Pretty interesting article about how NBA stats are subjective and therefor home team stats get a boost.

The NBA is crooked. Nobody watches it anymore.

Like boxing it has a reputation for being a corrupt sport of yesteryear that currently exemplifies all the negative African American stereotypes America still harbors.

I still like watching the NBA. I suppose you can't deny some crooked elements, but the fudging of stats is not the problem as much as how much control a ref can have over a game imo.

I suppose football refs can do the same thing -there is some holding on every play if you want to call it and one bad pass interference call will change a game. I wouldn't be surprised if football refs were offered a lot of shady money to influence a game just like Donaghy.

Cool article... I already knew the numbers were a little inflated but it was still disheartening for me reading that because I love the NBA.

I think Chris Paul's consecutive games with a steal and his steals numbers in general are highly suspect.

and assists are definitely given out way too liberally for everyone
