On a day, where Adam Silver made basketball proud
around the world, Joey Crawford made what possibly
could be the worst decision that any Ref has made on
a Basketball court.
When a player is about to take the second of two foul
shots and is in some kind of rhythm, you don't then decide
to go to the scorers bench and ask them to change
a stat in the scoreboard.
Perhaps he could be forgiven if he walked calmly and
got them to correct the issue, but no Joey yelled and
screamed and waved his arms like a madman.
It wasn't even the score that was being corrected or the clock
but a minor stat.
To me this was like in cricket when a spectator runs on
to the field and a batsmen breaks his concentration and
goes out next ball.
You could see Durant was going to miss after this, Joey
Crawford cost The Thunder the game, make no mistake.
Not only should Crawford miss the rest of the playoffs,
but this has to end his career.
It was a selfish, self centered bonehead move by him and a
bonehead move about the way he went about it.
I'm guessing he will be off Kevin Durant's xmas card list.
Here's hoping the Thunder will come back and win game
Time will tell.
Hats off to Adam Silver who did the right thing, and
won universal praise for giving a life ban to the racist
81year old Donald Sterling told his girlfriend not
to bring black people to his LA Clippers games
along with some other disgusting comments.
LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, will now
not only lose his franchise, but is fined over
two million dollars and cannot attend another
NBA game in his life.
Players in the NBA, the media, and fans all
over the world have applauded NBA commissioner
for his bravery and for his willingness to take a stand
He has shown himself to be a leader, and the
NBA has shown itself to be a competition that
will not stand for any racism by it's owners or
people involved in the game.
A great day for Basketball and the NBA.
Well done to the sport.

Words Fail me.
Telecom's new ad, titled "Giganaire" must
be one step away from Blackface.
It features a lot of white guys with gold Jewelry
rapping around a pool. They say its Parody, but
it's out and out racist.
Is this what Telecom New Zealand, thinks the
average African American is like?
How could one of New Zealand's biggest companies
stoop so low.
