    How ironic, a picture of Joey Crawawful.

    I really hope the owners of the NBA OR SOMEONE PLZ can impeach Stern.

    Watching Game 7 of the Orlando/Boston series, Stern was laughing every time the Celtics got called for a foul. He wants the Cavs to play the Lakers for more ratings on the NBA Finals.

    Yeah I think blogs like ours put too much light on the dark side of the NBA. If the fix is still in they are working it to perfection. Lakers tied and Bron losing. I do think the refs kept Den. in game 4 from the 1st Q to late in the 3rd Q.
    ...I wonder how the media will play it when they see Karl, CB, Melo trump Jackson, Kobe, Gasol.
    And Magic beating Cavs !! We owned the Magic. Man, did JD shoot us in the foot.

    The local market I'm guessing is bigger in Orlando, but Lebron has way more groupies nationwide and worldwide.

    If there is fixing going on then why does almost every Finals series rarely go past 6 games? One would think that if they were going to fix anything then they would try to extend the largest revenue maker of the year.

    I agree with TaS. Don't assume because they fail that they aren't trying. In fact, a lot of time when people try to intervene, they create results opposite of their goals.

    In all honesty, none of these games appear fixed to me. Both sides are getting calls that they wouldn't get if it were truly fixed one way or another. It just looks like bad reffing to me.

    Maybe one ref is fixing it for the Lakers while the other is fixing it for the Magic? That would explain the results pretty well.

    I wonder if Tim Donaughey is Pisces.
    I wonder if he has met anyone that goes ape-s... for Chuck Maggioni.
