The entire back wall of his locker is taken up by a large laminated poster with the names and faces of all of the NBAís referees this season. Itís full color, with first names bolded in capital letters below each officialís head shot, all of which are big enough and clear enough to be referenced (and perhaps remembered) at a glance. Carter-Williams laughed when I brought it up following his teamís first win in almost two months, a 123-98 victory over the Pistons which snapped a league-record 26-game losing streak. ďMy coaches put that up so Iíll learn the names of the refs and build a relationship with them,Ē he said. ďSo thatís why thatís up there.Ē Michael Carter-Williams is working to learn names of all NBA referees, has a poster in his locker to prove it | ProBasketballTalk
