Hours after the NBA released its Last Two Minute Report for the Lakers‘ 113-112 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, determining that Russell Westbrook was not fouled by Joel Embiid on Los Angeles’ final offensive possession, LeBron James took to Twitter to share his frustration with the league’s officiating.
Quote tweeting a fan’s assertion that the NBA has a “Huge Scandal” on its hands with the way games are being officiated because the league office is “altering their own definition of the rules,” James said the referees’ game management has been a recurring problem for his team this season.
“And all year they keep telling me to my face on the court, ‘I didn’t see it’ or ‘It wasn’t a foul,'” James wrote Monday afternoon. “It’s not making sense to me seriously! Frustrating as hell man!”
