ref lockout

What do you guys think about the refs not getting a deal done? Do you think it will impact the season, or do you think the replacements from the nbdl and wnba will do a solid job and we will hardly notice?

It will be a big difference

It will be a big difference in their impact on the game, most of these NBA ref's have been ref's for 20+ or 30+ years, they know the ins and outs of the NBA game as well as the players.

Considering how bad the refs

Considering how bad the refs were in some games maybe new blood will help as long as they dont let players and fans intimidate them. New people may actually call the game the way it should be.

They didnt just pick random

They didnt just pick random bums of the street, alot of the "replacement refs" have been refereeing in the WNBA and D-League for years, so there not total rookies

There biggest challenge would be dealing with the superstars, and the personalitys of the NBA

I think the replacements

I think the replacements know all the rules. But in the NBA you have to deal with ego's both the players and coaches. You can't be intimidated.
