Well, if the NBA is scripted, by the logic, Stern made the Lakers get to the finals to help the ratings, so whether they or the Celts win, then the title is meaningless... and if its meaningless, why is everyone getting worked up over it?

The WWE can be fun, you know.


1st, 2nd, 3rd round = 100 million revenue

4th round = 230 million

if necessary* 5th round = 300 million

6th, 7th = 500 million

Think about all those revenues lost if this thing doesn't go to game 7... the NBA is milking this BOS-LAL hype as much as they can. It might not happen next year y'know..

they probably pull out which ever feature is more relevant to the actions of the 1st half. thats the only reason i see for them to have pulled out the rip hamilton mask feature that was years old.

LeBron James FTA against Boston

Gm1 10
Gm2 13
Gm3 12
Gm4 8
Gm5 13
Gm6 15
Gm7 19

The way to get calls is force them to call them. Attack the defense.

How about the Lakers stop the Celts from getting second shots off of rebounds.

I'm fine with the officiating as long as the Lakers get the same lopsided calls on their home floor. Hopefully game 6 or 7 will be called equally.

some of you guys claiming conspiracy or a fix are straight pathetic. do yourself a favor and stop watching a sport that u think is fixed. bad calls? sure, conspiracy? get out of here with that. thats legitimizing all the arguments against the lakers when they got the benefit of the fouls.

Boston is shooting jumpers instead of being aggressive. Typical when they have leads.

How many times can you watch the home team get 10-20 points simply for being the home team and not think this is one giant fix?
