NBA's best and worst referees

NBA's best and worst referees

Postby mo' betta blue on Sat Dec 13, 2003 2:31 pm

I pondered this topic long before last night's Lakers vs. Mavs game. Now, it's a good time to bring up this topic.
The majority of referees are fair, professional, and excellent in what they do, whether they are in NFL, NBA, and NHL. A referee's job is to oversee a clean game and enforce the rules. Some referees are infamous for making bad calls at crucial times. I read one article that says NBA referee Bernie Fryar tend to be influenced by the home crowd. His calls tend to favor the home team.
In your opinion, name the best and worst NBA referees. Give a short description of an incident involving a referee.

Dick Bevetta is a good ref. He always keeps the players in line while being fair and without resorting to technicals. (cough, cough Javie).

It's funny bevetta's first name got censored. D-i-c-k Bevetta is a cool and calm referee. I also like Jess Kersey. Both these old guys are some of the better ones out there. They stay calm when facing hostile players and fans. To be a good referee, you gotta have integrity and be level headed. A referee should let the players decide the outcome of a game.
