LeBron James complains about referees in NCAA title game

New, comments

Like the rest of us, LeBron James is not happy with officiating in the National Championship.

NCAA Basketball: Final Four Championship Game-Gonzaga vs North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James, like most of us, is tuned into the National Championship game between North Carolina and Gonzaga, and like the rest of us, he’s pretty frustrated with the active whistle from the referees.

LeBron’s got a point. The refs have called a ton of touch fouls in this one and inconsistent officiating is just an unfortunate byproduct of NCAA basketball. It’s an unbelievably hard game to officiate, and refs are going to err on the side of caution.

That said, when key players are picking up huge fouls on plays like this, it’s a problem.

The Cavaliers were off on Monday, but LeBron will be back to yelling at slightly more qualified NBA officials tomorrow against the Magic (as long as he doesn’t get the night off for rest.)
