We all know that the league loves to screw us over in favor of a team like the Clippers. I mean, just look at how many times the Clippers have been in the playoffs and the Finals compared to us.....
The Magic beat the Lakers the other night. Was the league trying to promote Glen Baby Davis over Kobe and Dwight?
I just want to get on the same page as some of you. Orlando is a bigger market than Los Angeles, right?
Stupid Stern and his refs!
So why would the NBA let the Nets lose against Miami on Saturday? Wouldn't a better story be to have the upstart Nets, with a destroyed city, take out the defending champs? Wouldn't ratings increase if the Heat struggled?
The Bucks beat the Celtics on Saturday too. Why would the NBA want to see the Celtics lose?
Just admit it, there isn't a conspiracy. We were outplayed. Plain and simple. Sure, there were a few bad calls. But there were bad calls when we played Houston and OKC. There will be bad calls on Wednesday and Friday. There are always bad calls.
The Clippers are a better team, better coached, and made plays. We're too soft, our players either aren't played or don't make plays, and our coach doesn't do anything to help us win.
Bitching about the officiating is seriously the most pathetic thing fans can do. It's thee lowest form of communication. Just stop. We lost because of our players and coaches, not because of the refs and Stern's grand conspiracy.
Way to prove you either did not watch the game or have no ability to look at this game objectively.
Jefferson can't defend the pick and roll very well. And when he's left with guarding Chris Paul forget about it. But that's true for about 28 other teams out there. Millsap's rotation wasn't exactly great either. But on offense he was pretty good. The only problem he has on offense is the FT's. He needs to get more FT's. And that was the issue tonight. He was 8-17. That's not great but it isn't crappy either. He needs to get a move where he goes TO the basket instead of away from it. He is so good at creating space for himself that he rarelly gets fouled. And he has to find away around that. But he was dunking the ball, blocking shots and passing the ball. All things ppl said he couldn't or wouldn't do.
He wasn't the problem.
has anyone been called for that new flop rule yet?
this I got from wiki. you probably are aware of it:
they are not too strict on applying the rule for everyone.On November 21, 2012, Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans became the first NBA player to be fined for flopping. After having been warned for a previous offense, the NBA league office identified an instance of flopping on Evans in the Nets' loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on November 20, 2012. Evans was fined $5,000.
nevertheless, they should call more flops than those kind of technicals:
Very Questionable Officiating?
Jazz were playing a team from LA, the team from LA is supposed to make the playoffs, the team from LA is full of 'stars'. David Stern picks the officiating crews for every game. I think the outcome was exactly as the NBA wanted.
Nobody believes this is a real competiton do they? Remember Disney, with its predictable plots and princeses, owns NBA partners ABC & ESPN. It helps if you can think of the NBA not as a competition, but more of a live action theatre. Chauncey clearly understands its all an act. Just relax and be entertained.
The NBA, where the Championship Trophy is awarded in June, but won in July.
