallace is known as quite the talker but Dick Bavetta seems to have an answer for everything.

NBA Referee Bob Delaney tells Grant Hill of the Orlando Magic that he is wired and that the last time he was wired people went to jail. That is of course a reference to Bob Delaney's previous job as an undercover officer with the New Jersey State Police.
