Default Should Violette Palmer be an NBA official?

Do you feel she exudes all the proper credentials to be an official on the biggest stage the sport of basketball has to offer or do you feel that shes
only employed because its great publicity for the NBA from a buisness standpoint BUT in truth shes really taking the job from more qualified individual just because shes a woman?

Lets be real for a sec...

I think she should be a WNBA official, but not an NBA official.

Because she is not a great NBA ref, but I feel she could be a great WNBA ref. IMO she just doesnt seem to understand whats a foul and whats not a foul in the NBA. I dont know why but I think she would just excel in the WNBA.

because idiots and ignoramuses think she is a soft contact ref because she is a woman.


one of the Celtic's homer announcers once criticized one of her foul calls on Pierce by telling her to go home and make him some bacon and grits in the kitchen.

Default Re: Should Violette Palmer be an NBA official?

Does anyone have any evidence as to the level of her officiating which is not based on either viewing her sporadically during the season or using some other anecdotal form of critique?
