Video: Did Joey Crawford almost toss the Sixers’ mop boy?

Joey Crawford, Rob Mahoney

Leave it to Joey Crawford, the most infamous of active NBA officials, to turn a spilled drink into an episode.

In the third quarter of a game between the Sixers and Cavaliers last Friday, Crawford called for cleanup after a man sitting courtside spilled his drink on the sideline. Nothing undue about that, as the spill occurred in the exact spot at which Sixers forward Lavoy Allen was set to inbound the ball.

Apparently, though, the work of the mop boy on the scene was not to Crawford’s liking. After the spill got its once-over, Crawford blew his whistle and barked at the mop boy retreating to his post — seemingly demanding further cleanup via towel wipedown. Nothing wrong with erring on the side of caution, I suppose, though Crawford seals the ordeal in trademark fashion by appearing to stare down the boy with the mop from across the court.

All class, this guy.

Joey was right and should have tossed that lazy punk! I wonder what the towel boy said to the Sixers player when he turned his head.

Now Joey can be a horses arse but this is one of those rare times when he was correct to be a Richard Cranium!

Wouldn't surprise me if he knocks over drinks intentionally so he can make himself the center of attention.

What an egotistical big-headed arrogant man... Maybe the NBA needs to move beyond Micro Crawford.
