Steve Javie pops-in broadcast to remind viewers referees’ perfect streak of correct calls continues

Fans were outraged again when former NBA referee, Steve Javie, interrupted the final moments of the Grizzlies/76ers game to remind the audience that the perfect streak of correct calls from referees continues.

As usual, the ESPN crew summoned Javie to speak after a controversial call. 

“Ok, take a look at Memphis guard, Dillon Brooks,” Javie commented over the slow-motion replay.  “After beginning to heave a three-pointer, he realizes he doesn’t know how to shoot those.  So, like a pro, he begins to panic and looks for someone to kick.  Smart. But there aren’t any 76ers near, so he draws the foul by kicking a concession worker.  A good call, as you can clearly see popcorn fly everywhere.”

At this point, Jeff Van Gundy challenged Javie’s reasoning.

“But how can it be a foul on Philadelphia?  It was Brooks who scissor-kicked that arena worker, who has yet to regain consciousness, I might add.”   

“Because everyone knows the last mistake NBA referees made was a lane violation in the spring of 1979.  Plus, didn’t you see all the popcorn?” Javie snapped.

Unfortunately for the viewers, Van Gundy and Javie bickered on screen for quite a while resulting in everyone missing the final three minutes and overtime of the thrilling game.
