Thanks,

The NBA Finals is Rigged. The Miami Heat take game 4 over the Oklahoma City Thunder

20 06 2012

The Miami Heat win game 4 104-98 over the Oklahoma City Thunder thanks to the officials.
I’ve never been a person that bought into conspiracy theories or things being rigged. But after this game obviously being tooled with by the referees and with what happend at the NBA Draft Lottery even i’m starting to buy in.
Let’s face it, America wants the Thunder to win to keep the hated Heat and LeBron from winning a ring, but at the same time LeBron is the face of the NBA, and how bad would it look for his legacy and the NBA if he never got a ring? Cue the NBA getting involved.
Everytime a Heat player was touched, especially LeBron and Dwyane Wade, a foul was called. Usually in the NBA Finals the referees let most things go, but in 2012 they call everything one-sided to the benefit of the Miami Heat. The Thunder try to draw the same fouls or even get bulldozed by their opponent and still get no whistle. Even ESPN’s NBA Analyst Tim Legler got involved on Twitter (@LegsESPN).
“OKC cannot get the benefit of the doubt on any calls. Too many touch calls for the NBA Finals.”
“Mia is playing great. Make no mistake. But it’s getting ridiculous how few calls they (Thunder) get on similar plays to what Mia gets. Obvious.”
When someone attacked Legler for saying he was just mad the Thunder wouldn’t win in 6 games like he predicted (as did i) Tim responded by saying “ I don’t care who wins. Dude change that tune. I’m just saying what I’m seeing.”
The Heat are a great team with great superstars. They earned their spot in the Finals, but make them work for it. The NBA is serving the championship up on a platter for the Heat and it’s completely ridiculous.
The Thunder earned their right to be where they are but are being treated like 2nd place in the Miss America Pagent, “they will get theirs, just not yet.” I wonder what Timothy Bradley and Manny Pacquiao think about the NBA Finals?
Even with all of this the Miami Heat barely pulled out the last two games. If James Harden and Russell Westbrook played smarter the Thunder would be up 3-1 in this series no thanks to the officials. I’m thinking of even boycotting the rest of the series. I’m disgusted to even write about the NBA at this point, completely pathetic.
I expect for Tim Donaghy (Referee that was busted for throwing games) to make an appearance



Celtics Devasted…

31 05 2012

MIAMI – The general manager of the Boston Celtics was trying to understand how LeBron James could get to the free-throw line those 24 times, and so Danny Ainge stood in the hallway recreating a clear-path foul call for the NBA’s vice president of referee operations, Joe Borgia. Ainge slid his feet, and tried to show how the Celtics defender had reached around to the Miami Heat star, how they were far too close to the rim for that call.

“How?” Ainge asked him.

They did some kind of a dance here late Wednesday night, Borgia and Ainge, the NBA official delivering his explanation, and Ainge, the ultimate contrarian, challenging the premises. And hey, how could Paul Pierce foul out again? How could the Heat get to the free-throw line 47 times? These were the things on Ainge’s mind, and there would be no satisfaction coming out of here for these Celtics, no solace out of an epic effort and a historic performance out of Rajon Rondo. Ainge was persistent, polite and Borgia finally relented that he’d watch the film of the Heat’s 115-111 Game 2 overtime victory.

Rajon Rondo earned high praise from LeBron James after Miami’s victory in Game 2. (Reuters) “I’m sure we missed five or six calls somewhere,” Borgia said.



I vote the Bucks get a first round bye.

27 04 2010

I vote we give the Bucks the 1st round series against the Hawks just so we can see this again!




NBA Broadband is a Joke!

27 01 2010

Still can’t watch a whole game on NBA Broadband. Always starts to lock up toward the end of the game. Just plain crap! Just like the referees the NBA can’t figure out how to get it right!



NBA Broadband still SUCKS!

26 01 2010

I guess I didn’t learn my lesson. I bought League Pass so I could watch my favorite team and it is suppose to include NBA Broadband. NBA Broadband is the worst product ever, only thing worse is the referring in the NBA. DO NOT pay for this feature, they can’t even deliver a whole game, you just might watch the whole game just to be denied the last few minutes of the game.

NBA Broadband is a joke!
NBA Broadband is a waste of money!
NBA Broadband is garbage!
NBA Broadband Blows!
NBA Broadband Sucks!

OK lets see if google can get this out to everyone and hurt the NBA where it means the most!



NBA, refs far from deal

26 08 2009

The NBA’s current contract with its 60-odd referees runs out next week and the sides appear to be far apart on a new deal, according to sources with knowledge of the negotiations.

Sept. 1 is the expiration date of the current five-year pact. One source told ESPN.com on Tuesday that — with the league proposing an across-the-board reduction to the referee budget of an estimated 10 percent — the impasse might not be resolved before the start the 2009-10 season.

As of “right now,” according to the source, existing NBA referees “will not be working preseason [or the] regular season.”

Another source with knowledge of the talks, however, countered by questioning the referees’ willingness to hold out in a depressed economy if it reaches the point that the league threatens to impose a lockout.

NBA Broadband Sucks!

8 03 2009

Don’t bother signing up for NBA Broadband. They promise to make all game available but blackout the best games. Even better they make impossible to locate whether or not a game will be blacked out prior to the game.

If you want to watch an archived game you have to click on a link that “HAS THE SCORE ON THE LINK” no need watching a game that you already know the ending score. Don’t bother trying to send feedback because just like the refereeing in the league they really don’t want your opinion. The Feed back link doesn’t work, what a surprise.

Save your money to buy drinks at a nice cozy sports bar!

NBA Broadband Sux!

Lets see if this gets a response from the beloved league!
