What do you believe NBA officials normally do during TV timeouts? Get a drink? Take a rest on the bench? Discuss the game with the other officials? Defend their calls to players and coaches in the game?

Of course they don’t!

They do the worm.

NBA TV, which showed the broadcast of the game between the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Lakers caught a referee doing the worm during a break in the action Tuesday night.

As if the Lakers-Wizards game wasn’t exciting enough! Between Wizards’ point guard John Wall’s 31 points, nine assists, six rebounds and three steals, Wizards’ center Nene Hilario’s 30 points and five boards, Wizards’ swingman Martell Webster’s 20 points and nine rebounds, the  Lakers having seven of the nine players they played score in double figures (only power forward Shawne Williams, who had two points and small forward Xavier Henry, who had eight points, didn’t score in double figures) and the referee doing the worm, this was one excellent pick for NBA TV’s fan night.
