2012 NBA Finals: Joey Crawford Controversy

NBA referee Joey Crawford once again becomes the focal point after Game 3 of the 2012 NBA Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat.

Crawford made a couple of controversial calls in the Heat’s favor that went against OKC’s superstar Kevin Durant. Controversy is no stranger to the NBA or Joey Crawford. There’s a reason why he’s usually trending on twitter after he refs in big games.

I’m not going to go as far to say that Joey Crawford has an agenda, and is fixing these games. I’m also not one of the extremists that believe the NBA is rigged. But as long as Crawford out there refereeing in big games, and making bad anticipation calls… people will continue to speculate.
