*Spell Cheat without Heat
Says the guy with a Kentucky avatar
Scarecrow, I really respect you and like you as a poster, but go rant out on facebook. Yes the NBA might have wanted a game 7, but don't you? I want as much basketball I can watch before I'm forced to watch baseball.
I am not saying anyone cheated. I am not saying I don't want a game 7. But if you're implying that I should be okay if the NBA did infact did cheat, just to get a game 7 for their own ratings, when the Spurs rightfully should have won? Yeah I do care. Now I am not saying that is the situation at hand, but I am saying if their was physical proof that the NBA was cheating to make the Heat win OF COURSE I would be angry. Game 7 or not, the game should be played properly. Just sayin.
David Stern nor anybody from the league office missed those free throws by the Spurs nor did they hit that three by Ray. Of course I'd be outraged if I knew this game was fixed a la Kings Lakers, but there were bad calls both ways and the home team is always going to get the benefit of the doubt, I'm not a Heat fan and would love to see Duncan match Kobe's 5 rings, but I rather see it in game 7 is all.
There was missed calls throughout the end of the game on both ends...it happens. Miami won that game with great grit and determination especially from Bosh who blocked Parker and Greens jumpers late in that game and got the offensive rebound and assist on the game tying shot by Allen.
It always happens is anyone really surprised? It's sports entertainment. This kind of thing always happens which is why the game and the champion is so predictable. That's why the NCAA tournament is much better.

Game 6 2002 Western Conference Final Sacramento Kings vs Los Angeles Lakers
didnt a ref come out and admit that the NBA told them to throw games so Lakers could win?
Sounds like Tim Donaghy to me
Its an unspoken code in the NBA playoffs that you "let them play" at the end of close games. Its been like that since 1965. Yeah, Manu got tagged a little on that final drive, yeah bosh got a little of Danny Green blocking that last three. Big deal. if you want to nitpick, Lebron dealt with plenty of contact and got no whistle on his turnovers at the end of regulation. What made the Kings-Lakers and Miami-Dallas (2006) so egregious was their deviation from that code. calling phantom fouls.Tonight, that was just physical basketball. Remember when Manu elbowed Lebron in the throat? in the regular season thats a Flagrant all day. you probably werent complaining about the officiating when that was only called a loose ball foul.
That said, Lebron isnt the story. Ray Allen reminded everyone he's still the best shooter alive. Ray Allen won that game. Dude is a G. Jesus Shuttlesworth.
this game was nothing compared to the Games the Lakers were given, i remember that Kings series, and it was obvious, even to Laker Lovers that they were being helped.
Manu travelled at the end anyways. Yeah he got hit, but he also took 3 blatant steps.
