The Utah Jazz lost a game to the Miami Heat 102-100. Rudy Gobert was called for a foul on Dwayne Wade when the score was tired with only 3.2 seconds left.
Wade went on to nail both free throws.
.After the game, Gobert had some tough words about the refereeing of the game.
Per Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune, Rudy Gobert insisted that the referees did not call the game consistently, saying:
“I just want it to be consistent at one point. Every night is the same s—. Every night has been the same s—. If you call something one way, you’ve got to call it the other way. Once they start doing that, I’m going to have a little more respect. I’m just tired of it. Every game is the same. Donovan got pushed harder right before and he’s not Dwyane Wade, it’s fine, but just respect us as competitors, as players. I sacrifice everything to do this job. I’d like to be respected as a basketball player.”
Gobert is one of the many players to voice their frustration over the past couple of years. Will the referees change? Or will players just have to adapt to it?
