Is this a Ben McLemore 3-pointer?

The NBA has built a replay center and plans to better leverage technology to get more calls right. The league’s officiating – from on-court refereeing to in-game reviews to post-game accountability – has come a long way.

This is not a shining example of the progress.

From the official Twitter account of the league office:

The most important thing to note is that Ben McLemore‘s shot was actually ruled a 2-pointer. I’m not sure why this tweet suggests otherwise, but the details of the tweet – not the actual scorekeeping – are the error.

The most enjoyable thing to note is how silly this tweet looks.
