Don’t expect Dick Bavetta to give you a hand up

Apr 10, 2014, 5:05 PM EDT

My favorite Vine out of Wednesday’s NBA games.

That would be referee Dick Bavetta — who I believe officiated his first game back when the referees had to climb ladders to get the ball out of the peach basket — refusing to help Zaza Pachulia up off the court.

Probably wise, I’m not sure Bavetta can generate enough leverage to really help.

Hat tip to Lang at NBA.com’s All Ball blog.

    Hmmm…I’ve seen Refs get knocked down. If Bavetta ever gets knocked down around Pachulia, it’ll be interesting to say the least.
