Best Referees in NBA History

The top NBA referees of all time may be difficult to discuss, largely because

we do not know much about them and because many of us are more interested in the NBA betting lines.

The inability to identify an official by name or face may be a sign of his effectiveness.

The careers of some of the referees on this list have lasted much longer than those of the athletes they officiate.

so the best referees are  1. Ken Mauer

1. Tim Donaghy

1. Mendy Rudolph

1. Joey Crawford

1. Earl Strom
