NBA referees will answer questions about calls in real time over Twitter in a selection of games for the rest of the season, starting with two games next week.

Per the report: “During Monday’s Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers game on TNT and Wednesday’s San Antonio Spurs at Philadelphia 76ers game on ESPN, fans can tweet @OfficialNBARefs or use the hashtag #RefWatchParty to get responses from officials who are watching the game.”

The National Basketball Referees Association first tried out the conceptduring Game 3 of last year’s NBA Finals between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. This year, the NBRA will be working with the NBA league office on the endeavor and will have access to the replay center in Secaucus, New Jersey, allowing them to review replays and view different angles on potentially controversial or questionable calls.

While the NBA Referees Twitter account generally tweets the referee assignments for games, it also answers fan questions online at times:

This might just be a horrible idea. 

Which is fantastic.
