How do you then explain the ISO 6400 with the shot and histogram I posted? Are you willing to concede it was probably at least 3 stops worse than your NBA game lighting?

I cannot assume the difference is three stops in the lighting. It could be that some of it is at least due to how your camera meters a particular scene and how it applies ISO selection. We have seen this argument with how Olympus is promoting high ISO capabilities in its newer cameras.

The other part is your reluctance to using anything but high shutter speed even though the situation does not warrant it. You are doing so at the expense of DR which is central to your argument. Why not use a lower ISO for better DR if that is a key factor?

I like the ball being frozen. Why does that mean the situation doesn't warrant it?  How else are you going to freeze it? The lighting is just pretty bad in there - a buddy of mine shoots indoor soccer with a 6d and has trouble as well.
