NBA Ref admits he’s stalling for a TV commercial

Well this is awkward.  NBA ref Billy Kennedy called over Mark D’Antoni and Gregg Popovich in the Los Angeles Lakers-San Antonio Spurs game to tell him that TV thought the Lakers called a 20-second timeout when they had really called a full-timeout.  This led to Kennedy saying that he was meeting with them to stall for TV, but little did he know they were already back and this had been caught on camera.  This does nothing but further prove the notion that sports are ultimately ruled by television.
