NBA announces Game 7 referees... no, not Joey Crawford. Relax.

LeBron James, Scott Foster

Weren’t all of us a little concerned that Joey Crawford would get the call — then try to steal the spotlight — in Game 7 between the Pacers and Heat? This has the potential to be epic and that had the potential to be an epic disaster.

Well, breathe a sigh of relief, he’s not on the list.

Your referees for Game 7 are Scott Foster, Mike Callahan and Ken Mauer, the league announced.

Foster is interesting — he probably has the quickest technical trigger in the league. Actually, not probably, he has the quickest trigger. Remember he gave the Pacers a ridiculous double-technical earlier in this series. He ejected Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson last series.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come down to something ridiculous like that.
