WNBA Refs to start NBA games (Pre Season and Regular Season)
"Talks ended on Thursday, when the league and NBA Referee’s Association were unable to come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement. The NBA will use Developmental League and WNBA officials to start the preseason, and perhaps, the regular season."
This could make the tempo of NBA games wayy slower because the fact that NBA refs are wayy more experienced than WNBA refs and NBA developmental refs. A lot of games could be lost in the clutch because of false calls and calls not being called more frequently. It's to bad it had to come to this
I think the biggest difference is the nba refs are better capable of dealing with the NBA attitudes of players and coaches getting on them.
