(Huffington Post)   Clippers enforcer Reggie Evans got a technical foul last night for, he uh, see, by rule, when a player....You can't.... Uhhh... I mean, he clearly, uhh.... Well he, uhhh, he knows what he did. That's all that has to be said   (huffingtonpost.com ) divider line

can't help but think of Game 3, perhaps 4, whatever it was of the Spurs/Suns series when Amar'e caught two ridiculous ghost fouls against Ginobili early in the game. (No, it wasn't eh Nash/Horry game).

well well farking well.

Tim Donaghy is on various national media outlets after his gambling scandal broke, and what did he say? "a pretty easy way to affect the over / under without actually dictating who wins, is to whistle a team's star early. He has to go to the bench, boom, you bet the under."


TAKE A WILD FREAKING GUESS WHO WHISTLED AMAR'E FOR THOSE FOULS.

Tim Donaghy didn't just violate the integrity of the league and rig some games. There's a good chance he altered the course of the 2007 championship....Here's what I wrote after the third game -- the Spurs were favored by four, with an over/under of 200.5 -- after San Antonio prevailed, 108-101, thanks to Amare Stoudemire playing just 21 minutes because of foul trouble......

Amare Stoudemire is one of the most overrated players of this generation, as good as he has been. He's NEVER carried a team on his back, ANYWHERE. The fact that so many people believe he was Shaq of the Suns, and could dominate everyone every night, just never happened.

He's Zach Randolph with a lot more hype.

Amare is overrated, but he was still an above average player until his knee problems (which is the biggest reason he's in NY and not Phoenix now).

2012-05-12 06:47:34 PM  
As a tentatively-optimistic Nuggets fan (tentative because I've seen this happen before...a lot), I'm not feeling good about the game tonight. I thought the fix was in for a quick series during L.A.'s huge 4th quarter comeback in Game 5, especially the part when the Lakers traveled 3 times EGREGIOUSLY in one possession and the refs were all busy swallowing their whistles.

Then I remembered that Stern is a big fan of ratings-drawing Game Sevens. He was probably rubbing his clammy hands in glee when Kobe came up with the flu before Game 6, knowing that Kobe is no MJ and the Lakers would play terribly (which they did).

So now I'd imagine that Denver will come out of the gates running tonight to try to build up a big lead (like Game 6), except this time there's going to be so many whistles it'll sound like the g*ddamn vuvuzuelas at the World Cup. The Nuggets will be grounded and it'll turn into a Kobe's 14-foot jumper highlight reel.

But here's the thing: Who would basketball fans rather watch play? Chris Paul & Blake Griffin or Marc Gasol & Zach Randolf?

I can't believe the Grizzlies would be a bigger draw than the Clippers, even if they are ranked 1 spot higher. They just aren't as exciting to watch as Lob city, nor are they in one of the biggest basketball cities in the country.
 
2012-05-12 06:50:59 PM

Well, first off, regarding the game, it definitely wasn't officiated like your average home team gets the calls game. It was the opposite.

Now, as far as the fix, keep in mind that Stern has a lot running on this
-Paul trade to the Lakers was nixed by Stern so the Clippers get him instead, people cry foul about it
-Stern looked the other way when Pau Gasol was traded to the Lakers for Kwame Brown and the rights to Marc Gasol, and people still cry foul about that trade(Marc ended up being pretty good, but the trade itself was ridiculous at the time)
-On their respective faces, the LAL/NO trade was a far better trade than the MEM/LAL trade

Basically, in some way, if Memphis wins this series Stern comes out ok because the team he gave Paul to didn't beat the team who he let make a worse trade to boost the Lakers(ratings)
 
2012-05-12 08:12:37 PM  
Oh yeah, there's a huge fix in order to get the Grizzlies in over the Clips. It's not that the Clips, on multiple occasions within the last minute, let a guy get behind them AFTER A MADE SHOT, including on the final play, where they couldn't even get close enough to the player with the ball within three seconds to foul him. The Grizzlies tried to give that game away, but the Clips were too incompetent to take it.

Marc's been a lot better than Pau in the last post season and this one. Seeing as how Memphis had no other pieces when Pau was traded away and there are now pieces to put around Marc I think that trade ended out working out best for both teams involved. The trade might have seemed ridiculous at the time to you but it ended up being a more than fair trade.

The only team that was tough to beat was the Spurs - the Cavs were an easy pushover squad as were the Nuggets.

The Spurs were given three games in the series - the Donaghy game, the suspension game, and in case there was any idea of the Suns forcing a Game 7 and calling MORE attention to the suspension game that f*cked 'em, they made sure Dick Bavetta, home-cooking extraordinaire, was on the court in Game 6 in San Antonio.

San Antonio may have won the series legitimately, but we'll never know because the league didn't allow it to happen.

Dude is still owed at least 1000 technicals for blatant flopping.

Unfortunately, the last one is such a popular one on the internet that it's almost difficult to find more Evans examples, since it earned the flop of the year title.

uh...didn't allow it to happen? it happened, dude. I'm not sure why Suns fans are such crybaby pussies when it comes to this. Leaving the bench was a clear violation of the rules and that rule has been enforced even-handedly on multiple occasions. Should the NBA have changed the rule just once to appease the farking Suns? Then we'd be saying Stern threw the series in favor of the Suns, who were the bigger media draw. The whole "hurrrr NBA is rigged" bullshiat starts with crybaby fans who can't handle when their over-rated team loses because they can't play defense and have no half court game. There have been suspicious games over the years, but looking for coincidence and attributing it to David farking Stern atop Mt. Doom directing an army of corrupt refs in the fight against poor wittle teams like the Suns is asinine, immature, and a display of the poorest type of sportsmanship/ fandom I can think of.

That's funny. Portland just loves the Blazers. I don't know what it's like in other cities, but Portland is rather compact. Everyone just gets on the MAX light rail and streams into the Rose Garden arena. The arena is packed, and we all do the fan thing. This season wasn't so good, but oh well, it was a tough season.

While people like to complain, it's nice to have a team owner like Paul Allen.
