Progressive NBA commissioner Adam Silver just got ahead of the Social Justice Warriors curve with a new declaration putting into place a gender quota for hiring coaches and referees. Silver announced the new “goal” of a 50-50 male to female hiring ratio, bemoaning that the referee position has been “so male-dominated for so long.” “We have a program too. There’s no reason why women shouldn’t be coaching men’s basketball,” Silver said.

While the commissioner of the NFL is frequently criticized by the sports media for not being progressive enough, the commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver, enjoys a sterling reputation for standing on the woke side of social justice issues. His recent declaration about a gender quota for both coaches and referees is sure to only help his progressive credentials.
At an event Thursday hosted by The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., Silver touted his new “goal” for the league he helms: a 50-50 male to female hiring ratio for both coaches and referees.
Speaking about referees currently in the league, Silver lamented that the position has been “so male-dominated for so long.” His new goal: that half of the new referees hired by the league will be women.
