National Basketball Association admits refs missed Kevin Durant's late fouls on LeBron James

"But, whatever. What are you going to do about it?"

The report also indicated Durant had fouled LeBron with 1:12 remaining for body-to-body contact that had gone unwhistled.

Durant, according to the league, fouled James twice but was incorrectly not called for a violation, James complaining in vain each time he was fouled. He's too big. He's too big for that.

However, the Cleveland Cavaliers star forward thinks Kevin Durant may be the best defensive small forward, which he said following the Christmas Day game against the Warriors. "He got me a little bit, but I lost that one". What about the call that was missed in the third quarter? No foul.' That's the worst for me. "James (CLE) clamps the arm and jersey of Green (GSW) and affects his ability to retrieve the rebound." reads the report indicating that there should have been a loose ball foul on James. And now, they are one game up on the Houston Rockets for first place out west. "I try to impact the game as much as I can on both ends of the floor". That's not transparency. If anything it's putting the official on the spot that missed the call.

And King James is still tight about those blown calls, so much so that he held court and aired out National Basketball Association refs during the Cavs' shootaround Wednesday, essentially asking them to put some damn respek on his name.

While the NBA's last two minute reports for close games might help fuel debates among fans, Draymond Green doesn't see the objective.

This time, Kevin Durant and the Dubs benefitted from radio silence among referees.

This is a different version of Durant who has molded himself into an elite scorer and defender-the player he had to be to finally compete for King James' throne.

It's all just more heat for an already raging fire burning between the Cavs and Warriors.
