Not surprised that Joe Crawford is the crew chief...it is a game 7. I'd guess that Dan Crawford would be on the game as well if he hadn't had worked game 6 of this series.

I assume he would have been slated for game 7 of SA/OKC...

That's a pretty safe bet.

Foster with two excellent illegal screen calls on KG. And Jeff Van Gundy remains an idiot. "He's been doing that for 17 years." Yes, and I've seen it called on him for 17 years.

Anyone heard what's going on with Greg Willard? I knew he missed Game 6 and the alternate worked. But they haven't said why he was hospitalized.

Thoughts and prayers go out to him.

Those two illegal screens were pretty obvious. But then again, JVG has trouble with the most basic aspects of officiating.

Unfortunately, it is VERY serious. From what I learned, don't expect to see him officiate for a long time.

You mean serious as in this...?

If you're not going to tell us what you heard, why even post and raise more questions?

Thank mattmets.

Pancreatic cancer. What horrendous news. They don't say what stage it is but there is no cure. At the very least, I hope it's in the early stages so he has a chance to enjoy the time he has left.
