Bad calls, yes, quite often there are some debatable calls made during crucial times that may decide games.
Rigged, well that's a big call, isn't it...
If we look at the competition right now, it has never been better, or more open for quite some time.
When we look at the whole of the NBA, not just officials, maybe there is a hint of evening out going on.
Maybe there is a slight tampering with draft pick, player transfers, coaching and yes, officiating, that when combined could lead one to a perception of the NBA being rigged!
But we can say this about almost any top flight competition, can't we.....?
Do we want the NBA to end up like the EPL, I mean how boring is it to watch Manchester United win every year and get all the money, the best players and ref's calls???
I think perception is worse than the reality, or at least I hope it is...
