Veteran referee Billy Kennedy clearly didn’t know he had a hot mic… which makes this all the better. Just let it serve as another reminder that television rules everything. EVERYTHING.

Seconds after Kennedy said this the broadcast went to a commercial, but not until Mike Breen has a good “you’re not fooling anybody” moment on air.

What happened is get one 20-second timeout a half and Mike D’Antoni used his in the third quarter. Apparently he called a second one but then was assessed a full timeout.

The broadcast had treated this as a 20 and not a full and apparently didn’t get in enough or was a little behind on commercials to be shown.

Kennedy knows television rules everything and tries to subtly stall and explain it to D’Antoni and Gregg Popovich. Except it’s not all that subtle now.

A Letter To The Man Who Broke My Heart: I Came Out On Top

I’ve had two magnificent loves in my life. I felt as if love was the very liquid flowing through my veins: heart-racing, endless-butterflies, flushed-face, cheeks-hurt-from-smiling-so-much, couldn’t-wait-to-spend-every-waking-moment-with-him type sh*t. You can probably guess where this is going. Neither one worked out, but the second one left me guessing whether I could ever recover from all the […]
