The first photos of the replacement referees are out… and it's clear that the contract negotiations are a front for unleashing an army of killer clones onto an unsuspecting population. Can you tell clone #158 apart from #129? I can't.
No one can… except for David Stern in his evil lair, evilly stroking his evil cat and plotting an evil plan to take over the world.
"MOOOORE calls for Kobe. MOOOOORE calls for LeBron. The frustration will bend everyone's will to a breaking point…. and then they will all FOLLOW MEEEE!!!!!"
On a related note… absinthe might not have been the best choice of sweetener for my morning coffee.
The fact is the first preseason game was played last night with replacement refs and it was, predictably, uneventful. So this is me turning a few pictures of similar-looking guys and a non-story into something that just robbed you of 5 minutes of your life.
On the plus side…
…… ahhhhhhh…. I got nothing to finish that sentence.
