Why jump balls give basketball refs too much influence

Why jump balls give basketball refs too much influence

It’s pretty weird that some pro basketball league still use a jump ball to solve tie-up situations. We’re really gonna put that much trust in the athletic ability of referees? Tossing a jump ball isn’t as easy as it looks! What if the ref throws the ball too soon or too far to one side?

Some basketball leagues have solved the above problem with cop-out procedures like the possession arrow, but we’d like to suggest some alternative options. What about a fan vote? No? Okay, how about a foot race for possession? Still no? Well, you can’t possibly say no to SKY BALL.
