Similarly, the notion of "the ball don't lie," coined by Rasheed Wallace, states that players subconsciously miss more free throws after a bad foul call. This phenomenon also turns out to be a real thing, since the psychology of inequity aversion kicks in and significantly lowers players' free throw percentages following questionable foul calls. There's even evidence that racism, either conscious or unconscious, is present among NBA referees.
Doesn't all of this make the game more interesting? Maybe it's just me.
