I decided to take last year off. After listening to stories from my friends all season, I can't wait to get back on the court.

Don't assume that when a travel is not called in an NBA game that it should not have been called. It's difficult to pick up a travel in the NBA because officials are busy looking for contact.

That's because 25 years ago they didn't have 30 cameras to zoom in on an official's mistake, and they didn't play in on Sportscenter 35 times each hour.

NBA officials make 7-10 mistakes a game. ...

I agree with your first comment about the number of no-calls. It's ridiculous. Just because a player unwisely gets trapped doesn't mean that he deserves to get fouled without a call. Defenders are...

I am a no nothing rookie, but here is my perspective.

A. The foul is on the defense unless he jumps vertically or has an obvious advantage.

B. No call.

A1 ends his dribble by picking up the ball. He starts a baseball pass to A2 but stops himself in the wind up, causing the ball to go 10 feet straight up in the air. He catches the ball without...

People complain about a late call until the ball gets put in play again.

People complain about an obvious missed call until the next game starts three days later.

The Golden Rule states:

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Not:

"Do unto others as they do unto you."

This rule is one of the most misunderstood.

Good ball players are well aware of the count. As a ref, you've never had a player look your direction to see if you had a count?
