Don't forget the "referee" factor. Although not as bad as Game 1, there were still a few terrible/phantom calls that either were either called against W's, or weren't called on the Spurs...e.g. late in the 4th, Thompson was about ready to go up for a rebound on a Spurs miss and was blatantly pushed in the back which knocked him out of the way, Spurs got the rebound, no call. But I do admit I was absolutely shocked that there was a stretch of 3 or 4 consecutive Duncan shots in the 3rd Qtr that were either blocked or altered, and they actually (and correctly) swallowed the whistle
It's all about $, it is in the NBA's best financial interest that these games go past game 4 and preferably (sp) all the way to game 7!
That first game was fixed all the way, but that is basketball. I hear basketball fans say it all the time "they are letting them play", what does that mean? The normal rules of the game don't apply? So at any moment a ref can choose to call the game correctly, or choose to mis calls on one team in the name of "letting them play"...
I am a Warrior fan and have been my whole life! Chris & Tim burger anyone?
But I absolutly hate the NBA!
Jordan goes to Washington; closed door draft lottery just happends to grant the Wizards the #1 pick! Labron coming out of Akron Ohio, Cleveland just happends to get the 1st pick, it is stunning how the Warriors never get the first pick even with over 30 years of losing. The NBA is a 4-5 team league with a bunch of bottom feeder teams around to snatch up a loyal fans $. Looks like our new owners are turning the tide on the currupt NBA though, LET'S GO WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!
