The NBA Fix Continues

The Rondo foul on Brad Miller was a flagrant foul no matter what point in the game, regular season or playoffs.  Rondo did not even attempt to go for the ball unless he thought the ball was Brad Miller's head.  I can see how he might of been confused someone head and a basketball are both round.  This play, has not just highlighted what has happened in the game, but in the series as a whole.  The refs calls have heavily favored the Celtics and the Bulls have not been able buy a foul.  I know that the NBA needs the Celtics to win and I know that the refs calls will always favor the team the NBA feels needs to win for ratings, but these calls have been ludacris!!  Throughout the series there has been obvious bias towards the Bulls in the form of ticky tack fouls and no calls. If the NBA and David Stern want to get away from the image of refs fixing games it might be a good idea to make clear to all refs to call fair and even games for both teams no matter who is playing.  You might be suprised to see when people do not try to influence the outcome the games are still very exciting.

FWIW?def playoff basketball he took his shot got his flagrant,no complaints it was obvious something was going to happen.he didnt play his usual go to the basket game,easy know why but he sure did get everyone else involved.prob would have won if he played his normal game but hindsight is a wonderful thing.He will play his normal game tomorrow night and i think that will be enough to get the job done.ive seen enough ot in this series.

19majors, I'd be interested in your assessment of the Rondo-Hinrich incident last night.  Was Rondo just playing "playoff basketball" when he whipped Hinrich into the scorer's table?

Rondo played extremely well last night, FWIW.  19 assists with, I believe, zero turnovers.  That's amazing if the zero turnovers is correct.

Not quite as amazing as Ray Allen's shooting, but still awfully impressive.

The NBA Fix Continues

I've cleary made my point well beyond the need for you to graduate on to the second grade.  The spell check was a suggestion for you, but you obviously don't need it because your spelling ability is quite evident already(existence=existance, commissioner=commisioner, said=sade, awhile is one word ignoramus).  I would refresh your memory on proper puctuation as well, but obviously your short term memory is nonexistent.  Oh I'm sorry I didn't realize David Stern, a lawyer by trade who has never played organized ball in his life was the end all be all when it comes to interpretation of the rule book.  If you feel the need to further your ignorance by calling people names, so be it.  But just a quick bit of advice, it only makes you appear even more assinine that you've already proven to be.  It's a shame you had to open your mouth and tarnish what has turned out to be a great series.

I agree that the officiating has been horrendous, but only a fool yes a fool would say that the bad calls have been evenly distributed.  The fact that you believe that someone deserves to be hit in the face for supposedly taunting an opponent only proves to me and the rest of the cbssports community how ignorant you truly are.  Using your twisted logic, Ben Gordon should have slapped KG in the face for taunting him not once, but on several occasions.  To make matters worse, KG isn't even in uniform.  If you have too many bumps and bruises and can't even suit up for a playoff game, keep your butt on the bench and your mouth shut.  KG was awfully quiet up until the point where his teammates, not him closed the gap at the end of the game.  Takes a big man to beat his chest and mean mug opponents when he's dressed in a suit and tie and sitting on the bench.  Miller was acting a little hesitant at the end of the game, but I suppose I would be a little out of it to if I just got punched in the face.  Miller lost a tooth and recieved stitches by the way, I'm sure they left that out of the papers in Beantown.  Genius is the word you choose to use in your description Rondo and/or whatevrer game he has, most genius's I know would be able to differentiate between a basketball and Miller's head.  He had no intention of going for the ball, it WAS a flagrant foul, no doubt about it, end of discussion.  If you don't want to take my word for it, ask 95% of the basketball world (outside of Boston).  The defending champs and a team that has won more championships than any other team in the NBA should be able to set a better example for the rest of the league.  By the way, a lot is two words, proper nouns and words at the beginning of a sentence should be capitalized, and try using spell check or a dictionary once in awhile.

The fans of the losing team invariably complains about the refs.  I read somewhere a Celtics fan claim his brethren don't complain because they've won lots of championships and "have been there before."  LOL.  It doesn't matter who it is.  The fans of the team that loses, that gets eliminated blames, at least in part, the refs.

Of course, there's always exceptions.  I would hope that not too many Hornets fans are blaming the refs for that 58 point beat down.  At home, yet!  Holy crap, is that embarrassing.

If the Nuggets actually win it all, Joe Dumars should get both a winning share and a ring.  He'd be as responsible for that championship as anyone.  Just ask Pistons fans.

what god damn series have you been watchin,yes the refereeing has been brutal but no way has it been one sided,if anything bulls have had by far the better treatment if anything to probably give them a chance.as for rondo and miller, miller deserves everything he got and more he was openly goading ray aleen after he got him fouled out,what a crybaby missed a free throw and was acting up like he was really injured and was going to pass out,if that first free throw went in he would not have done that.as for rondo who is alot smaller than miller he is the player of the series already no matter what happens next,pure genius again last night,28 POINTS,11 ASSISTS,8 REBOUNDS AND 1 SLAP IN THE MOUTH TO A VERY DESERVING RECIPIENT.
