Chucky Atkins Gets Slammed by Ref, Video

Chucky Atkins Gets Slammed by Ref, Video. The poster child for NBA journeymen, Chucky Atkins, played for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 04-05 season. At some point during that season he had a decent game. This was so out of the ordinary that this ref, Ron Garretson, was prompted to say, “Don’t Take this the wrong way. I never knew you were that good. I mean that that good.“  Wow! It is a good thing that Chucky did not take this the wrong way. Chucky could have gotten his feelings hurt by Ron. :-)

  1. What in the world? That that that that that good . . .

  2. Backhanded compliments are soo awesome!

  3. It wasn't a backhanded compliment at all. The extra "that" made all of the difference.

    A translation:

    "I never knew you were that good, I mean that you were really (maybe add another really) good"

    Chucky never took it the wrong way either as he agreed that this was his big break.

  4. [...] conversation between a ref and Chucky Atkins captured on video. It’s worth the 13 seconds. [...]
