The first three clips of this videos dates back to the 2000 NBA Finals, when Reggie Miller's Indiana Pacers made the NBA Finals for the first time. Former Boston Celtics player Larry Bird was the head coach of this Pacers team and as he asks NBA referee Joey Crawford about a call during a timeout, Lakers head coach Phil Jackson comes over and interrupts on purpose, so that Bird does not get an advantage talking to the referees. Both NBA head coaches gets a technical foul and Phil Jackson agrees on the call.

 

In the same 2000 NBA Finals Indiana Pacers point guard and Los Angeles Lakers point guard Ron Harper also get a double technical foul for jawing a little bit. Marc Jackson is frustrated about the call but NBA referee Hugh Evans explains why he was also called for a technical foul and Marc Jackson seems to understand the call.

In the final clip NBA referee Joey Crawford calls on technical foul on New Jersey Nets forward Richard Jefferson. Nets head coach Byron Scott - who had just taken a Nets team to the NBA Finals or the second straight season - complains to Joey Crawford, who tries to calm him down. A little bit later a smiling San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich approahes Crawford, saying that he didn't believe that Crawford was sincere when he called the technical. They both agree on that and end up laughing.

NBA referees call flagrant fouls on Lakers and Mavericks http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referees-call-flagrant-fouls http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/nba-referees-call-flagrant-fouls NBA referees call flagrant fouls on Lakers and Mavericks

In a hard-fought series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Utah Jazz in the 2001 NBA Playoffs, there was a lot of hard contact as we see Mavs center Shawn Bradley make a hard foul on Utah Jazz forward Karl Malone. The foul was called as a flagrant by NBA referee Danny Crawford and the clip shows Crawford talking to his officiating crew about being extra precausious about the physical play. The series ended as it close as it could when the Dallas Mavericks won the deciding game 5 by 84-83 and advanced to the second round.

Allen Iverson keeps jawing with the NBA referees and once again it is Steve Javie who is talking to the 76ers guard. They end the discussion but never really come to an agreement about how the game should be called. The clip dates back to the 2001 NBA Finals when the 76ers made the final cut.

The next clip shows Shaquille O'Neal commit a flagrant foul on the Phoenix Suns' Rodney Rodgers. LA Lakers guard Ron Harper protests against the call but NBA referee Danny Crawford explains to Ron Harper and Kobe Bryant that the contact after the whistle was blown was a flagrant foul.

Dating back to the good old Kings vs. Lakers rivalry we once again find Ron Harper arguing a call - this time with NBA referee Ron Garretson. They both joke back and fourth but end up just smiling and laughing about the entire sequence.

NBA player Michael Jordan wired talking to an NBA referee http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/michael-jordan-discussing-with-nba-referee http://nba-referees-wired.com/videos/michael-jordan-discussing-with-nba-referee NBA player Michael Jordan wired talking to an NBA referee

Remember Jason Williams aka White Chocolate? He was drafted by the Sacramento Kings back in the 1999 NBA Draft. He joined a struggeling team that had just picked up Vlade Divac and traded Mitch Richmond for Chris Webber. That was the beginning of a new era in Sacramento. Jason Williams was known to be a flashy basketball player - sometimes even too flashy. In this clip Jason Willams is trying to be flashy but comes up short and believes that he was fouled. NBA referee Ron Garretson tells Jason Williams that the contact is too minor and that he already was past the defense.

Even in All Star Games there are key matchups as we listen in on NBA referee Danny Crawford telling his officiating crew that the matchup between Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and Toronto Raptors forward Tracy McGrady is intense.

A very funny clip is Washington Wizards shooting guard Michael Jordan telling NBA referee Tommy Nunez that he believed that 76ers guard Aaron McKie had double dribbled. Nunez did not see two hands on the ball but he believes the former Chicago Bulls player Michael Jordan. A funny note is that this was both Tommy Nunez's and Michael Jordan's last NBA game. The Washington Wizards ended the 2002-03 NBA season 37-45 as Michael Jordan scored 15 points, had 4 assists and 4 rebounds in his final NBA game.

Also, listen in as Ray Allen believes the NBA referees are mocking his teammate Sam Cassell.
