Adam “Woke” Silver: I want 50% of new NBA officials and coaches to be women
quote:

WASHINGTON -- NBA commissioner Adam Silver wants half of all new referees joining the league to be women -- and he would like to see teams hire female coaches, too.

In an appearance Thursday for The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., Silver said two of the past five refs added from the developmental G League were women, bringing the total number of female officials to three.

"It's an area, frankly, where I've acknowledged that I'm not sure how it was that it remained so male-dominated for so long. Because it's an area of the game where physically, certainly, there's no benefit to being a man, as opposed to a woman, when it comes to refereeing," Silver said.

"The goal is: Going forward, it should be roughly 50-50 of new officials entering in the league. Same for coaches, by the way. We have a program, too. There's no reason why women shouldn't be coaching men's basketball.

I hope I’m not the only one who finds this absolutely fricking moronic. Whatever happened to hiring the most qualified applicant?

Same thing that happens in the corporate world when somebody bangs their boss?

I mean it's not like that happens in the WNBA and there are a bunch of male coaches in that league

Doesn't seem like Becky hammon has had an inappropriate relationship with any of the spurs players

Are we going to reduce African American players down to 13% too?

Edit: What about height? The average American male is 5’10”. Id like to see equal representation there too. There’s really countless ways we can chop this up

This is a low effort way to stay PC. Melting over it like a bunch of queers is really sad.

I’m sure it will be as awesome as listening to the woman calling the Philadelphia/Toronto game.
