Petitioning David Stern and the NBA

Conduct an audit of NBA referees using an independent, mutual agency.

Professional sports should be a model to people watching everywhere of the importance of teamwork and integrity. Instead, David Stern commissions a league that panders incessantly to superstars, as a means of assuring that their teams be victorious. Last night, Lebron James shot 24 free throws, while the entire Celtics roster shot a total of 29. Only one player on the Heat had more than 3 fouls, while 3 players on the Celtics fouled out of the game. Rajon Rondo was hit across his head by Dwyane Wade right in front of a referee at a critical junction of the game, and no foul was called. Players and coaches are fined if they speak negatively about referees. Luckily, fans still have a voice, and Stern and the league need to hear it. This type of officiating should be unacceptable, and David Stern should be held accountable.
