I only watch ECF/WCF/Finals every year, anything else I couldn't handle.

I thought that was a reach by Rondo tbh

Either the refs are rigging or it's just not possible to call the game correctly which leads to massive shifts in advantage between two teams, but they have way too much control. They are basically a third team on the court actively shaping the way a game goes based on max 75% accuracy which is ridiculous in a sport.

I think reviews would just make a stop start game even more intolerably choppy and boring.

I want to support the Cs and not be fairweather but I want to punish the NBA too and not watch. I really don't like it.
I rarely watch, but from what I have seen, it seems like there's no way there's not some sort of conspiracy. I don't know if it's as overt as Stern saying "hey, I want Miami to win this year," but something is going on beyond just regular referee incompetence. It might be more of a wink nudge thing, but there's definitely something. Plus, just compare it to NCAA basketball. There's nowhere near this much BS. Admittedly, the pace is faster in the NBA, but I doubt it's THAT much harder to call.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

The NCAA does it right with fat old guys like Higgins and Burr, it's much easier to just chalk it up to incompetence when the refs are literally waddling up and down the court

weren't you the guy claiming riggage after every game in the Pacers-Heat series? Even after everyone told you you were being dumb and the refs were fine

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Terrible officiating tonight. Though once I saw that the Hornets got the number pick I knew the fix was in. Home team will win every game in this series to maximize revenue. I'm still fuming mad, but I'm moving on.

Unrelated.. Breen is horrendous to listen to. "The Celtics are quitting! .. oh wait maybe they are just putting 3 point shooters in"

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Yeah I'm not one to believe in outright riggage, but this league is definitely biased towards stars and high profile teams in general. What we saw today was unfortunate more than anything, but for this to happen twice in a row is just sad for the NBA.

I'm a Pacers fan. I might have some bias towards them, but yes, I thought the officiating was imbalanced in the Heat's favor, especially in games 1 and 4.

Now in this case, I'm completely ambivalent. I could care less who wins (in fact I've disliked the Cs for a long time)- I only want a fair series that is entertaining to watch. I have NO doubt that the officiating was massively tilted in the Heat's favor. NONE. And nor would you if Lebron James' dick wasn't so far up your ass that it's messing with your brain.

I am so glad I am not a C's fan. I just enjoy rooting against the Heat and i am sincerely upset. Sorry C's fan that one was just cruel.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Rando got grazed on that Wade "murder" play but laid down like he got shot leaving his team facing a 4 on 5 fastbreak to give Miami the lead. If that was Labron, there would be 20 poasts saying yeah he got fouled but thats what he gets for being a flopping *****.

And the KG/Wade play at best could have gone either way, KG clearly extended his arms into Wade. Less obvious than goaltending call everyone was going ballistic about in game 1, meaning not obvious at all.
