Referees make mistakes in every sport at every level. But the W.N.B.A. has had particularly embarrassing miscues in recent years, including wrong players shooting free throws and Elena Delle Donne being credited for a basket that never went through the net.

And, y'know, failure to stop the game for a review (which would've negated a basket) in the final minutes of a championship-deciding game. I'd put that above Player X shooting Player Y's free throws, personally.

They talked about that earlier in the article. I used that pull quote because I'm not ready to let go of EDD's bucket that didn't go in.

I thought you were going to go in on the Times putting full-stops in the acronym again.
