I agree there's some corruption in NBA, but gibbsreport makes some excellent points. EVERY sport has SOME form of corruption at one level or another.
Refs can be gotten to. They're human.
But the players and coaches aren't in on it, and I do believe the corruption isn't to the level where it's been in the past.
And if it were, gibbsreport says it best. Why would the Pistons and Spurs be winning titles? Wouldn't Boston and LA be in every Finals? How would the Magic ever get there?
How are the Bucks so good? Because they just ARE.
Yes, corruption and cheating exists, but not to an extreme level. The Mavs are getting BEAT by the Spurs....so where's the cheating there?
You might need to watch some regular season NBA games because the calls in the playoffs don't change from regular season to post season. I know it's hard to watch Golden State but maybe check out the games on TNT & ESPN
Dude are you serious? "Do you think the NFL like the Cheatriots in the S.B. every year?" That question got your smart card ripped bro!... Please!... The NFL loves the Cheatriots... Tom Brady is a poster child for the NFL every time someone on ESPN talks about him like Colin Cowherd.. They want to have his children! and fondle his privates they love this guy so much!... Please the NFL creams their pants when the Cheatriots make the S.B. or the Colts or The Steelers... come on dude you sound unreasonable now. I know all sports are corrupted like MLB for example: My A's in 2000 Vs the N.Y. Pankys... When Jeter made that back hand throw and Posada made that tag at home plate... Well I got news for you that he never tagged Giambi but they knew the Panky's lose that game and there series was over!... That was the most important game and play of the entire series and it was in the umpires hands.... or how about "The Tuck" game just watch my video ... Copy and paste and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHZi8HhhfGs and tell me the NFL didn't rip the Raiders season away here!... cause they did!... even Cheartiot fan knows this.... By the way I am a Sacramento Kings fan... Game 6 2002 Vs Lakers FIXED... 20 foul shots called in the 4th qtr? and the Kings still lost by a couple points!.. BULLSHIT and a FRAUD and you fucking know it!
Ok so basically you proved my point by giving all those examples in other sports that YOUR teams got screwed. I ran out of time and wasn't going to record the fancast so had more to say about the patriots. Get over it just because your team lost doesn't mean the refs were under orders. Again why would the NBA ever want a Pistons-Spurs finals, Rockets-Magic. I can go on and on with bad matchups in the past. Wouldn;t the Knicks have won a championship or at least been to the finals more then twice in the last 20 years if the fix was on?
Those games you said... well the Spurs were so good that the REFS couldn't take the game away except how about the West Conf. finals when Fisher was allowed 2 seconds when he had like 0.7 seconds to make a shot to win?... the Spurs should of had 2 more than they got now...Why? The NBA is A FRAUD and you know being a Bulls fan... Look at that play against Utah when M.J. Shoved a player out of the way to make the shot to win... PLEASE Utah Jazz should of won that Finals and you know it but because M.J. was who he is they let it go... There will be matchups that the NBA will be pissed about cause the team is so great that they overcome the Crowd,TEAM, and the REFS... So your argument is WEAK buddy!... Of course teams will be great enough to over come the corruption but most of the time the NBA gets there way and dictates games... i remember when M.J. played you breathed on the guy and you get a whistle... You need to get over the fact that the NBA and Sports is a FRAUD... not real even competition, As for the TUCK game... What you think that was a incomplete pass?... DUDE you know nothing about football at all!.... it was the year of 9-11 and what a more fitting way then to send the Patriots to the S.B. to make the whole country feel Patriotic... They had a opening and took it on some BULLSHIT rule they had to spend 10 minutes digging up... Plus they knew the Raiders would of gone on to win the Super bowl that year and NO ONE wants to see that... So they took it from us... Don't tell me to get over it cause I NEVER will... you don't understand cause you don't give a fuck about it... just as long as your team wins right?... SPORTS and the NBA especially is a FRAUD!!!... CASE CLOSED!
Are you nuts? Go youtube some of the non-fouls the Bad Boy Pistons committed on Jordan back in the late 80's early 90's. I can understand how you felt you have been screwed over and over again but really I doubt the Raiders were beating the Rams that year. My argument isn't weak you as a fan have had some heart breaking loses over the years and the only way your warped mind can deal with it is my assuming everything is fixed.
Don't you think they would have liked a New York team in the Super Bowl after 9/11. Shouldn't the Jets have beaten the Raiders that year. and don't give me that BS how some teams are so talented they can overcome the fraud.
