The NBA is reportedly investigating a Twitter account that may have belonged to NBA referee Eric Lewis.
The account primarily responded to tweets involving Lewis, prompting the investigation, NBA reporter Marc Stein said.
When the account was discovered, it had no followers and just followed five other accounts: The NBA, three other referee accounts, and George Mason’s women’s basketball account.
Lewis’s wife, Vanessa Blair-Lewis, is the team’s head coach.
