Any referee must see the whole thing with impartiality, without any vested interest and must maintain that unbiased judgement all throughout the prescribed time in the determination of results. A lot must be in different fence or ideologies when it comes to the recent debacles the referees were in for the NBA current season games but this time it involves the superstars in their own will… from Carmelo Anthony to Kevin Durant. Some labeled it as nasty while for the others they’ve opined it as just and deserving. Whilst we forgot that the 11th, 12th and 13th man on the floor presence were duly recognized by both teams and the fans were all but there to witness the game.
Some have expressed their disappointment through their social media accounts, given their status in the league as role models and risking the multi million dollar endorsement contract they have. Then this meant real issue they got to face if they want the fans to stay in those pricey bleachers aight…
The fans are there to witness high intense and close game as possible as they can and when the assigned arbiter take things into their hands the outcome not only displeases the fans but the main act themselves.. the players.
For the meantime, congratulations to the new UAAP Season 80 Basketball champion the Ateneo De Manila University Blue Eagles who dethroned the De La Salle University Green Archers in the final score of 88 – 86, where both teams have high respect to the officiating all throughout the game. Nice game.
Go by the rules no more no less. – Paquito
