VIDEO: NBA referee tells coaches he's 'stalling for TV' before a commercial

This was unfortunate timing.

Allow me to take a trip inside ESPN announcer Dave Pasch's brain as the following conversation between referee Bill Kennedy and coaches Mike D'Antoni and Gregg Popovich played out.

"We get it, people. A game being on national TV means you guys have to see a lot of commercials. We don't need some referee rubbing it in all of our faces. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE PLAY-BY-PLAY ANNOUNCERS? NOBODY EVER THINKS OF US! ALL TWITTER DOES IS MAKE FUN OF US AND NOW WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS S*** FROM BILL KENNEDY?

Pasch showed great discretion in only saying "uh, we can hear you."
