Even if you’re one of the best players in NBA history, referee calls don’t always go your way. And if your argument with a ref doesn’t work out, all you really need to do is dance on out of there.
On Friday night, LeBron James thought he had been fouled in the act of shooting during the Cleveland Cavaliers’ matchup with the Washington Wizards. However, a ref disagreed, stating that LeBron was actually throwing a lob to teammate Timofey Mozgov. When he instructed the Cavs to take the ball out on the sideline, James protested and did his best to state his case. The ref wouldn’t budge, so LeBron simply boogied on out of the conversation in style.
LeBron has invented the absolute best way to go about arguing with a ref. Even if the ref was thinking about giving him a technical foul, the sudden dance moves would diffuse the situation and even force a smile. You can’t T someone up if you’re smiling. That’s just the rule.
