NBA referees are speaking out against the last two minute report (L2M), calling it “pointless” on Friday.
Citing a LeBron James drive and shot that was determined to have two missed calls, referees argued that L2M reports “unnecessarily, and incorrectly in some cases, amplify an arbitrary moment in a game.”
Created to increase transparency, the L2M reports have made referees feel like they’re being targeted.
Our own internal disagreement about whether each play was a foul highlights something else – the way the #L2M reports unnecessarily, and incorrectly in some cases, amplify an arbitrary moment in a game. We agree with this, on the L2M being "pointless": https://t.co/rTIuDjBeFy
