Joey Crawford conspiracy

Don’t you love when a conspiracy is debunked, many of the LeBron haters been constantly hinting that LeBron fixes the games and that the NBA is behind it. All thanks to the referees, since most fans only know one name, they all try to use him for their memes. And that’s the birth of the Joey Crawford Conspiracy. Let’s face it, when LeBron loses, the haters are waaay to busy to remember who was the referee. But when he wins, oh boy, every single piece of the game is used to disqualify LeBron’s legacy.

However don’t you love when someone actually go into the numbers and tries to pull out the true stats? Well someone did in this case and the results couldn’t be more opposite to the myth.

Contrary to popular belief, James was winning percentage dropped by a pretty solid margin (from .669 to .521) in games in which Crawford was an official. Though it’s an admittedly small sample size, I would have to say that any notion of Crawford being biased towards James would have to be thrown out the window.

Stats of LBJ winning percentage on games where Joey Crawford officiate. Complete Opposite.

So in the end, memes such as Joey using LBJ team jersey as the 6th player on the floor. Or LeBron kneeling before Joey should be shoved with this stat.

In the end is no surprise that haters gonna hate. But at least we could make their hate more legitimate.
