But John Wall, the referee? There may not be a more entertaining official in the history of the game.
The Wizards, the Washington Mystics and the Harlem Globetrotters teamed up Tuesday in D.C. to once again make the annual Unified Game a huge success.
While he normally spends his time on the court balling out, Wall donned the zebra stripes once again for this event. As the videos show, the three-time NBA All-Star had some fun on the job.
Judging by the pictures, everyone had a good time:
