NBA, but it isn't "rigged" or it fully isn't "rigged" at least. If that was the case we would've seen a LeBron-Kobe finals by now and the Knicks would have a lot more championships.
NBA, hard to get back into it because the officiating is horrible.
How is the NBA the most difficult to officiate!??? They don't call anything!!
that said, my comment earlier about stern putting in the fix was more tongue-in-cheek than cold accusation. i DO believe that stern, via the refs and other means, tries to highlight certain teams and players, but i don't think he's pulling an arnold rothstein or anything like that. it's more of a competitive imbalance than a fix, if that makes sense.
The NBA and its not even close.
49ers, Athletics, Warriors = Life!
49ers = 12-4
Warriors = 51-31 Making it rain!
A's = 59-36 Back to Back AL West Champs!
The NBA is a top sport?Which top sport has the worst officiating?
Boston Red Sox: 63-80, games this week vs. Orioles (3), Royals (4)
Indianapolis Colts: 0-1, Week 2 vs. Eagles
Minnesota Timberwolves: New team, hoping for good things this season.
Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.
Damn, the NBA refs are really hated... who cares they all suck.

Stars have the ball in their hands the most. They shoot the most. They especially know how to get to and attack the rim the most. They SHOULD get more calls.
Do bad calls exist? Of course. 50/50 calls happen tons of time a game...but over the span of a game they tend to even out.
It's the hardest game to officiate because it's fast, continuous and the athletes are just so outrageous right now. Because it's the hardest, it's also pretty much considered the worst.
But I don't think it's because of purposeful human choice. It's just human error.
NBA. explanations not even needed
