This could be Dick’s swan song, but hopefully not before he forces yet another shady Game 7: “Veteran NBA referee Dick Bavetta, working the Magic-Thunder game, told the Sentinel he might retire after the end of the season. The personable 69-year-old Bavetta and his wife live on 450 acres in Ocala. He is in his 32nd season as an NBA ref.”
