HoS: Tom Haberstroh Has a Smoking Gun on NBA Not Calling Fouls (Or Does He?)

I think Tom proves the NBA is hiding something, but does Tom think so as well?

Tom Haberstroh has written an explosive article in The Finder about just how improbable the NBA’s post All-Star break scoring drought is. I think it’s impossible to look at these numbers and reach any conclusion other than that the NBA directed referees to call games differently. But does Tom himself think this? Discussion includes but is not limited to…

  • A wild free throw stat, unseen in 2000 games, happens twice on the same night

  • Tom gets into the numbers on a dramatic drop in fouls called

  • GMs don’t believe the league’s position that this is random and non directed

  • I say it really really really really looks like the NBA is lying

  • Why would the NBA lie about something so (allegedly) obvious?

  • Tom reveals a sneaky big benefit to the lack of foul calls

  • “Trying to get pregnant” is a funny euphemism.
