If you’re somewhere around sports, you probably heard some of the worst from the fans. Like referees, for example.
What we have here is Marc Davis, a zebra who heard from a loud heckler during a stoppage in Tuesday’s Rockets win over the Thunder and came up with a pretty great response while keeping his cool. Did he have this one planned? If not, well played:

“I actually have my doctorate in reffing.” Perfect, isn’t it? What do you say to that? That’s a perfect shutdown response.
Just for fun, Charles Curtis of USA Today looked around to see if Davis – an official for the last 17 NBA seasons – had some kind of Ph.D. He’s actually in the Chicago Public League Hall of Fame, which is something.
Couple that and his NBA and CBA experience, and that should be enought to call the guy Dr. Marc Davis, especially after he taught us all a lesson in how to handle a heckler.
