if you think adding up fouls equates an evenly called game then you're fooling yourself.

it's about the type of calls that are made and not made and how they effect the tone and style of the game. this has the most dramatic effect on a game in the first quarter.

it's not really worth getting into...

i'll just say this... i still don't believe the NBA is rigging games, because it's impossible to rig a game... as poorly as that game was reffed yesterday, if ray allen hits a few threes the celtics win, anyways. that being said, i certainly do believe that the NBA puts certain refs with certain styles on certain games with the hops that their style will help extend a series.

this could all be paranoid based on the things that have come out in recent years, combined with my complete hatred of referees in general... but it's too obvious for me to not notice.

the refs in games 1 and 3 have favored the laker style of play. the refs in game 2 favored the celtics. nobody will be surprised if the refs favor the celtics in game 4 and 5; and i'd bet all the pizza on the east coast that if boston is in LA up 3 games to 2, game 6 will have a ref with a tight whistle.

all the NBA has to do to squash these rumors is release the names of the referees who will be doing each game of the series before the series begins.

I have failed to mention that I actually like Van Gundy. Sometimes he goes too far out of his way to make a joke, but whne he keeps it organic he's informative and amusing and very honest. Jackson has become a bit of a buffoon, sadly. I thought he did good work at first.

Heinson's voice drives me berserk and he's, understandably so, quite biased.

I wonder how C-Webb would fare as a color guy. I like him in the studio, not sure how others feel.
I can't stand Van Gundy as an announcer. As you said though, when he's actually focused on the game he can be very informative. I think he can be very perceptive when he wants to. I'd kind of like to see him go back to coaching next year instead of announcing.

Ray Allen makes one easy layup and the commentators are telling us "he's back"?

Not yet. Let's see him make a tougher shot. Either way, he's not going to have another abysmal game.

I have a feeling Kobe's gonna go nuts tonight, though.

Of course, I was referring to the second half re: Kobe.

If I were Doc Rivers, I would be playing Nate Robinson over Ray Allen right now. Someone else can guard Kobe.

Allen's productive game / terrible game ratio these days seems to be about one to ten.

Did I say second half? I meant by the second half.

Who are you and what have you done with Glen Davis?

Gutsy move going with the bench right now, but damn if it isn't paying off for Rivers right now.

I gotta tell ya, I'm pulling for the Celtics, but I'm not a fan of Big Baby's faces.

If there's one thing I hate, it's the stupid mugging that goes on. Bryant, Garnett, Davis... just play the fucking game.

Garnett jawing to himself after a big play is pretty annoying.

I'm not sure how the Lakers are losing this. Bryant and Gasol both doing well, Artest improved, Odom playing well, bench decent...only Bynum has really failed to make a difference and he's had limited time.

Plus, none of the Celtics starters have more than 12 with Rondo held to 8.


Does not compute.
