Are NBA referees too soft?

NBA referees have been quick to hand out technical fouls and many NBA fans are sick of seeing the zebras inject themselves into games. Some think this batch of refs is the most thin-skinned group the league has ever had. Others think the referees are being consistent and players are complaining more than ever—these selfish, diva-like NBA players are the real snowflakes. What do you think? 🏀

There used to be a time when referees weren't so sensitive. They understood that in the heat of the moment, competitors are going to be emotional. Officials nowadays are quick with a whistle or a technical for the smallest complaints or reactions.

Snowflake refs gave Russell Westbrook a technical foul that was neither necessary nor warranted. This isn't the first time nor will it be the last. They are the definition of snowflakes.

Referees might be quick to a whistle, but it's only because players are testing their patience constantly. While players complain they can't have a conversation with refs anymore, they also complain about every single call for the entirety of the game.

Referees aren't perfect, but they don't get every call wrong. That kind of whining is grating and unprofessional. The referees are just doing their jobs. They aren't soft.
