Referee Joe Crawford Halts Nikola Mirotic’s Free Throw Attempt

by Adam Smith

Veteran NBA referee Joey Crawford is under the mistaken impression he is the biggest star of every game he officiates. His over-the-top theatrics and made-for-television antics have long been loathed by serious and casual basketball fans alike. That being said, he is pretty damn entertaining.

Here he is stopping a Nikola Mirotic free-throw attempt with the intensity rarely seen by human eyes. What a showman. He must have gotten four–maybe five–inches of air there. Maybe next year we can get him the dunk contest on a special six-foot rim. Just think of the ratings.
