If you want to know more about Lauren, that's a great place to start. I have no idea what Chris Paul said or didn't say. And I'm certainly not qualified to judge whether it was a good T or not. All I can say is she definitely belongs where she is and I'm happy for her. I've never met her but if I can be half the official she is, then I'm doing well.
I had the pleasure of working with her at camp last summer. She was phenomenal to work with! I'm glad to see she's doing well in her career because she's earned it.

I think's ridiculous to say that about any level. I'm tired of hearing officials need to get thicker skin rather than hearing that coaches and players need to behave like adults.

That rookie ref lost his schedule for the rest of the season, and was brought back the next season, "on probation". It was understood by the officials, and those of us who knew the background of the situation, that A) nobody comes to watch the refs, and B) nobody comes to watch the 11th or 12th player on the bench.
That's BS. The official is doing his job, and the league doesn't back him up? I get that the NBA is more entertainment than basketball, but this is low. Star or not, you should not be allowed to yell at an official and criticize his call. The official was right. How did he turn out in the end? Did the NBA fire him after his probationary period, or did he stay on and be successful? If I was a D1 assigner, I'd give this guy a job on the spot if the NBA fired him.

You apparently don't understand the job. That statement was not T-worthy at that level.

Agreed. Especially when you then talk about it in the present tense.

It's just like listening to the "Oldies" radio station.

Exactly. Stop. That's our official position. If something is thread-worthy now, start a new one.
