    There is just nothing good about this story. Former NBA (and recent college hoops) referee Troy Raymond was found dead due to suicide — a gunshot wound to the head — in a New Orleans hotel just hours after police had found his wife dead in the couple’s Houston area home, according to CBS Sports.…

    Lamar Odom is in the majority, at least when  NBA players seem to fall on the new technical rules. He got one Saturday night — he was called for fouling Sacramento’s Carl Landry in the act, and Odom stood there for a few seconds with his arms straight up indicating he didn’t do anything. Three…

    Grant Hill and Reggie Evans got ejected from a preseason game last night for patting each other on the butt. Seriously. It may be the worst ejection we can remember in the NBA. Referee Bill Kennedy is in mid-season overreaction form. It happened while the Raptors were blowing the Suns out of the building Wednesday…

  4. Message received: Dwight Howard promises less complaining to referees

Strong centers who play through the contact get beat on in ways that would send smaller guards flying to the floor. The guards get those calls, the centers only sometimes. That frustrates…

  5. Who’s arguing now? NBA doubles fines for technicals.

    Oct 1, 2010, 11:37 PM EDT

    We now know it is a two-step process to try and reduce arguing with referees about calls. Step one we learned last week, that NBA referees have been instructed to put up with no guff and give a technical to anyone who makes an “overt gesture” to question a call. Step two — hit them…

    May 18, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    Disgraced former NBA referee Tim Donaghy and the publisher of his book, “Personal Foul,” will no longer be working together, according to Dan Devine of Yahoo! Sports. The book had been published by a company called VTi, but VTi CEO Shawna Vercher stated in an email that her company has “decided to terminate our relationship…
