None of this surprises me. Not in the least. I've always stated that most refs are either crooked or incompetent. This just makes the case. It probably won't get much traction however as the avg. Joe (not Dumars) who has many personal flaws is typically only willing to believe the word of a person that they personally perceive to have no personal flaws. The NBA knows this and will launch an all out Palace of Auburn Hills style assault on his character. ....did I win for have the most versions of the word 'person?'
