I always want to keep coming back to the NBA, but every time that I come back, I realize why I hate the NBA. The officiating.
The officials always seem to favor the team in the lead and the team that is favored. And they always seem to swallow their whistles when the game is on-the-line and the non-favored team is trailing. They just can't get any calls, even though they might be mugged going to the hoop.
Until the NBA improves the consistency of their officiating, I won't watch and a lot of people won't watch.
No wonder their ratings are hurting.
