NBA Players React To Awful Refs In NCAA Championship Game
As a fan of Michael Jordan, Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant (he would have went to UNC, not Duke, to be with former AAU teammate Vince), I was glad to see North Carolina find redemption by winning the 2017 NCAA Championship over Gonzaga on Monday. What I wasn’t happy to see was UNC win it by making just 15 percent of their threes and 58 percent of their free throws. And there was a lot of damn free throws in this game — 52 to be exact! Those 52 came off of 44 fouls from the group of refs (Michael Stephens, Verne Harris, Mike Eades and Terry Oglesby) that made us wish we were watching Lauren Holtkamp and three clones. They were so bad they were trending on social media and even had LeBron looking for someone to call and complain to.
Here’s a few of their biggest mistakes, followed by a bunch of angry tweets from NBA players and then a bunch of happy tweets from former UNC players, including Mr Vince Carter.
