Kenyon Martin vs the Replacement Refs

His coach isn’t looking forward to the replacement refs either, but Kenyon is approaching the situation as though Armageddon were upon us: “It will be terrible. I believe guys will get more technicals. But that’s probably what [the NBA is] looking for, more money. There are going to be more ejections. Tempers are going to be even worse. Attitudes are going to be even worse … ‘It’s going to be pretty bad,’ Martin said of NBA games. ‘The replacement refs, there’s no way they’re used to the pace of the game.”‘

    Quotemonger: I will go buck if these replacement refs make a call on me. That will be my excuse for collecting technicals this season. The refs.

    i bet these new refs cater to the stars more than the old ones did

    Maybe if you don’t have a bad attitude they won’t call techs Kenyon…ever think of that? He’s acting like the normal refs are actually GOOD.

    Muzzle the dude already. Or lock him in a cage with Mark Cuban so he can get out all that anger and resentment…better yet, lock dude in a cage with Bulls rookie James Johnson so he can get knocked the phuck out already.

    LOL he might actually be an okay guy but I sort of think he’s just straight up dumb. Not dumb like Bryant Reeves dumb, but dumber than your average person.

    niQ’s quote about an african american “going buck” is racist. There’s no place for that here.

    Well, at least he’ll be smarter than the average bear.

    Is RacistsGoHome a parody or something? Really?

    Now it looks like LeBron and Kobe are going to get to the line about 20 times per game now. I wish we would get better refs that dont call every single touch foul. I miss it when teams could play agressive style of basketball. Thats why I sometimes like to watch High School and College over the NBA.

    I think the ref just need balance I didnt like it when they gave D Wade all those touch fouls in the finals but I dont want to see that wrestleball the knicks and the heat used to play either

    How about getting retired NBA ballers to officiate? They can’t call games involving teams they played for…I know, I know, dumb idea.

  • rikson

    It can only get beter….

    Even NBA refs (the current non-scrub ones) had to be rookies at some point. I’m sure it won’t be as bad as all that. Does the lockout of refs also reach down to D-League status? If not, they could use (and probably are) some of those guys.
