Judge Retires Due to Controversy Over SNS That Made Beverly Camera Hold

Judge Retires

Referee Eric Lewis, who was investigated over the controversy over the use of household accounts on SNS, decided to retire.

The NBA secretariat announced on its official SNS on the morning of the 31st (Korea Standard Time) that referee Lewis will retire.

NBA referee Eric Lewis informed the league office that he was retiring, the secretariat said. “According to his decision, the NBA’s investigation into social media activities was terminated.”

Referee Lewis was criticized for using the family account “Blair Cuttliffe” on X (formerly Twitter), one of the social media, to defend his decision and reputation as a referee. There is a rule in the NBA that referees cannot publicly comment on referees and judgments except when they are specially approved. Currently, the account has been deleted.

Lewis, who spent 19 seasons as an NBA referee alone, was one of the most acclaimed referees in the league. He was named the referee of the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. His career included nearly 1,200 regular season and playoff appearances as a referee in nearly 1,200 NBA games.(1,098 regular season games, 82 playoff games)

Lewis’ last game as an NBA referee was on May 17 when the Denver Nuggets played against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals 토토추천

Meanwhile, NBA player Patrick Beverly talked about the game against the Boston Celtics on January 29 for the Los Angeles Lakers when it was announced that an investigation into referee Lewis would begin.

At that time, LeBron James attempted a layup to score the final goal with a record performance, but Jason Tatum hit his wrist to block the shot attempt. But referee Lewis didn’t call it a foul and Beverly had received a technical foul through a ceremony to visit him with a camera before going into overtime
