I thought it was funny as hell how Stu and joel mentioned that all three refs were only college refs at the time and this game had only been their 2nd official nba game reffed. One of the refs even was mentioned that he has another real full-time job but just refs at night for some extra money.
He said that 3rd ref has like a freaking office job, I couldn't believe it could come to using guys like that for NBA games. I think that was the one that gave Kobe the tech too, I was like go back to your office job stop trying to show up a star.
But man that was a great preseason game, one of the best I've seen, usually they aren't that entertaining. Kobe was playing like it was a real game, Bynum was on a mission, Farmar was going hard to the bucket, Shannon Brown had that nasty dunk, Pau was in top form already, Ron Ron looked like he belonged, great game.
