Tom Thibodeau Fined $35K For Saying Bulls Won’t Get Any Calls

Chicago Bulls Annouce Tom Thibodeau as Head Coach

The refs can be terrible at times, but they aren’t the reason the Bulls are now down 2-1 to the Heat. They simply don’t have the manpower to compete with the Heat.

Thibodeau who is doing an outstanding job, lashed out at the refs.

Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has been fined $35,000 for his postgame comments regarding the officiating in Game 3 of the team’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat.

“I see how things are going, I watch very closely,” Thibodeau said after Game 3. “We’re not going to get calls, that’s reality.”

“From my angle, I saw a guy basically flop,” Thibodeau said of James. “I don’t think it warranted an ejection. I understand a flagrant foul, I understand that, but ejection, no, nope.”

LeBron did flop, but you can’t be pushing guys in the 2013 NBA and think you can get away it.  The refs are way too sensitive now, especially if you push a Superstar.

The Bulls are going to have to muster up whatever resolve they have for Game 4, to attempt to keep the series competitive.

  • The refs clearly missed three calls that went the Bulls way.
    1. The clear path foul on Nate Robinson against Lebron which was not called.
    2. Jimmy Bulter’s travel in the lane which turned into a three point play for Gibson.
    3. The blocking foul that fouled out Battier.

    I do not understood why the media does not ask Thibodeau if they should have gotten these calls.

    • Bruh,to be honest the officals kept the bulls in the game.That is why they got hit with so many techs.I was on ESPN comment section and i asked bulls fans to go to the PLAY BY PLAY and look at all the times miami was up by 2 points.Everytime miami was up the refes would call a shooting foul in favor of the bulls.It is more prevelant 4minutes of each QTER.I wonder why people dont do the research when they speak.I use to think the NBA was riggid too and i hate LBJ.Intill i did the research and i learned that basketball is about knowledge of the game (the officals can mis calls and you can still make shots).The officals can call fouls at the end of the day you still have to make shoots and get turnovers.

  • The Ref talk doesn’t add up when you’re getting wiped out. Just play the game.
