    Money-wise, yes.
    Game-wise is another thing.
    It's all about money, marketing, self promotion.
    Very little is done as far as the integrity of the game is concerned.
    Silver's attempts to make the team more offense oriented results in all of these bs officiating.
    They rake in billions annually, yet they can't address the officiating.

    Also, your point about transparency and non bias shows the league's utter hypocrisy because they keep repeating the same errors which obviously favors the superstars and the big market teams.
    I don't know how multiple foul calls (many of them phantom or ticky tacky incidental contact) helps if the goal is more offense. It does more to kill momentum, slow the game and increase game times where most sports are trying to find ways to decrease.

    The NBA would be a far more fantastic game if they allowed more minor contact and regularly penalized flopping like they started to in the NHL. Give them unsportsmanlike fouls. Start with lebron .... and if you flop without even being touched, give them a one game suspension

    Yuri, I know this is a hectic unprecedented pace for the 2021 Raptors. 3 game threads in a row is uncharted territory. But it’s 6 hours to game time! 😉. Keep it rollin’
    Lucky game 13!

    There is a good point to this. It's so the NBA can be transparent and show that the refs are un-biased, meaning that that their incompetence is widespread, yet totally random. Not sure if anybody's gone back and looked at the data to verify that they are equal opportunity offenders.

    And changing the game to make it more accessible to the masses, started under Stern with MJ. Silver is just continuing that trend catering to marketing & entertainment. That strategy is working for them, money-wise.

    Tbh, I don't see any point why the NBA is doing this. It is utterly pointless if it's not altering the result anyway.
    Just another nonsense shallow marketing game by Adam Silver to appease the fans and the owners. To me, he is the worst commissioner ever.
    The officials aren't making any progress anyway, they keep making mistakes every game and nothing is done to improve their skills apparently.
    I seriously hate this spineless commissioner. He is ruining basketball.

    That's the same video I've watched over and over that doesn't show any angle to see the contact which could be incidental if any.

    From the camera angle under the basket, it looked like Stanley clipped Rozier's knee a bit. But SJ did a great job to quickly spin out of the way and pull his hands back to get the call. But that's people hate about the NBA, it's becoming worse than European football with the acting and shady reffing.
    The shady reffing is the worst thing about the NBA, I have lost count as to how many calls I've seen made by refs who weren't even remotely in positio to see what they called and camera reviews should it was a fly by with zero contact. The NBA has to tell them "it's one thing to miss a call you couldn't see but another thing entirely to make a call that never happened. But as long as it favours the top 10 players in the league, the NBA does more than condone it, it encourages it.

    It's even worse than the flopping, the hands up pleading for calls, the screaming if you're even touched like you've been shot and the constant "and 1!" yelling. It's become a puzzy league.

    Where's the contact? He seems to have evaded it
    https://official.nba.com/l2m/L2MRepo...eId=0022000191

    Johnson (TOR) jumps towards Rozier (CHA) and makes contact with his lower body during his shooting motion that affects his jump shot attempt.

    I have yet to see an angle that shows any contact at all, never mind enough to call a foul.
    And the pic they're using wasn't even from that play lol
