On my marathon subway ride home to Brooklyn, I received a push notification saying “LeBron James criticizes Two-Minute report”. Having absolutely no idea what that was and seeing LeBron’s name next to the word criticize, I was immediately lured in like a fucking bug to a bright light. The Two-Minute Report is a daily report that reviews the official’s calls (or lack thereof) in the final minutes of close games to ensure that they are making the correct calls. LeBron is completely correct in criticizing anyone who doesn’t like the work the NBA Officials have done — you NEVER bite the hands that feeds you. Ever. This is unbelievably self-aware of James to not only recognize it, but to speak out against it. Shocker, LeBron spoke out against Two-Minute report just two days after it came out that in his team’s Christmas Day win over Golden State, he and not Kevin Durant, should have been T’ed up by the officials, late in the game. Good for LeBron realizing he needs these guys to stay on his side in order to win these close games. I’m sure they all received some really nice gifts from Santa this year too.
LeBron Correctly Criticizes Those Critical of Officials
