Scott Foster's beef with Chris Paul is personal -- and the NBA has to intervene

Golden State Warriors guard Chris Paul shed some light into his longtime feud with NBA official Scott Foster on Wednesday after the referee ejected him from the game against the Phoenix Suns in what became the latest episode of their ongoing beef.

Paul, 38, claimed the issues started when he played for the Los Angeles Clippers and revealed the reason was over his son. The veteran guard did not elaborate on the particular details of the moment, but admitted the NBA already tried to intervene.

Foster, 56, met with Paul, his dad, former Clippers head coach Doc Rivers and ex-referee Bob Delaney several years ago to find common ground.

The meeting evidently did not work and the numbers suggest Foster has become obsessed with hurting Paul's career.

Since 2007, Paul's teams have a 3-17 record in the postseason when Foster officiates, and are 73-56 in the playoffs with other referees.

Scott Foster has a dark past

Foster ejected Paul after back-to-back technical fouls for arguing about a foul. CP3 then called the ref a "bi--h" and repeated "he's talking about my son" several times.

It's time for the NBA to step in and plan the schedule for Paul to avoid Foster at all costs, especially considering his dark past.

Foster received 134 calls from disgraced referee Tim Donaghy between October 2006 and April 2007, when he was betting on games or providing gamblers with information.

Donaghy called Foster more times than the 126 calls made to his bookie, suggesting they could have been working together, though no further evidence has been found.
