Referees have been known to turn a blind eye to some minor infractions from LeBron James throughout his clear. Well, that seemed to be the case Wednesday when LeBron wasn't whistled after a clear carrying violation against the Utah Jazz. During the third quarter of the game, a mic near the rim picked up some of James' conversation with someone over by the baseline, and it appears that he was discussing the missed call.
It sounds like James called the lack of a whistle "one of the worst I've ever gotten away with," after apparently seeing footage of the violation during halftime. Prior to watching the clip, it seems as if James wasn't even aware he had committed the now-viral carry.
The league is no stranger to James getting superstar treatment, but NBA fans were furious after the blatant missed call.
It's understandable to miss a questionable call or two, but this was straight up outrageous, and even James seems to acknowledge that.
