These "reports" are useless. I keep waiting for a Coach to say "Alright, so are we replaying the last few seconds of the game after Oubre takes free throws and changing the record accordingly? Because if we aren't these reports are useless and don't change anything."


They don’t change anything but they encourage the official to make the correct call at the time. If they make the right call (even if it’s not the one they want to make) the leagues report will support them.

Even machines make mistakes. Refs are human and humans will be proned to making mistakes. Throughout the course of the season, how many times have the refs missed a critical call that could have resulted in a different outcome of a game? This definitely wasn't the first time and won't be the last.

People just need to DEAL WITH IT. Calls WILL be missed. It is part of the game. Forget the dumb challenges that unnecessarily prolong the game.

There's no insentive. The refs jobs aren't in jeopardy or anything. They miss calls, go "oops" and then make the money they bet on the game, and then the league goes 'our bad'.

if you want people to deal publicly name the ref who missed it, publicly give them, and release their report cards to the players

They act like talent, so treat them that way

Can’t because of their CBA.

That’s not a good answer, only the MJ/Kobe/Shaq level can say those stuff and get away with it (Bron too!)
Y’all think clips pressuring PG13 to sign less than Max Ala Kawhi? Be crazy if he goes to Knicks or GS. Same with Harden

At least they've got a shiny, new $2B arena to look forward to next season. Baldmer could buy a lot of things but not a championship.

Wait, wtf, Baldmer is worth $124B now? I thought he had only $60B. He could afford to buy the entire NBA League then.

its absurd how much wealth he has earned. I wish someone with half his wealth can get their hands on the Lakers. Also someone how can avoid acting like a clown in public, but a good owner is a good owner.

The biggest mistake he and the staff he hired made was trade for PG. That move really crippled them in hindsight. If they could have convinced KL to sign without PG, they would have been in a much better place.

I wonder where they would be today if they just kept SGA and told KL take it or leave it but SGA stays

They have a new arena
But they'll have to rebuild with no picks...

The Clippers will be (bleep) for the foreseeable future, but the fans are used to it

Have you paid any attention to Microsoft stock or openAI? That’s why

Yea, I figure. Only way for a multi-billionaire to double his money is having his stock holding doubled.

They will still have the richest owner in all of sports who spends lavishly on the team though. They will still suck but at least they'll suck in style.

Seems like beating the Clippers is a step in Luka's career.

Clippers gave up 80 first half points to Cleveland who are without Mitchell. The Lakers gave up 97 pts total to Cleveland yesterday in a game Mitchell did play in.
