The NBA got roasted on all of the national radio shows yesterday (except Dan Patrick's, but then he's a master hugger). Credibility in sports is a major issue. Interesting points I heard, was less outrage about the foul (which is stupid for reasons further in this post) and more about the backcourt violation and the fact the referees wouldn't discuss the botched timeout seeing as how it was a deadball situation. I'm really tired of superstar calls. I don't care if "that is the way it is". Once you treat one player different, then it becomes ok to treat one team different. One coach different. One teammate different. Eroding any consistency. It's why Danny Fortson fouls out in 16 minutes, and Dwyane Wade shoots 25 free throws. A totally uneven playing field when the differentiator is meant to be talent and effort.
