NBA referee Eric Lewis has retired following an investigation into whether he used a Twitter account named “blair cuttliff” to defend himself and other officials from online criticism. The league announced his retirement and closed the investigation. Lewis was not chosen as one of the referees for this year’s NBA Finals as a result of the investigation. The social media controversy began in May when deleted tweets from the “blair cuttliff” account were brought to light. Lewis had worked over 1,200 games in his 19 seasons as an NBA referee.
