I love the NBA, but is it really a fair league? I was watching tonight's Wizards-Cavaliers game and it really got me thinking. Almost every call went Cleveland's way, and there was a few that were really questionable. That foul on Butler with 2 minutes left on LeBron's 3 pointer was really pushing it, and the play the Jamison fouled out on was ticky-tak to say the least. Let's face it, it would be better for the league's popularity if the Cavs win this game, which they did. It is a superstar league, and I bet David Stern wants the Cavs to win b/c they have Lebron.
Here is another example, the NBA draft this past year. Now, I am a huge Bulls fan and am very thankful we have Derrick Rose, but only a 1.7% chance? The fact is, they do not want to see more superstarts go west like Durant and Oden did the year before, and since they do not pull the pingpong balls on screen, no one will know if they fixed it to make Rose to go to a big market.
I hope I am wrong, but I think the NBA is just trying to control everything.
Merry Xmas to everyone and please comment back.
