The 10 Commandments Of Basketball RefereeingS

Last week, FIBA Asia held its annual referee clinic in Singapore. Along with boring clerical matters like getting licensed, attendees also received a pen! With a roll-out scroll featuring FIBA's 10 Referee Commandments. Like Moses down from the mountain, a Reddit user has passed along the wisdom contained within.

I'm confused by Nos. 2 (This is about not usurping your fellow officials' calls? Making your crew look good is better than getting a call right, I guess.) and 4 (I'm not sure how making a bad call early is going to help show everyone how you're going to call the game.) No. 7 seems to mean swallow your whistle. No. 10 is just inscrutable.

But the rest is good advice. Especially the part about being a bad boy.
