The Jay Graves Report

It’s a shame that NBA officials can’t do their job even with darn instant replay! “Really bruh?”

It took the silly “Last Two Minute Report” issued by the NBA to tell a boy that they’d missed the very call that everybody and their baby’s momma knew was incorrect on Christmas Day. On Tuesday the NBA announced in the report that they had, in fact, missed three calls down the stretch of the Cavs versus Golden State game. They admitted that they missed two fouls committed by Kevin Durant on LeBron in the last 30 seconds of the game and one LeBron made on Draymond Green with 33 seconds left.

What blew my mind on the KD missed call on LeBron with 24.5 seconds left was the fact that duns reviewed the play to determine who the ball went out of bounds on and still missed the foul. They determined that it went out of bounds on LeBron and gave Golden State the rock which pretty much ended the game.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! What’s the point of reviewin’ the play if you’re not goin’ to review the entire play. Just because they didn’t call the foul initially doesn’t mean that a foul wasn’t committed. It was clear that KD fouled ole boy because he had to come across LeBron’s body in order to knock the ball out of his hands.

It was impossible to get to the ball without makin’ contact with him. Therefore, the out of bounds on LeBron shouldn’t have even been on the table for discussion. And yes, I know that the rule states that if they didn’t call a foul initially they can’t review it but what’s the point in reviewin’ the play if you’re not goin’ to get the call right? It’s stupid.

A day after the fact the NBA rules that KD’s contact affected LeBron’s speed, quickness, balance, rhythm” that affected his driving shot attempt. Really bruh? And you couldn’t see that with the naked eye or on the review which allows you to rewind the joint several times? Really? Change the darn rule and allow the refs to call the foul if missed. That way the league doesn’t have to tell boyz after the fact that they missed the call.

What also blew my mind is KD bein’ caught on camera durin’ the broadcast sayin’  “He’s too big. He’s too big for that. He’s too big. That ain’t no foul.” So because he’s big you can hack him and it shouldn’t be called a foul? Really bruh? So what’s the weight limit on full body fouls? Next time just hit the dun in the jaw on his way up.

I’m glad that this was a regular season game and not a playoff game i.e. the Finals. They can make those types of mistakes now but durin’ the Finals that can’t happen. You don’t want the NBA Championship determined by some bogus officiatin’ regardless of who wins. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
