In the future, when we have robot refs (running on open-source software that anybody can audit), we will enjoy peace of mind knowing that every NBA game is officiated fairly and without bias. But something will be lost: the ability to make really mad posts about reffing on the internet.
There is a whole subclass of people whose sole purpose in life is to let people know that the refs hate their team. When the refs no longer feel human emotions, being robots, what will those people yell about on the internet? That Adam Silver is rigging the robots? Little do they know that Adam Silver is already a robot!
Thankfully, nothing, not even robot refs, will ever lessen my ability to insult Matt Barnes’ appearance. At least, not until the players themselves are replaced by robots. That will be fun to watch. Until then, Matt Barnes has a punchable face and his hair looks like it fell out of a Backstreet Boys video.
