Because they're all in the NBA.
Officiating in the NBA is almost certainly the most difficult job as far as officiating goes (I mean . . my job of saving widows and orphans is more difficult, but I digress). Nevertheless, I get so aggravated at the obvious abuse of discretion and arrogance displayed by the officials in squelching the least sign of protest and keeping the game under control (pussies).
I don't have a dog in this particular hunt (series), but I would love to see a player coldcock an official and the coach calmly walk out and kick him in the ribs. Then, the next day, the owner comes out and says "I full support my players and coach", and then name the three officials and publicly announce their home addresses.

I used to referee a lot. Got me thru college. When you start calling the more elite athletes ( in my case junior college), it's difficult because they are so fast and athletic.
But I have to say, the NBA refs anticipate more calls than you could shake a stick at. These Mfers have a chip on the shoulders. It's frustating to watch the tick tack calls they make just to try to get the game "under control".
