Please cite these "worse non-calls" as I don't remember that at all.

And it's nice to see heat superfan mburke prove yet again he's nothing but an NBA tourist. Yes, sheed certainly had carte blanche to hack labron in '08. While he was a piston.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Anatta you've already hit bottom.

The Celtics suck and are losing in maximum 5 games. KG is a ***** and got punked by Bron and DWade in these 2 games. He's that weak ass fake tough lil *****.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Took another look at the tape, and Rondo was slow but did try to get back once he realized he didn't get the foul. Was too hard on him there.

I would need to see an example of these touch fouls that people are complaining about. If you are willing to admit that Labron earned alot of the calls he got then I can work with you on a few calls here and there, but not so much zomg they shot a million FTs, rogged. I do know that Rando "touch fouled" Labron several times on that jump ball, seems like it would have been unfair to just let them guard Labron like that all game. Like if they "touch foul" him almoast every time he gets the ball and the refs call a third or half of them, is that really unfair?

Or an old and injured Pierce fouled out even tho he did the same against the Sixers, rogged, lol. Though his 6th foul was questionable but not in the way people are saying. Looked like two other Cs fouled Labron before the contact w/ Pierce so it prob should have been called on one of them.

That's a fine screen shot before the foul. I just watched the replay on YouTube. The foul call on KG is fine, though prob technically offsetting fouls since clearing with the leg allowed him the space to shoot it.

Your point regarding rondo is still beyond ******ed. As is Iggy's.

Spo's reaction is probably the best part of the vid. Only Vinny is more out of his element.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

it's just too bad that complaints about officiating and what not are overshadowing one of the best playoff performances i've ever seen. rondo is a g. played every minute and a lot of those being covered by the most athletic defenders in the game.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Please everyone tell me again how overrated Rondo is, how he is utter crap without the Big 3, how the Celtics are done when Pierce and Garnett retire. Please remind me of how deluded I am in calling Rondo a top 5 PG. I want to lol.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

So looking back at the Pacers vs Heat series I just noticed that LeBron picked up a total of 5 fouls in 6 games. Fair and balance though, just like Fox News.

This is because he was mainly guarding Granger, who took it to the rim almost never in that series.

Rondo is def a top 5 pg but he is behind Paul, Rose and Parker for sure imo

Rondo's ceiling is probably the highest of the 4 but his low game is far below those 3 and he has them too often, consistency is his biggest issue

Who do the Pacers have that was getting to the rim and forcing Lebron to foul

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

Arguing foul disparity without analyzing context of game is the mark of a very low IQ basketball fan.


BTW, Celtics getting a no-call Rondo foul there is just the odds evening out that were grossly in their favor for years.



Kevin Garnett has made a living doing illegal screens his entire career. Don't see Celtics crying over their own player abusing the refs no calls.


I'm sure that idiot homer Bill Simmons didn't go crazy on twitter after that victory last year. Hypocrites.

Re: NBA ECF: Heat vs Celtics

The Celtics/Doc Rivahhhhhhs' shock at KG's blatant moving screen against Philly at the end of a game last round tells a lot about the team/region's entitlement complex.
