Fire Rodney Mott

Rodney Mott has been a thorn in the NBA's side for far too long as a ref. He's had multiple occasions where he lets his emotions get the best of him like the instance back in 2007 when he got suspended. And now another instance yesterday November 19th 2017 where he threw out both Coach Malone and Nikola Jokic in the 2nd quarter. You can justify throwing out Malone for stepping onto the court trying to fight for a foul to be called. You cannot justify throwing Jokic out when all he did was argue about no foul being called. With terrible decisions like those, you take away a team's chance to win a game. Where 1 game is all it takes to take them out of a playoff spot by the end of the regular season. Let the teams play fair and call what is justified to be called. Don't allow refs to control the game. This is what ruins NBA ratings where it feels like games are being fixed. Another instance was when the Wizards faced off against the Trailblazers March 11 2017. Markieff Morris made a shot at the buzzer to beat the Trailblazers 124-123 in overtime. There was clear evidence that he stepped out of bounds as he shot the ball which means the ball was dead as he shot it. Rodney Mott was the lead ref that night and even admitted after the game that Markieff Morris did step out of bounds. Rodney Morris is just one example of bad refs that make NBA games look fixed and for fans to stop watching. I hope you fix this situation NBA. I hate when games are won by refs, and ruin any team's potential to go to the playoffs.
