Le costume d’arbitre de Trey Murphy III pour Halloween suscite un débat parmi les fans de la NBA

New Orleans Pelicans forward recovering from left knee surgery

Trey Murphy III is recovering from left knee surgery and will not play for the New Orleans Pelicans in the coming weeks. Still, the forward made his presence felt by dressing up as a referee for Halloween.

Murphy’s costume drew giggles, especially when he poked fun at Bally’s Sports’ game commentators. It also drew hilarious reactions from NBA fans on Twitter, with many joking that he’s « finally a good referee in the league. »

Murphy’s getup came at a good time, as NBA officiating will be in the spotlight this season following the league’s investigation into Eric Lewis. Lewis was accused of using a burner account to make statements in favor of the referees. He eventually retired, leading the NBA to end the investigation.

Murphy is expected to play a bigger, more prominent role for the Pelicans this season. He averaged 14.5 points per game last year, nearly 10 points per game higher than his rookie season. He also set career highs in rebounds, assists, caps, steals, field goal percentage and three-point field goal percentage.

The Pelicans exercised Murphy’s player option for the 2024-25 season, where he will earn $5.1 million. Murphy was impressive last year and the Pelicans will likely keep him.

Murphy’s two-way impact last season was very valuable. He was also durable, playing in 62 and 79 games the past two years. With Zion Williamson missing most of last season, Murphy started 65 of those games. He also filled in for Brandon Ingram from time to time when « BI » was sidelined.
