    I’m sure there are times this season when NBA players have wanted to whack a referee upside the head with the basketball. After all, the refs have done some pretty bizarre stuff. One guy used his foot to keep the ball inbounds for a Miami Heat player; another guy did a goofy dance just to […]

    Maybe Mark Cuban is right after all. I always thought the Mavericks owner was just a hotheaded loudmouth spouting ridiculous conspiracy theories about how refs fix NBA games for certain teams.

    Referees have tough jobs. They have to be experts on the rulebooks and make difficult, on-the-spot decisions and interpretations. And what do they get for their efforts?
