    I havent posted in a while, and in spite of the Refs playing the birdbox challenge with Durant, what a big time shot by the Beard...

    That being said, why the heck was the ref so close to James on that game winner. Harden made a shot with Draymond, Klay and the bogus ref in his grill. That is so sketchy...

    If someone with computer skills can upload the image...appreciate it.

    Nah he's just trying to get into position to make the call. His eyes are on the ball the whole time.

    Wow. What the hell was that official doing???

    He was literally shadowing Harden to his right like he was in on the trap LOL

    TBH, it didn’t look intentional... but that’s hard to say with a straight face considering the KD out of bounds play on the previous possession.

    He's pretty clearly not close to Harden in the replay from the top of the basket.

    Yet somehow he still missed the fact that Green fouled him.

    Did the official influence the shot? No...but with him clearly attempting to get in position to obtain the best view possible, he MISSES the obvious foul on the shot. That's the troubling part for me.

    Reggie is right- he was fouled.

    What I get from watching this again is that Draymond Green doesn't know when it's time to shut the f$#k up. Dude is still yapping after allowing a game-winning shot.

    lol that did look odd, but I'm guessing he was just trying to get in position to be able to see the other side (James' right side), because there is a baseline ref with the front look, and a sideline coach on the opposite side watching Harden's left side.

    eehhh... this post is real extra. lol
    You can bitch about the no calls on the snake or the no call on Harden's And 1 game winning shot..
    If you really watch the replay, from one of the angle the ref was a good 5 feet away from Harden and was mainly looking at the ball or trying so far to make a call that he failed to give the and 1 to harden. smh.

    Exactly! That is the first thing that came to my mind, after I was left speechless with the brilliance of the shot.

    That's why he missed the foul on the follow through.

    That would literally be perfect if Gerald wasn't in between them. Or if he was also staring down Donkey.

    Refs actively tried to win the game for GSW last night. Not an overreaction. Incredibly one sided down the stretch, highlighted by Durant being at least 3 steps out of bounds with 2 refs choosing to ignore it.

    Can't tell me that it was "just a missed call". Two refs were there watching the same obvious play.

    What’s even better is that Just a few plus earlier Donkey blocked a shot and acted like they had just won the championship with his celebration. Little did he know he’d be sitting on his arse a few plays later :D

    yeah what i liked about that was rivers laughed it off instead of getting into his face and all. This would of caused a stoppage of play with some type of exchange. He played on. then rivers hit that big 3 later and talked his own ishhhhh.
