    Yes, just ignore that in game 1, Ray Allen barely touched the court and last night, KG was in foul trouble the entire game as well.

    And lol at your explanation of the out of bounds call. It was only off of KG because pau pushed his hand. Obviously it touched KG last, but KG would have clearly grabbed it if not for Pau pushing his hand. Not worthy of a foul call, but it would be blatantly unfair to reward the Lakers for a technically illegal play. That is par for the course in NBA officiating. Apparently you don't know how it works. =/

    So was Tim Donaghy refereeing last nights game? Nope, so that kills that argument.

    Secondly the Lakers had 41 free throw attempts and the Celtics had 26 and how many of those took place in the last minute when the Lakers were fouling? So that kills that argument as well.

    If you're claiming the league is actually fixed because your team loss then maybe it's YOU who don't know jack about the NBA which I would believe. Yea lets fix a league and have a team in San Antonio win 4 championships and the two New York teams be terrible. Spurs/Cavs was a snore, if the NBA fixes their games why not have LeBron beat Duncan in a classic series? Your argument makes no sense, no consistency. You're bitter your team lost, get over it.

    The Lakers werent fouling in the last minute because it was a close game. Maybe 2 fouls.

    And I don't ignore Ray Allen in game 1.

    That's EXACTLY why they did this to Kobe this game.

    It's ALL fixed. Get on the same page, kids.

    lol @ 15 fts... Yet when teams shoot 20 more than the Lakers (every game this postseason) it means nothing?
    How many fts should they get with Ray Allen shooting 3s every time down?

    I fixed it for you

    That game was obviously fixed. You don't even need an unbiased view of the game to see that

    You're ignoring the bigger picture here. If the NBA is fixed how come the playoffs have sucked so far? If the NBA is fixed why is San Antonio and not LeBron winning championships? Did the NBA fix the series last year? Seems like that wasn't fixed as it was only 5 games. Get back to reality gloat. Quit making up stuff because your team lost. You have ZERO proof to support your claim except a youtube video. When you get shot down by a girl do you just assume she's a lesbian? Obviously nothing can ever be just so with you can it?

    Besides Kevin Garnett was in foul trouble to but no mention of him. You're so delusional.

    Zero proof? ONCE AGAIN: The NBA has been under heavy scrutiny for fixing games.

    What do I need, video evidence for you? Are you really that closed off as to how professional sports work?

    Did you even watch that video?




    And the NBA loses nothing by having Dwight Howard move on over Lebron. Afterall, Dwight Howard is the 2nd big to Lebron, is he not? He's all over commercials and america loves him, right?

    Better yet- the NBA is REAAAALLLY hurting by having the number 1 rivalry in the NBA go at it in the Finals, I guess... right?

    The ratings were great for game 1. So they'll milk it.

    If you don't understand this, that's ok. Go back to pretending fixing doesn't happen in your perfect sports world.

    Hell, I admit the Lakers were the victors vs the Kings due to fixing years back.



    Keep your eyes closed tight! And also understand refs can only do so much. They're not going to start counting 3s as 6 pointers because they're supposed to go easy on a certain team. They just help. And in close games like last night- it's plenty to sway.

    I think the NBA may be fixed IN THE SENSE that the referees give certain guys the star treatment. Has anyone actually watched a Cavs game lately? LeBron shoots more free throws from ticky tack calls than any player in history.

    If you listen to donaghy, he thinks that these series have been expanded by the referees because of advertising money. Is the NBA or the network going to make more advertising money on a series sweep or a 7 game epic showdown?

    I don't think the actual winner of the series has been influenced by the referees. I do think the referees are in the business of extending the series. I think that when they make the calls, they have the interests of the NBA at mind and if the NBA will make money with a longer series, then they will do what they can to expand this.

    The beautiful thing about the NBA is the fact that the referees can be against your team in the interest of expanding the series but if you just happen to be in the zone and your team has a huge lead going into the 4th, there's nothing the referees can really do to change the outcome.

    Some coaches in all sports do not like the keep it close mentality because you are effectively putting the game in the hands of the referee at the end of the game.

    When you have a close game in any sport, the argument can be made that the outcome is always put in the referees hands. Such as the extra two seconds after the play clock hit 0 that Joe Flacco received from the referees in the 2008 play off game. At that time, the score was 10-10 and we all know what happened after that.

    I dont think the referees fix the games because of an agenda in regards to the a certain team. I think they fix the games in the interest of the NBA, but can only do so when the games are close. When Boston was ruining Orlando going up by 20-30, there was very little the referees could do to extend the series per the interest of the NBA. In game 4 of the boston orlando series, you noticed how dwight howard stopped begging the refs for calls.. because he was actually getting them.

    OK Gloat take off the tin foil hat and listen.

    They were with one referee who has said he never fixed games just provided insight to gamblers. Are you aware of that or did you just read the hype around the story and not the story itself.

    No I didn't and I'm not going to, I already saw the game. It was poorly officiated but it was poorly officiated on both ends.

    Way to create a straw man, this isn't the argument I was making at all. Put on your reading glasses and actually read my posts.

    - If the NBA is fixed why only have LeBron in 1 finals with 0 wins? That was a boring finals, if the NBA was fixing games don't you think they wouldn't have sweeps.

    - If the NBA is fixed what is San Antonio doing winning championships and bringing in low ratings?

    - If the NBA is fixed why are the two teams from the countries biggest market awful?

    - If the NBA is fixed why not have the Lakers/Magic go 7 games and not 5?

    - If the NBA is fixed why have these playoffs been incredibly boring?

    Answer all of these questions or I'll know you're a fraud just like this idiotic argument.

    Your argument is full of holes and holds no water. You're just mad about one game or else you're just one of those nut jobs who believes everything is a conspiracy. Did aliens build the pyramids too?

    You have no proof except a youtube video. Take off the tin foil hat and stop pretending everything is a conspiracy, you're embarrassing yourself.

    The NBA want's this series to go 7 games. If you don't realize that, then stick to following football. I picked Boston to win in 6 or 7 games knowing the league is hoping this drags out. I'm loving the drama building up, it's making games 3, 4, & 5 all that more intriguing. I'm neither a Celtics or Lakers fan, but this is as good a series as you'll see in sports.
