Joey Crawford and Scott Foster tonight. Foster got 10k phone calls from donaghy before and after games. Joey Crawford won't necessarily rig this game, but there will be a ton of whistles, which favors Miami.

Watching euro cup or whatever the tourney name is, a lot of these guys make the Paul Pierce face when they get touched.

"With the exception of 150 calls Donaghy placed to Thomas Martino, to whom he says he provided “picks” to win games and who was the middleman between the disgraced referee and a bookie named James Battista, the ex-ref phoned no one more than he called Foster."

"Donaghy might logically communicate with other referees he was officiating with . . . But Donaghy and Foster did not referee a single game together during the 2006-2007 season."

hey man, David Stern said Donaghy was one rogue official and he will fine / bury anyone who even suggests otherwise. Are you suggesting he's lying in order to cover up problems and strongarm everyone into presenting the image for the league that he wants?

Thanks for the mental image bro. :-x

I actually read everything I could on the topic. Some people were adamant it happened, while others were adamant that it didn't.

So Blowgate 10' is still unconfirmed afaik imo.

Makes sense. Wouldn't want to have Labron vs Durant in the final.

no, if lebron had pippen and pjax he would he be in the GOAT discussion. Lebron's "stats" are better than MJ's.

and i say this as a Lebron hater.

come on, don't be like mavs fans.

spurs got outplayed, nothing else to say. OKC was amazing.

Crawford is AIDS though, I think he might edge out Derek Fisher for #1 on my list of people I want to punch in the face. I can't believe he still has a job, can't believe he gets to do so many big games. Sigh in advance at him ruining a potentially classic game tonight. God damn it.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

i'm not saying anything about crawford rigging, by the way. I think my point about being whistle happy is correct, though. That's not rigging, that's just an advantage for the heat.

I'm mainly just pissed Joey C is involved in such a big game. Games 5 and 6 were refereed beautifully. Not a ton of whistles, good flow in the games, and no blatant favoritism. I want more of that in game 7.

But Joey C, even in games he refs OK, makes himself a part of the game like no other referee.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Right, that's my problem with Crawford too. It has nothing to do with "ZOMG THIS IS RIGGED!!!" Crawford's style just ruins games. And he's an *******.

Depends which MJ ur talking about. Peak MJ (u know the one that never titled and won like 4 playoff series) is probably the GOAT. Winner MJ v current lebron is more interesting, I think its reasonable to take labron for a season and give Jordan the edge as a closer. I still assert that both a) lebron is underrated as a closer and b) the idea that MJ 'learned how to win' is ridic...but Jordan was a closer of the likes we've never seen.

I think one thing that is never really considered when this discussion comes up, is that its certainly possible that the 'clutch situation' seems to favor a Jordan rather than a lebron since he's a more effective mid-range player. When u match both of them up there's lots of things lebron does better like rebounding/passing/defense, but when defenses tighten up and driving is less of an option, Jordan certainly has an edge when u need to score which wud lead to him being more successful in clutch situations.
