|Heinsohn on D&C: Howard getting away with flagrants||05.27.10 at 2:39 pm ET|
Comcast Celtics analyst Tommy Heinsohn joined Dennis & Callahan Thursday morning to give his take on the officials from Wednesday night’s Game 5 loss and why Dwight Howard should be suspended.
“I was up at the [Comcast] studios at Burlington and was in the conference room watching [Game 5],” Heinsohn said. “There were several people and we kind of all were hit with the same thought that these [referees] are incompetent.”
Heinsohn also touched on the similarities and differences in Rajon Rondo and Hall of Famer Bob Cousy’s game.
