Queen LeTravel

How come no one in the media has mentioned the egregiously terrible foul call on Etan Thomas when LeBron landed on his foot and sprained his ankle? I have to figure out how to get the video off of my DVR and onto the Internet, because it's completely ridiculous. It goes like this: LeBron shoots, lands on Etan's foot and falls over. The basket goes in, the Wizards retrieve the ball and inbound it. The referee watches the inbounds and turns to move up court when he spots a writhing LeBron James on the floor. He then blows his whistle and calls a foul because hey, it's not like LeBron has ever gone down without contact before. I think David Stern needs to start spreading around the suspensions because Joey Crawford is not the only referee who's out of control.

At least he didn't travel his way to the game-winner this time, so I guess that's an improvement.
