We still encourage you to "Like" and "Follow" our Facebook page to get these posts as soon as they come in and to participate in the many excellent discussions we share with other members and referees nationwide.  We also have a YouTube channel in development and our founder, Chris Balasinski, maintains a Instagram account that is not solely about officiating, but offers a glimpse into the private life of our busy assignor. 

Kevin Durant Ejected; Steve Kerr's Got Jokes

December 2, 2017

The call was right — Kevin Durant "starfished" but never had control of the ball after the dribble in order to put up a shot — and the ejection was easy. The line of the night came at the post-game interviews...


Kerr was asked what Durant said to get tossed.


"He said the bad word," Kerr replied. "The magic word. I told [official] Scott Foster, 'I call you that all the time and you never kick me out.' He said, 'But I am one.'"
