Taking a Dive

Taking a dive is nothing new in the NBA although given the current sorry state of officiating it opens up opportunity for even worse refereeing. Given the NBA's inability to do something about the sorry state of officiating, it is trying to cut down on the number of dives players take on little or no contact. I hope this is done reviewing tapes after the game and not left for their pathetic Rumsfeldian incompetent referees to determine during the course of the game.

I found this brilliant nugget from the greatest coach and executive in the history of the league decrying the cheating done by players taking a dive. This guy was not above pushing the rules to the limit but understood how this could get out of control.

Without further ado, the legendary Arnold "Red" Auerbach.
