The NBA has no choice but to be as transparent as possible in determining whether key end of game players were officiated correctly due to “so many cameras focused on the action, with so many other kinds of services providing that same information to our fans or to the public,” says Adam Silver.
Silver said the refs still get it right a “vast majority of the time.”
“Roughly 90 percent — they get it right,” Silver said. “Now, of course, I’d like 90 percent to be 100 percent. And so would they. But what these reports also show, what fans already know is, human error is part of this game, and the best athletes in the world make mistakes. And coaches occasionally make mistakes. Officials do, too.”
