Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

There are rigorous ways to think about this problem - consider a referee bias database that tries to analyze every call and non-call in every game and tries to compute by how many points the referees favored a team in each game, based on how the game was called vs how you would expect an average game to be called. Then you could logically compare this game compares to other games. I'm not even that confident that the Lakers were favored at all. I would be absolutely shocked if this game was even remotely an outlier in that regard, based on the evidence presented in this thread and my experience actually watching the game as a neutral. In the absence of such rigorous analysis looking at both sides, just whining about specific calls that went against your team doesn't demonstrate anything and is just a complete waste of time.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

Lol candybar, nobody is saying Denver can’t get a rough whistle. Show me one respected analyst who said the whistle was fair early, you’ll find it with the video clips I asked you to produce.

Agree on Jokics fifth, they swallowed their whistle. Denver was also down big and LAL had >95% equity. That’s a helluva lot different than putting someone in foul trouble early.

Again, you're the one arguing that there's something unusual happening here. It's up to you to provide actual evidence. You've produced:

1. A clip of Jamal and Jokic fouling and having those fouls called.
2. A clip of AD not fouling, probably getting fouled and not having any foul called.

If that's the *best* you and all the Nuggets fans, could produce, I could safely say there probably weren't major reffing issues in this game.

Also, there's no such thing as a "respected basketball analyst" and I don't see anyone with any kind of reputation making a big deal out of this.

Sure maybe rigging is happening - I can't prove you wrong as these types of generic claims are unfalsifiable - but there's no more reason to think that rigging is happening for this game vs any other game. This just seems to be about a few ticky-tack calls that happened while the Nuggets were collectively melting down and committing a whole bunch of fouls in a short span and a bunch of people are just looking at the FT disparity in a single quarter as though that's a particularly meaningful stat in isolation.

Again, this is why your takes are so bad, going back many years. If you can't be even remotely honest in representing what I wrote - I mean, how does what I wrote correspond to "if all you have is evidence, massive majority, and no evidence against, then you’re wrong" - when anyone could just read what I actually wrote just above, why would anyone else trust you to have unbiased takes on anything.

I already explained why your "evidence" is actually evidence against riggage. You already conceded that these were indeed fouls by Jokic and Murray and that AD's contact is not a foul. And somehow that's literally the best bit of evidence the Nuggets twitter was able to cherry pick out of a 48 minute game. If the most blatant examples of the refs favoring the Lakers you could find are for the most part the refs being correct and even include one possible instance of missing a call against the Nuggets, yeah that's strong evidence against your theory.

If I'm a juror at a trial and after hearing only the prosecutor's argument and evidence, that I'm convinced not only that there's not enough evidence to convict, but that the evidence demonstrates that the defendant is almost certainly innocent, what the defendant's attorney would have to say is probably not going to change my mind.

I’m not arguing with you about this candybar, feel free to think what you want. Us and the rest of the nugget homers, which has weirdly turned into most of the thread, will do the same.

I'm a fan of these play-offs.

They seem much more interesting because of (i) no home court advantage and (ii) better preparation. I think those may be some of the reasons why young players are thriving. Maybe the bubble also favours them? (One could invent various 'reasons'.)

I'm just not sure how the NBA could reconcile that with its go to rewarding of teams playing hard through the season - so making those games commercially more valuable (overall). Interesting problem. Probably they just default back to the usual arrangement asap, but, really they should try to evaluate.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

Yeah these bubble and playoffs have been awesome. I can barely tell the difference in the production value, and don’t really notice the lack of crowd going absolutely nuclear. I’m even ok with the low angles provided they don’t do it too often.
