If i had to guess Lebron has probably donated more then you or me in his life so he still wins

geoff,

pierce sat longer though. hurts a lot.

Joey Crawford and Bill Kennedy will always turn big games into this, for the record. They get way too involved, make a few mistakes, and then are constantly trying to make up for it.

everything about ESPN and their NBA coverage is horrendous. seems like they are always late getting back to the game after showing useless zoom-ins on peoples faces. then there's the terrible "nba big board."

I guess to be fair, this kinda thing has happened to Dwight (and before him Shaq) in big games a decent amount, but I've never seen this many bad calls on a perimeter player to decide a game. And even if you ignore the LeBron calls, Celtics were still up at least 5 whistles. Refs decided this game MUCH, MUCH more than Game 2.

Didn't watch the whole game so I can't comment on Lebron's first four fouls or so, but that 6th one was the most obvious foul ever.

during the 3rd quarter the commentators mentioned that Crawford had to contain his personality (or something similar) to avoid bitching at the fans, it's incomprehensible that someone like that is still allowed to ref

On LeBron for posting up or on Pietrus for grabbing LeBron around the midsection and pulling him to the ground? And FWIW, as bad as that call was, the double foul with KG for his 5th was like 5x worse.

both of those guys. Joey C has had multiple incidents (ticketing scandal in late 80s or early 90s, and then getting suspended indefinitely after the Duncan debacle). Bill Kennedy was fined 2 years ago for getting personal with Doc.

and these are the dudes reffing big time games?

Joey Crawford is a joke. I hate him with all my being after the 06 finals.
