NBA referee Eric Lewis has announced his immediate retirement amid a league investigation into whether he defended himself and other referees on social media against online criticism. The league launched an investigation less than three months ago into whether the 19-year NBA referee violated league policy by publicly commenting on officiating without league authorization. Lewis, 52, has enforced the first four NBA Finals but was not selected as one of the 12 referees for this year’s Denver-Miami Finals following the investigation. In May, a pair of social media users sparked a social media controversy when they exposed some tweets that had been deleted.
The Twitter account, now known as X, used the name “blair cuttliff.” If the league confirms that the account is his, Lewis could be disciplined for violating its policy on unauthorized public discussion of officiating matters. Lewis officiated more than 1,200 games over 19 seasons, including the regular season and playoffs, and last officiated on May 16, when Denver hosted the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Reports of the tweets came about a week later.
