Abstract

In this chapter the use of instant replay in the National Basketball Association (NBA) is described. After detailing the historical evolution of replay in the NBA, the chapter explores the impact of legal and illegal gambling on the expanded use of replay, followed by a section on media perceptions, an explanation of real or perceived bias amongst NBA referees, and concludes with a description of the NBA Replay Center. Similar to the National Football League, the NBA has utilized some form of replay technology for multiple decades, and how the league approaches the use of video technology to train and grade referees could serve as a roadmap for sports just beginning to utilize forms of replay.
