    I think they need to make some crucial changes with regards to NBA officials because they are wrong in most cases , which leads to fines , suspensions , and losing a basketball game. Something should be done especially if a call is blatant to the viewers.

    Actually I think it has improved a little bit when they implemented the instant replay, but its still bad. When the players do make a mistake, break the rules, get suspended, etc, the media glorifies it and its news. I think officials should be held to the same standard, stat's should be kept, bad calls publicized, and suspensions if the bad calls persisted.

    I would say that it varies from game to game.

    Not at all.  They admit that superstars get calls.  That is an admission that they referee players differently.  They give some players leeway while others get T's at the first dirty look.

    This doesn't mean that they are doing this intentionally.  Refs are people.  But they don't ref the game fairly.  They have favorites and their favorites get breaks.
