    Default The National Basketball Association is a joke

    According to Bryan Colangelo during a interview with Bob Mccown today, NBA officials will not issue an apology to the team as they deemed the call to be a correct non-call not that it means anything but woow these fools are gutless

    When Casey said his peace, no apology would be forthcoming. They would look even more foolish with a 3rd apology and then fining Casey to boot.

    If no fine for Casey comes, consider that an apology.

    Meh, at some point the NBA has to stop issuing apologies or risk actually having to do something about it.

    something has to be done with regards to reviewable plays that potentially can cost teams wins. Im sure its been vented by others but I cant remember the NBA ever apologizing soo much

    Yep. Agree on everything...though I don't know if they will forego the fine on Casey. They may not fine him because it wasn't vulgar or anything. But they are weird, and I can see them doing it so that coaches don't start feeling like they can shit on the officiating in the media whenever the call was bad.

    I wonder if that competition committee that BC is on pushed the apologizing, because maybe they want the former to come in some form. Having all these mistakes be public makes it harder to prevent some kind of change. It's tough to know what that could be though. Something has to be done...

    I think they should do it by penalizing refs, much like they penalize players for flopping. Fine them, or suspend them for a game or something. At the very least, it might make them blow their whistle just to be able to review it and make the right call. Some flexibility will need to be added to change their calls. Usually you can only review what you blew your whistle for. So if it was a deflection, you can only check for possession, but if the guy was fouled, you can't change the call to accommodate that. THey'd have to allow for that to happen from now on.
