Great job by the Mavs last night, by the way. And, please, no further complaints about the officiating after yesterday's game.

Most of the calls went SA's way in game 1, and they went the Mavs way in game 2. But how about this, game 1 was won by 2 points, game 2 was a 22 point raping. Hmm, what do you have to say, Acne-Scars Popovich?

Quote:
"That [the officiating] had nothing to do with it," Popovich said. "Everything tonight had to do with the way the Mavs played."

"Everyone together, say it: The Mavs played great and deserve credit," Popovich said. "There are no excuses and no way around it, and if I didn't think they played well I'd say it. But they kicked ass."
Bandwagon is supporting a multiple championship winning team, regardless of if it was since last year, who you have absolutely no affiliation with. I'm not going to start liking the Patriots even though I live in Texas. Expecting someone to win and "cheering" for them are two different things. Grow up and we'll talk? Yeah, I'm being extremely immature. If being immature is being sick of every analyst, and now apparently you, choking on the Spurs' collective nutsack, then looks like I am.

Game 1

Mavs: 24 fouls
Spurs: 20 fouls

Game 2

Mavs: 27 fouls.

Looks like they called it pretty even in Game 2 after all, eh NYC?

As so happens, Manu Ginobili plays for the Spurs. He is from Argentina. I am from Argentina (home of the Olympic champions).



Same exact reason why I support Chicago and, on a lesser degree, Detroit.

So shut up.

And, yes, grow up before jumping to conclusions.

Should the NBA have foregone a Sunday afternoon game, given ABC back a few million dollars and let the Spurs rest till Wednesday, or whenever they felt fresh just cause they won last year's title?

The Cavs had to play the Pissed Ons Sunday under the same schedule, and they had just played back to back OT games against the BulletWizards, but thats kosher cause they aren't defending champs, but the Spursies need their rest?

One of the weakest excuses I've seen on this forum.
Really? So tipping off at 11:30 a.m. your time makes a lot of sense... I am sure that ABC did great with the Cavs blowout on primetime.

final foul totals is not a good statistic to judge officiating... very often when one team has a clear advantage in the foul column refs will find a way to "even it out," giving the appearance that it was an evenly called game right down the line to the laeman.

it's not really indicitive of how the refs actually called the game. it could be... but more often than not it isn't

Headache, I agree with you on the final fouls thing because the first half was certainly pretty biased. I just wanted to show the Mavs got whistled quite a bit too.

If you judge by the tone of his e-mail, he wasn't particularly condescending...

Ok, inmyplace, keep talking.

What time did the Mavs have to tip off for that game?
Oh yeah, same time, and they are also a Texas team and gained no time zone advantage.
The playoff schedule is dictated by TV, everyone knows this. The Mavs had to get to the arena (as the road team no less) in the morning just like the Spursies. The Mavs are just the better team this year and Spurs supporters can't fathom that so have to look for excuses as a preparation for embarassment should they lose.

Some people have way too much money to spend...

Cuban racks up another $200,000 in fines over refs

By JAIME ARON, AP Sports Writer
May 10, 2006

DALLAS (AP) -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been fined $200,000 for his two recent episodes of referee-bashing.

Half of the punishment was for going on the court Sunday to complain during the Mavericks' 87-85 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of their second-round series. The rest was for some critical comments made in a blog entry he posted Sunday under the title, "How to improve NBA Playoff Officiating."

But only after acknowledging that you jumped up to a flawed conclusion.

Rick Pitino was certainly bitter about that. Blamed that for his failure. I mean instead of Duncan he got who...Chauncey Billups (and Ron Mercer ugh), and we know what a bust Chauncey has been as an NBA player.

I like Duncan( and was a big fan of David Robinson), just think the Spurs are not as complete this year as last and recent years, and that the Mavs will win the series.
And would love to see the Clippers make the finals.
