No matter what referees do, one side always hates them. That is unless one of them conducts a personal dunk contest during a break.
Recently, to the delight of players and fans alike, an official did just that. With the intent audience looking on, he tossed the ball in the air and sent it home with a thunderous windmill jam.
Bleacher Report's cut revealed a second slam:
Perhaps he was once a young baller who later developed a respect for referees the way a student would for a teacher before becoming an educator.
Let's hope the players—who went especially wild over the unexpected jams—gave him some leeway on questionable calls.
