LeBron rants about refs after Durant foul fiasco

LeBron James knows everyone makes mistakes. It just frustrates him when they don't own up to them.

Tuesday's last-two-minute report determined that officials missed multiple fouls late in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 99-92 Christmas Day loss to the Golden State Warriors - one against James and three on Kevin Durant.

James isn't dwelling on the blown calls, which all but put the game out of reach for his side. Instead, he vented about refs who refuse to admit their mistakes.

"For me, the worst thing is when I actually go and talk to the ref and they say, 'It was nothing,' Like I go over, 'You didn't see that?' 'Nah, I didn't think it was anything. There's no call, there's no foul.' That's the worst, for me," James told reporters Wednesday.

"If he says, 'I missed that one, or maybe I wasn't in the right position,' (that's fine). But when you see the ref right there on the baseline looking at the whole play, and you go up to him and he says there's no call multiple times in crunch time. That's the frustrating part. And for me, it's even more frustrating because I know how I'm officiated at times."

James also said he thinks officials should be able to retroactively assess a foul that wasn't initially called during replay review.

He and the Cavs return to action Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings.
