NBA referees have not been getting a good rep the last few years letting guys get away with obvious travels, calling petty fouls and other nonsense. They certainly didn’t help their case in the Oklahoma City Thunder-Milwaukee Bucks game on Friday night in the Bucks’ 97-95 win over OKC. They missed an obvious out of bounds call on Giannis Antetokounmpo as he drove baseline to throw down the game-winning dunk.
And here’s the slo-mo version so you can see how clearly his foot is out of bounds:
You can clearly see that about his half is out of bounds and you could argue that he traveled on the drive to the hoop too. Granted, it was an awesome dunk over Russell Westbrook, but it probably should have never happened and the game should have gone to overtime on that three-pointer by Westbrook on the play before.
