LeBron James says he gets the most frustrated with referees when they refuse to acknowledge a blown foul call.

Two days later from Sacramento, LeBron revealed that he spoke to the official, who responded, “It was nothing.”
Here’s LeBron’s full comment:
“I think for me the worst thing is when I actually go to talk to the ref and they say, ‘It was nothing.’
“Like I go over, You didn’t see that? ‘No I didn’t think it was anything. It was no call. It was no foul.’ That’s the worst for me.” […]
“When you see a ref right there on the baseline looking at the whole play and you go up to him and he says there’s no call multiple times in the crunch time? That’s the frustrating part.
“And for me it’s even more frustrating because I know how I’m officiated at times.”
