Reggie Jackson expressed his displeasure with the officiating after the Pistons' Game 4 loss and added that he thinks NBA refs should be held accountable like the players, that a system should be implemented wherein refs are fined, suspended and even fired for not doing their job well.
Gabrielle Union obviously reads DBB and that's the only way she could have seen Jackson's comments, which inspired her to tweet the following after a clearly controversial Game 4 of the Heat-Hornets series (I don't know, because I was too sad to watch):
Reggie Jackson was onto something...— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) April 26, 2016
She retweeted this:
Here's Lin not fouling Deng. pic.twitter.com/y3CZLoRyiZ— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) April 26, 2016
And then tweeted this:
Again... Reggie Jackson is onto something #FineEm— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) April 26, 2016
Can wives get fined? Asking for a friend... https://t.co/LwauSjLsyO— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) April 26, 2016
I'll give Union a pass for not realizing her hubby won an NBA championship thanks to excessive foul calls in his favor -- Wade was married to someone else then. (Brrrr, it's cold in here.)
If Jackson wasn't getting fined for his comments before (he was), he surely will now since Union has over three million followers and used Jackson's full name twice. Probably not how he ever envisioned her referencing him, if ever.
Now your off-the-wall offseason thoughts.
