I do wonder what this will do with the officiating for game 6. I could see us taking legit charges and being called for blocking fouls.

Kidd is just lining up the excuses because he feels a Game 6 loss coming up. His first season will be considered a failure(even though BK lost Lopez for the season early on),since this team and it's expensive ass payroll was assembled to compete for a title. Hiring him(an inexperienced coach on any level)will be questioned,putting his future with the Nets in jeopardy.

^ To be honest I felt they should have given Avery Johnson more of a shot.

That is what happens when the Nets are sure that they have lost the series.

Kidd using his status to get the Refs to call a flopping call ... won't be surprised if we get one tonight

I remember when phoenix had spurs beat in the playoffs... but then Horry charged into Nash pushing him out of bounds.. and key guys from Phoenix left the bench and ended up getting suspended for the next game.

I hope something like this don't happen, I can see kidd doing something sneaky

doesn't mean anything in terms of whether or not they'll take his complaints seriously or not
in fact this could just be a front from the NBA to make people think they don't get influenced by "big name" people
it's kind of like a coach purposely getting a technical complaining about the lack of calls during a game to prove a point to the refs and it usually ends with the refs "giving back" some calls

The team that got three 4pt plays in the 4th quarter Wednesday is whining about flopping and refs.

Those 4pt plays were just bad defense from the raps. How is that related to flopping ?

Their bitching about the refs and the flopping. In general they're trying to get more calls. My guess is they get what they want tonight.

To @TOButchCarter's point (timing of events): Raptors have been called for 6 more fouls than the Nets in 4thQ, Nets with 16 more FTA
Quote:
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- A day after his coach went to bat for him, Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson says he agrees with Jason Kidd that he does not get enough calls.

Johnson, though, hasn't complained about it all season. And he won't be complaining on Friday night, despite the fact that his team faces elimination in Game 6 of its first-round Eastern Conference playoff series against the Toronto Raptors.

"I never get calls, man," Johnson said before Friday's morning shootaround. "It doesn't bother me, though. I just try to play through it. At the end of the day, playing to the refs is not gonna make it any easier."

I can guarantee that Kidd told every guy on that team to flop whenever they had the chance to in game 6. In the first half especially there were some feather light touches that resulted in guys crashing to the ground......man kidds a straight dirtbag.

I wasn't watching much basketball when he was a player, so I had no idea on Kidd based on his career as a player.

I have to say I hate him pretty much as well now. Casey had to deal with bad calls from refs a lot but you never eared him whining in the press like Kidd did that one game he didn't get the whistle he wanted...

Seriously, fuck Brooklyn and Kidd as well
