    The NBA policy of coming out after a game and listing all the wrong calls is really strange. I understand it's supposed to provide some sort of transparency, but all it ever does it feed into the ongoing controversy after a close game.

    PRO's POTW is a better way of educating fans (their recent weirdness on DOGSO notwithstanding).

    As a fan, I like the NBA's way of doing it...as I ref, I like PRO's.

    I have to agree. What does the NBA approach actually accomplish? They don't replay the game because of the errors.

    Interestingly the NBA would have replayed game 6 of the 2013 Finals has the Spurs ended up winning. Tim Duncan was incorrectly allowed to substitute into the game with 5.2 seconds remaining. So replay-the-game-level offenses do happen but it's rare.

    Like soccer, the difference is between misapplication of rules/laws versus error of judgment. And like high level soccer refs, the NBA guys very rarely have misapplication of rules.

    It draws attention, which in the entertainment business translates into money.
    usaref repped this.
