I Never Thought I'd See the Day...

...that Lebron James would get called a) for an offensive foul B) his sixth of the game C) in the final minute D) of a tight game E) in the conference finals

This gives me hope for the future of NBA refereeing

That was an unbelievably bad

That was an unbelievably bad call, and I hate LeBron. That call summed up how horrific these refs have been all night. That and the shot clock blown call... smh.

The ref called tripping.

The ref called tripping. Lebron stepped on his foot. That's a foul. The bad call was the shot clock violation that led to a 4 point swing

Wade has lost any benefit of

Wade has lost any benefit of the doubt call because he typically gets every call even though all he does is flop and argue like the foul when someone hit the ball into his face and he acted like the guy had smacked him in the face. You never see lebron try to get cheap fouls on the other team so I feel for that call on him.

Um

I'll believe that if it's in a game seven. I think the NBA would love to showcase LeBron and insert team playing LeBron that's not a major market.

IMO. These refs handed Indiana the game. The Lebron call, the Dwade travel that wouldn't be called 80% of the time. And at the end of the 3rd quarter Hill pushed off but he got a 3 point play. And then Lebron got a push off call with 2 seconds left in the backcourt which led to a Stephenson 3. Unbelievable.

To be fair, that blown shot

To be fair, that blown shot clock play almost swung the momentum to Miami.

You gotta call that travel.

You gotta call that travel. It would have been too much of an advantage for the Heat if they let Wade get away with that.

It's almost like Stern told the refs to extend the series because the WCF was a sweep.

You have to learn to beat the refs sometimes, Miami isn't used to that.

that was one of the worst

that was one of the worst officiated games i have ever seen, imo. i saw travels that were uncalled, i saw fouls that werent fouls, i didnt see the ball touch david west... etc etc. you get the point, overall beyond horrific. in the end though, i believed it all evened out.

Lebron stepped on his foot

Lebron stepped on his foot and deliberately tripped him. Even the Inside the NBA crew admitted it was a foul after they saw the replay. How was that a bad call?

I think the Heat have

I think the Heat have probably gotten their fair share of calls. Both offensive foul calls were questionable, but they can't give the Heat the benefit of the doubt every time. The officiating was bad both ways too.

The worst part about that

The worst part about that call was that it came on the play right after Lebron hit that clutch 3 to cut the deficit back to 2.

As a neutral, I was pissed that the refs robbed me of a reallyyy exciting finish to that game.

not a travel

that wasn't a travel especially in the nba, these refs are trash, I'm not even a heat fan and I just don't understand the inconsistency of these refs.

wade

it was just weird seeing wade go so slow on that step back... I'm not sure if it was a travel or not but he did pause a little bit

He stepped on his foot, it

He stepped on his foot, it was a foul. I didn't expect them to call it, but you can't say it was a bad call just because of the context.

And please don't say the referees handed the Pacers the game when freaking Shane Battier continues to draw ridiculous fouls by flopping all over the place and getting rewarded by the referees.

Also, yeah, the bad shot-clock violation was a doozy.

Heat lost the game because Bosh went out with that ankle injury more than anything. They were rolling before that happened.

Also, I'm more impressed that they actually gave Lebron a technical - dude gets away with WAY too much whining.

We both say it was a foul and I get negged for it and you get upvoted...lol sometimes I don't understand why people use the points system the way they do.

But I do agree that Bosh rolling his ankle probably hurt them more than anything.

Sometimes the refs have to just let the players play. Jeez, swallow the whistle every now and again.

Right call..

It was a foul. He stuck his leg out and tripped Lance Stephensen. So it wasn't so much a moving screen...it was a trip. And it was a foul.

That's a tough way to foul

That's a tough way to foul out, but it's clear LeBron tripped him on that screen. It's right there in the instant replay guys. It's a foul.

As a fan, watching this series has actually made me feel a lot better about the NBA. There have been some bad/missed calls on both sides, BUT I feel like they've called this series equally. Like I don't feel like the Heat are literally getting every single benefit of the doubt call.
