Angry Rant: NBA Officials Need To Be Held Accountable!

I am not sure how much longer I can take watching the NBA playoffs.

Not because of the games, which have been great, especially these Conference Finals. These past few games have been absolutely amazing.

One thing stands out about these games and shouldn’t ever (and I do mean ever).

The officials are horrendous!  They seem to be getting worse and worse every year.

You think with the ref scandal, David Stern would do everything in his power to fix this situation. He hasn’t though, and it appears that he hasn’t done anything to rectify the situation. He’s more concerned with how to destroy his fan base by moving a great and upcoming team from Seattle and sticking it in a place that 98 percent of Americans can’t find on a map.

He puts the officials above the game and they take advantage of it. They think we want to see them or want to watch them bail superstars out.

Where is the accountability?!

I am writing this after watching LeBron James allegedly getting hit in the head by Hedo Turkoglu. After watching the replay in slow motion, you could tell that Hedo swung at the ball and missed, and missed LeBron’s head by over six inches.

Not to mention all the little touch-fouls that have been going on throughout this current Orlando-Cleveland game.

I would continue to write more on this article, but I really want to open it for discussion from the rest of the NBA fans here on Bleacher Report and see what you think.

Also if I continued I’d just be way too much swearing about Joey Crawford, Scott Foster (I want him dead), Steve Javie, and Dick Bavetta.
