Nba Officials

Is anyone else annoyed when they see NBA officials with highly theatric calls? When you see them HOP dayum near to midcourt to announce a block or charge or offensive foul. To me, the officials should be impartial and unemotional so when they do this it tells me that they are either pandering to the crowd or challenging the crowd.

I find myself saying, just make the call man. Stop showboating. NOBODY is here to see you. Some of these guys strut like they are the lead specimen at a dog show. It feels like they are Frank Drebin in Naked Gun when he was a baseball ump calling strikes. lol

I think what has pissed me off the most...

...I've watched one team benefit from ####### officiating in EVERY game, and not once have to deal with it from the other side. The Warriors...

I also feel like the Hawks have had to deal with a lot of bs (not as much as anyone playing GS, but still)

It's sickening seeing a foul committed that is literally a player being breathed on while shooting. Then on the other end of the floor only seconds later, someone being hacked to the ground, missing a shot, no call. Other team gets it and nails a 3 pointer.

5 point swing in a matter of 30 seconds. This kind of crap easily happens 5-10 times a game... That's 25-50 points that may not or even should not have been.

It's horrid to see.

I just had a convo with a former basketball ref, not NBA, but he said they switch responsibilities on opposite sides of the court and when they do, each ref is more than likely looking for something different. That explains some of the split personality calls.

That is the dumbest thing I've heard...

...at least get on the same page.
