All-Star point guard Chris Paul's technical came with 10:17 left in the third quarter when he tried to get the inbounds pass quickly but instead was T'd up after questioning Lauren Holtkamp, who became the third woman to referee NBA games full time this season. "I think we have to show better composure, but at the same time some of [the technical fouls] were ridiculous," Paul said. "The tech that I get right there was ridiculous. I don't care what nobody says, I don't care what she says; that's terrible. There's no way that can be a tech. We try to get the ball out fast every time down the court, and when we did that, she said, 'Uh-uh.' I said, 'Why, uh-uh?' And she gave me a tech. "That's ridiculous. If that's the case, this might not be for her." ESPN.com

Basketball was our common ground—something we could talk about that didn’t drain him like his other daily conversations could. Basketball modified the tenor of our interactions and took us from boss and underling to something more like friends. It began with that back-and-forth during the 2007 NBA playoffs. Who was going to be right? The debate went on for years. After Paul, a Los Angeles Clippers guard, won the All-Star Game MVP in 2013, Obama reluctantly conceded, though Parker’s collection of four championship rings with the San Antonio Spurs may make the president’s case for him a little better than mine for Paul. When we started playing basketball on the campaign, Obama’s directive was straightforward: No one takes it easy on me. So we didn’t. We all played full-on, no mercy. This worked great until, after the 2008 election, the president took an elbow from another player that resulted in him getting more than a dozen stitches in the lip. Wall Street Journal
