    I can't really say if the Lakers/Celtics series was pre-destined. But I CAN say that I'm sick of CONSTANTLY hearing things like "The NBA's dream match-up", "the series that everyone hoped for" and "the series of the century".

    The pre-game to the game 4 is going to be one hell of a "Must see tv" because it will be nationally broadcasted. If they don't talk about it then the whole is a joke.

    Donaughy [sp] gave names but they won't be released until they are investigated.
    It's getting juicy now !!
    Yeah, Dett, Stern is singing now. Gotta draw him out.
    The fans of the small market cities will not sit for this.

    If this game wants to protect itself, it must install a self check. Let the coaches have 2 challenges [reviewable] this will a least make any rouge ref work harder.

    I don't buy the grand conspiracy threory but there are some abnormalities that are hard to explain.

    Stern co had a whole year to clean things up and they did nothing. Last year it was the same old beefs and grudges between refs/players and nothing was done.

    This thing is bigger that Stern and it always has been, he just does not get it. Maybe now he will have to address it better than just calling Donaghy names.

    I just want things to be better. Call every game the same and every player as if they were equal, thats not a lot to ask. You should not have to guess how this or that crew are going to call the game. Every game should be called the same.

    You would need two/thirds of the owners to approve the impeachment and right now only the Maloofs and mark cuban are definitely in favor of it.

    FYI > Stern excuses are Screening on ESPN/News too, if you don't have NBA TV:sssh:

    Not sure if this has been posted, but here's the excerpt from the Simmons article from 2002:

    I don't know if that art. made me happy or sad. All I can think about is the Ps being up 10 in the 4th Q game 7 against the Spurs, then let the Spurs rip off 15 straight points.

    Stern is losing this battle. His stance is Don is a criminal and ignore him. He played Bavetta last nite like nothing mattered.

    Personally I think the league is clean but it's unstable. Until Stern acknowledges this I hope his reign crumbles.

    I'm not going to mince words. I think it is corrupt.

    Sheed can handle his own battles.
    Surely you don't mean that.

    Seems like someone by now would have come forward. One would think that at least that Donoghe guy would have told us. [Quote Max]

    Max I heard that interview on Sirius.
    Nader can be so anti-establishment that I love his initiatives. He will not kiss any Big Business azz.
    ML Sports can't be compromised, cause then we can't bet on them. ;>i]

    Stern would be well advised not to blow him off though. Nader is both smarter and a better lawyer than him.

    NBA to disgraced referee: Pay us back for cost of shoes
    -
    NBA wants their money back from Don. $1.4 mil. including travel expenses and free tickets.
    Stern just doesn't get it. He's getting more petty as it goes.
    It's no longer a conspiracy theory it's just dork management.
