Smith blasts ‘terrible’ PBA referees

TNT import Joshua Smith went straight to the point and lambasted the referees on the heels of his squad’s 111-102 Game 5 loss to San Miguel in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals on Friday.

“PBA officials are terrible,” he said, obviously pissed off with how the game ended.

Smith felt slighted with the way the game was officiated, calling out referees Noy Guevarra, Rey Yante, and Mao Orioste, “terrible.”

When pressed to elaborate on his statement, the hulking reinforcement repeated the same words thrice before reporters decided to abruptly end the interview.

Sources close to the situation shared that Smith’s frustration is from what he felt were a lot of non-calls against him, which paved way for Beermen to come back from a 15-point halftime hole and eventually take the 3-2 series lead.

Not helping was the 32 fouls whistled on the KaTropa, which led to 38 free throw attempts for San Miguel.
