You know what this reminds of?

The Mavs fans whining about when they had their asses handed to them by Wade and the Heat.

THE REFS REWARD THE MOST AGGRESSIVE TEAM. PERIOD.

The Raps looked scared last night, so they didn't get the calls.

The Raps are also a borderline playoff team and the Celtics are the Champs.

They SHOULD get the benefit of the doubt.

Stop crying. Life is unfair.

The players should be as pissed as we are. If I was CB or JO I would've been ejected by now for the gay calls the refs are making. It's like they aren't watching the same game we are. Also I thought the refs could use replay. How come they never use that. It should be like the NFL, teams should be able to tell the ref to see that play again. That would be more fair. DAMN REFS :angry:

No player should have the sort of influence on an official that KG had last night. That was a disgrace.

Who the fuck is crying? I am spitting fucking flames here, albeit virtual ones.

Seriously, fuck off. The game was called unevenly and there is nothing in the rule book that states that more aggressive team, let alone the champs, gets the benefit of the doubt.

No, I will not fuck off Mike. Now that you're all riled up I intend to keep you that way so that I'm not alone in my insanity.

The NBA has been called this way for DECADES.

You don't remember the shit that the Spurs could get away with?

Or the Pistons?

Or the Lakers?

Or the MJ-led Bulls?????


This game was NOT some kind of all-world, never-seen-before travesty.

The Raps could have won the game if they didn't turn into pansy-ass bitches in the 4th Q. Period. Full stop. End of story.

Did anyone on the raps show any balls and take a technical foul??? If the reffing was so bad why the hell didn't they??? Why didn't Sam get himself thrown out of the game? Why didn't Chris blow up and tell the refs to get KG the fuck OFF of him?

The raps DESERVED to lose that fucking game and I will NOT sit here and listen to people blame the refs for the team's failings.

The Raps aren't just going to be GIVEN respect. They have to TAKE it. And EARN it.

The Celtics played more aggressively in the first half, in terms of going to the basket. They didn't get calls then. There was nothing tremendously aggressive about PP's drives in the 4th. And they got the calls then.

And I'm sorry, but humans can't stop being human, no matter how much they get paid. I'm not suggesting that being a ref in intimidating circumstances means giving in to the whims of the crowd, but there is a thing called the subconscious that plays a role in making decisions, and that doesn't involve analyzing whether a robot would decide things differently.

I wasn't pissed about the uneven calls (I am used to that) as much as I was pissed about showboating and those two calls they've OVERRULED on Garnett's bequest. Not only did they not T him up for taunting - now they are taking directions from him? That's something new even for this league, you'd have to agree.

Yeah, that was a bit much... I agree.

I will NEVER understand why refs let themselves be intimidated by players lol... it's not like they're going to start beating the shit out of you out there on the court so what the hell are you afraid of???

Okay enough, refs were lousy, Celts won, Raps lost, game's over. The world has not ended. Now let's beat some Philly ass.
