Or do "they " now want the Kings to win?

That call when Webber lost it out of bounds... <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Other that that he really had a nice game.

I'm really starting to think this might happen for Sacto. Their fans sure deserve it.

No, EmAn, this would only show that David Stern saw thug life's posts and said "Call off the fix, we've been discovered!"

Thanks, Dick Tracy, for foiling the evil plots of THEM.

Yes everybody, thank TW97 for his "saving" the NBA. Where would we be without his, um... genius?

Actually, maybe I'll take his viewpoint. I think it'd go a little something like this:

"Clearly the Lakers are the better team, but NBC, David Stern and his lackies, want the big market Kings in the Finals. Vlade's flopping payed off and Shaq spent most of the game ridin' the pine with a few phantom calls. While C Webb got the calls allowing him to stay on the floor and clothesline Fisher to aide in the game winning shot. Even then Kobe almost won the game and 'overcame' the "secret guiding force' that controls the outcome of all pro sports. And, um Reggie Miller is the greatest player ever... you can tell by all of his Championship Rings! "

OK, how was that? Oh, wait I almost forgot...

"And Shaq sucks, he's only good because he's big. If I was big I'd have 50 points a game and like 40 rebounds and I'd dunk on everybody... And Kobe sucks too! Ya! He's like the worst 22 year old ever with ONLY 2 rings! Ya, take that Kobe!"

Good, eh?

Oh, wait...

"Now I'm gonna go hang out with all of my other cool internet freinds that know what's REALLY going on in pro sports and talk about how we're the real fans. Ya!"

Ya, that sounds about right.

BTW, how many times did Shaq go to the FT line? 1 time. Oh, the conspiracy!

LOL That was pretty good patmcfar8, except you still need some work dogg.

THE KINGS OVERCOME IT! MINI ME PREVAILS, AND THE IRISH BOY FAILS! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

No, I'm not gonna say that now it is fixed for the Kings. What I am going to say is that DESPITE NBC, the refs, the WWE, Vince Mcmahon, and david Stern's efforts to make these lakers a new dynasty ($$$), the Kings have just killed them. The refs were bullsh8t once again and called everything in favor of the Fakers.

You guys STILL don't get it. Ok, you have basketball which is a game, sport right? You can't just AUTOMATICALLY say "Ok, you guys win, tell the other team not to come". In the WWE (NBA), you got guys who are out there trying to play and win, and they aren't going along with things. Most team's aren't gonna just stop trying to play, but what happens is you have the league's front office making sure that the refs are sucking the Laker's cocks (sorry for that reference, but I had to use it). That means it's gonna be hard to overcome the officiating of the game and pull off a win.

Let me give you a kind of analogy that might help explain it a bit. My high school's men's bball team were ranked very high in the USA TODAY Top 25 in the nation in '99, I think #7 or something and the only loss was to Christ The King at the Slam Dunk to the Beach Tournament (where all the best teams are invited to play). They absolutely rolled through the state tourney and were beating everybody in Ohio by 30-40 points, even the best teams. Here they are championship game and what happens. I heard that our center took a bribe to lose the game. I also heard that a few others were approached. I believe it was our starting 5 that were approached. Here's the deal. Our C and PF took the bribes. Our PG, SG, and SF didnt take the bribes. The C who was the leading scorer all year managed only 2 pts and fouled out o the game early. The other one played poorly too. Meanwhile, Sidney was amazing and scored I think 24 (the game was extremely low scoring), and I heard he was very vocal in turning down the bribe. The result: a loss.

I don't know if that really explains anything, just kinda makes me mad that it happened.

I think the officiating has been much better this year and that has a lot of effect on the Kings being up 3-2. A lot better than the last 2 years I can tell you.

I'm leaving work to go and watch the games, but I thought I'd drop this question: When was the last time that both Conf. Finals went to game 7's in the same year?

That's what's gonna happen tonight when the Lakers and Celtics both win. And everybody knows that ANYTHING can happen in game 7. Who will be in the Finals? Time will tell...

A rather interesting article there. Sadly the attempt at humor was rather insipid. A head guy at the league or TV or wherever it was would not be as clueless. I think he or should would know what team Shaq & Kobe were on. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" /> He is right about Patrick Ewing though.

That's all Walton ever does is say "bad call" after he said, "good play" 5 minutes earlier. I must admit that there were 2 bad calls that I can agree with, a foul on "floppy" divac and that elbow to bibby's face at the end of the game that shoulda been called. Oh well, game 7. Sunday.

On a side note, whoever wins game 7, the Nets have no chance.

On a side side note. How about patrick roy and his 6, yes SIX goals allowed against the Wings? Retribution is a bitch, Colorado. The King's 7th game sh!t story ends well as the Av's get the crap beat out of them like they deserved!

We're supposed to be impressed that they rolled... the Celtics? <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Kidding.

It's not fixed, thug life, it's bad officiating. The Lakers have been bitching like mad lately so the refs respond.

I think the Nets match up much better with the Kings, and they lean toward Jersey's style of play.

Martin and Williams could give Webber problems, but T-mac on Shaq-yikes.

Bibby-Kidd would be a fun duel, too.

If the Kings go I think the series will be longer than people think, I'd love to the the Nets pull it off, but wouldn't predict it.

I'm afraid the Lakers would-how do you kids say-"Roll."

And you really oughta watch the damn games and realize that the NBA isn't a sport but business. You know....you must be somebody who goes "Hey look Bibby got socked in the elbow by Showbe and the ref was looking right him...nah they couldnt could they...". I'm not going to point to every single ****ing example because it would take a "Mercury Rising (" thread just to fill it....and then some. Just on this series alone. Watch basketball and stop being so naive that they wouldnt try to ix pro sports. It happens, get over it.

I've been trying to look for things over the course of the games I've watched in the Conference Finals, and to me, evidence just hasn't been there.

There were possesion-determining calls late in games 5 and 7 in the West that -easily, easily-could have gone either way and the Kings got the call both times. I'm thinking of Webber just dropping the ball out of bounds all by himself in 5 and the apparent air-ball that looked to all the world like a shot-clock violation in 7.

I'm not baiting you, I just want to know what you think...

How do those calls go Sacramento's way if the fix is in?

Jeff

Edit, the Webber play was in 5, I put 6 at first.

What about when Kobe got called for running down Kobe? Or when the refs didn't call Kobe getting absolutely mugged by Christie down low towards the end of OT?

I hate the Lakers.

I can't even work up fake emotion about you (of all people) calling me a ****ing idiot.

Do you have any explanation for why the Lakers came damned close to losing many different times that game? No?
Chris Webber has somehow mastered the art in secret of making 3-pointers roll in and then out.

You've really got all this figured out. :roll:

There is no fix... not in this game.. . . . allthoug there were debatable calls (the shot clock violation was not one of them but rather Divac's last fould out . . .very questionable... and others) but they pretty much balanced out by the end of the game.

Its part of the game. You have to be able to play the refs; to read them and their testiness; what they tend to call and what they tend to overlook, and be able to use it to your advantage.

Now in game six, that's a different story . . . mafia all over those refs.....

Anyway that was a very very exciting game... I really wanted the Kings to win..... oh well.

That's about the dumbest thing I think you've ever said, white boy. Should I even comment? Hmm...let's see here...perhaps Sacramento is really winning and are a much better team....perhaps they are kicking the fakers ass no? And perhaps the refs are giving them the games. Hmm, could be. Could it not, cracker?

That's the whole point pfflam. Game 6 was obvious. I mean people in here don't even see that. It's pretty sad if you ask me. Without that there would be no Gmame 7. This game...still BS calls again, but I think it wasnt as bad. Point is the Kings already won the series twice.

Read your own post again. You just said that it was fixed. Yeah, you weren't saying the same tune before. Funny how a team gets good for 1 season and all of a sudden all of New York & New Jersey are Nets fans. The Nets will get rolled by the Cheaters. Watch it for me and then tell me what you think.

If there is a fix the players don't know it.

And, however much I want to dislike Kobi, everytime I hear him talk he is gracious and thoughtful and shows that he either has learned alot from Phil Jackson's wisdom based coaching style, or, he is actually a mature individual. I don't think he would cheat.

But I'll definitly watch just to see the Nets win... if they start lossing Im grabbing the remote.

I see you ignored everything else in my post... because you have no idiot explanation for it.

What about Kobe getting called for running through Bibby? What about the no-call later on Kobe getting mugged down low? Or after that the no-call on Shaq getting hacked as he goes towards the basket (not the blown dunk)? How about that charging call against Fisher?

Nope, no explanation for that.

What of Chris Webber's 3-pointer rolling in and out? Did Stern have him practice, thug life, tiga tiga woods ya'll?

What of Kobe missing one of those free throws? What about Bibby lighting up the net towards the end?

Anything? All orchestrated?

Name a few bullshit pro-Lakers calls in the late 4th quarter/OT. Go ahead. Name one.
