After many years of uncontrolled domination, the golden state warriors have finally found a worthy rival: Marat Kogut. He was a hot topic among Warriors stars after Friday's 131-130 overtime loss to Minnesota Timberwolves. Steph Curry said Kogut was "MVP tonight." Kevin Durant called him "the best player on the floor." This Kogut guy sounds pretty good! Let's see how he looks like in action.
Oooooooh. He is a judge. I understand it. The warriors were sarcastic.
Kogut recorded Golden State's last seconds of overtime on Friday when it looked as if Durant was pampered as he hit a game-binding 3-pointer. Kogut blew his whistle but the officer declared it a non-shot bride and did not let Durant attempt a 4-point game. Bad call or not, the warriors still had a chance to tie the game, and Curry grabbed the opportunity with an absurdly difficult 3-point from the corner. Afterwards, he and Durant happily pointed at Kogut's face in a rare moment when the player on the referee pulled out.
The game was almost over with 0.5 seconds left, but the officials named Durant for an error on the following inlets plays and sent Karl-Anthony Towns to the line for victory.
The warriors' main feature Steve Kerr was unprecedented when asked about the last mistake. "You mean when the lobe went 10 feet above the rim?" He said after the game.
Under the pressure of scrum, Durant wrote the possible fines he would incur to complain about the judges. "I want to keep my money because they gave me two bullshit techs. Lemme just has to stop talking about the officer," he said before continuing to talk about the officer.
With LeBron James lacking the players, a new superstar has come to give Warriors the fit. "Marat is his name?" Durant asked journalists. "He is one of the greatest judges."
