heck, the mavs were even whistled for more fouls. if the spurs had pulled it out, i'm sure we'd here maverick fans and, uh, owners complaining about how the refs jobbed them... and that would be bullshit, too. the reason why the mavs had more fouls against them is because the spurs attack the rim, and dallas took more jumpshots. plain and simple, end of story. if you attack the rim you draw more fouls. if you shoot a lot of jumpers, you draw less. period.

and even if for some unknown reason you really believe that cuban payed off the refs (and even made them suspend their #2 scorer for game 6 just to not look suspicious), the spurs still had the ball with a chance to win the series at the end of regulation. they missed.



now back to reality... that really was a great, great series, capped off by an epic game 7 in which the two hall of fame players on the court were both at the top of their games. just think about that for a second...

Tim Duncan - 12 of 24 for 41 points, 15 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 blocks
Dirk Nowitzki, 11 of 20 for 37 points, 15 rebounds, 3 assists, 15 of 16 from the line

that was an all time performance... an espn instant classic, so to speak... that we witnessed last night.

THAT was great basketball... and certainly made up for the eye-sore detroit/cleveland game 7, which even watching the highlights of made you want to pull a oedipus and stab yourself in the eyeballs.
I love how every one of Headaches basketball related posts involves eye gouging.

As I mentioned earlier, the Mavs deserved to win the series.

And would probably have done it without some extremely questionable calls.

That is what makes me mad. There was no need for being partial.

In my opinion, Bavetta needs to believe that, when you are like 200 hundred years old and you cannot see anymore, it is time to retire.

look i watched almost every minute of this series. sure, there were bad calls... made against both teams.

there were no calls in the end of regulation yesterday or overtime that made me go "wow... that's a bad call."

you really need to give that up.

Dick Bavetta looks like a giant scab.

well 2nd round is over... we're just a few hours from the conference finals.

i got the heat and mavs advancing, both in 6 games, but i think one of them will go only 5 games... not sure which one though, so i'll just take the safe route and go 6 games for both

Maybe he is the same guy... reincarnated.

He needs to retire. A gazillion years in the league does not necessarily make you a better official, especially when you can´t run, hear or see.

I really hope there's a Dallas-Miami Finals

that would be too great.

The two best teams in the playoffs right now IMO.

The draft lottery is tonight. New York could end up giving a #1 overall pick to Chicago, or we could have shit luck with lottery position just like we have every year in the post Jordan-era until 03 with the exception of 99 when we drafted Brand and promptly traded him away for a cup of urine two years later. 01...only #4 and we passed on Jason Richardson and maybe Pau Gasol to draft Eddy "Why should a 7-footer rebound the ball anyway?" Curry. 02...#2 instead of #1, so we took Jay Williams, who promptly almost got himself killed a year later in a motorcycle accident. For that we passed on Amare. 03 and 04 were fine for us.

I swear I'm gonna be pissed off if this pick ends up #3 or #4. I want top-2, preferably #1.

A couple of fun ramblings today from Bill Simmons:

I don't care if Dallas ended up winning -- that was still one of the defining Dick Bavetta Games of all time. Hold your head up high, Dick. Hold your head up high. Duncan shot about 75 free throws and was allowed to jump over everyone's back on every rebound. You did your job. You still have the touch.

I can't believe Tim Duncan has made it through nine years in the league without committing a foul.
