Ownership should be going ballistic on the NBA and if this happens again Casey needs to go nuts and the owners need to pay his fines . I don't see why the small market teams and the Raps don't get together next barginning time and force the league to get rid of the star calls and the cheating . Not only do the large market teams steal all the superstars but then the small market teams get screwed over on calls too .

It was more than a missed call, Deng WON THE GAME ! its a loss for us !

If we finish the season a game back of the playoffs then they should give us the fans who attended that game something of value. I don't expect them to help out the organization because they purposefully screwed Raps over.

Right?


Yes. Yes it is. Doesn't get our wins back. Like saying sorry after drinking and driving and killing my son. A bit extreme, but same thing.

Well this is the same league that let Allen Iverson travel and double dribble incessantly, and let Shaq commit 20 offensive fouls a game, without remorse. Also orchestrated the one-sided Grizzlies-Lakers trade to boot. Stern could care less about competitve balance or fairness. He wants the best stories and the most followed teams as the most successful and filling the broadcasts. Stern is probably besides himself that Durant and Westbrook are stuck in OKC and not on the Knicks. Wasn't it going around from Wojo that Stern is upset at how successful the Spurs are because their stars are boring and the team is in the middle of nowhere? Frankly the Raps, Wolves, Bucks, Kings, Cavs are just NBA jobbers.

Or Maybe Stern can explain how the Wolves (small market) got the book thrown at them over the Joe Smith incident, but the Heat got away with tampering with LBJ and Bosh, through Wade, without even an investigation.

Lol, not really. It's more odd than anything. It's not like that missed call was particularly egregious; in fact, there are far more egregious missed calls made over the course of an average NBA game. It just so happened to occur in a "clutch" situation.

But I'm thinking our management has been particularly vociferous in complaining to the league this season. Not sure how else to explain why we've received TWO league apologies already. Almost makes me feel like we're being patted on the head, like a retarde-d child. I have to say, there is something very odd and unsettling about this phenomenon.

And, frankly, I'm getting sick of Matt and Jack complaining about the reffing. They sound like homer idiots, and they're deluding the fans into thinking that our ineptitude is mostly attributable to our being persecuted by the refs/league (which is clearly not the reason we suck).

Seriously though - this sh** is ruining my love for the game. It's no wonder this league is a laughing stock among knowledgeable, non-basketball loving sports fans. It's just... extremely unprofessional.

I've always wanted to get into soccer or football.... please don't flame me. This is really how I feel. :(

This is a fact Anderson got pushed out of bounds no call by the refs and gives philly a chance to win the game.

These kind of admissions by the NBA are worse than meaningless, they're detrimental to our team.
Look at everyone walking off the court with close to a minute left in OT. They've given up, and they're blaming the refs. I liked it better in the late 4th when we were diving on the floor to save this game.

We think players don't want to come here without a premium on their salary because we are in Canada. I don't think that is it. Players, with these non-consequential apologies as proof, are not coming here because they know Raptors players are not on a level playing field.

Look at the body language of our players. They've had enough.

i'm not even mad at that bump. We can't inbound a ball properly with two attempts and the entire court going for us.
