Draymond Green's mother, Mary Babers-Green, laid into the referees on Twitter throughout Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals, even going as far as to claim that they were "officially paid."
As last night's contest got increasingly chippy, the referees called more and more fouls, and even doled out seven technical fouls, as well as one flagrant foul on Kevin Love. After calling out the refs for losing control of the game, Mary retweeted someone who said Game 4 was "absolutely rigged for money."
An interesting claim for Mary to co-sign considering Steph Curry's wife Ayesha took that same stance last year. While Draymond's mom may believe that the refs were determined to do all they could make the series go back to Golden State, the Warriors were the ones who held the slight edge in free attempts, 36-31. The refs also made a last-minute correction after Green was slapped with what was believed to be a second technical foul.
Either way, Mary isn't too upset about the Cavaliers coming away with the Game 4 win.
However, if the Cavs can pull out another victory in Oracle Arena, she may end up changing her tune about the refs getting paid.
