I'll never forget the face of the kid who was 6'6" at 13 after I actually "Said it to his face" when I was a pudgy 5' middle schooler. It's the attitude I bring to all the bullies I meet on the court...

Oh man, I-495 and 395 are parking lots from 7AM-9AM and 3PM-7PM. And the metro? If it isn't on fire, they've shut down lines for service. Next year from May-September (read December), they are...

To be perfectly honest, getting mad at AAU refs is like screaming at the sun in Arizona during August: You knew what this was when you signed up. You're getting underpaid and overworked refs who are...

Brah, that's almost exactly what the average camp is. There's just no difference between "students" and "candidates", cause if a student is good enough to work, he gets hired.

I think it's more of a "If it ain't broke..." situation. The commissioners don't care as long as the coaches don't cry about the officials. How the assignors pick the officials isn't their problem.

My true goal is to one day become a conference supervisor. So I can make the real money. I would say that I'd be different, but that temptation sounds too strong to ignore.

Buddy of mine runs AAU tournaments. He used that website once, never again he says. Got a bunch of refs who had no idea what they were doing, or were lazy and let the games hit the fan.

Damn, that's pretty good for a minor league. I was thinking they were treated like the cats in the MiLB. The best guys there top out at $3900 a month during the season.

Will people accept being only a minor-league referee? Will the G-League pay enough to keep people from going to the NCAA? Hell, what does a G-League ref make now? Is it per game or is it salary?

The quarters are coming. More commercial time to sell means higher revenue. I like halves, but it ain't the end of the world. Same with fouls resetting every quarter and the bonus at the 5th foul.
