Do yous guys really believe the stars and home teams don't get the benefit
of the doubt? I used to believe in Santa Claus, too.

I think you and I are on the same team Survival...I loved playing basketball and it is my favorite sport to watch with NFL a close second.

I want to believe in the game also and thier is alot to like about the Spurs (like all the languages spoken in thier locker room).

May the best team win. Cheers

So what is it called when the Lakers beat the Kings a few years back?

Yes Reilly, some benefit of the doubt, and missed calls is different than full on cheating though.

As it says above, it's not like judging a tennis match. Ten really talented people all going different directions at high speed. Don't tell me that isn't hard to keep up with!

Check out Parker at the 2:20 mark of this highlight reel. How many steps did the guy get? The announcers don't even mention it. In my day, that was traveling. At least that's the way it looks to me....

That's what I'm talking about - the stars get to walk, charge, palm the ball,
bad mouth the refs while the blue collar guys get called for looking at
somebody with ill intent. There's a serious double standard and I still
say the home teams get more than the benefit of the doubt.

Wellllll, in that particular case, the Heat were the home team, and lost. Thus the 3-2 lead for the Spurs.

The home team has lost twice in this series.

Look, I prefer great teams over great rock stars, but it seems to me that it's hardly the refs fault that the league and game have evolved to this.

Giant hero worship? Not refs fault.

Enormous salaries? Not refs fault.

Humongo media circus? Not refs fault.

I think most of them are great guys, trying to earn a buck and call a good game.

Like I said. Th NBA needs a new format. The stars should not receive the star treatment. Unless of course they're from another galaxy.

Blown calls......Refs Fault....The NBA should instate no-fault refereeing then the ugliest guy on the bench could get all the blame...How bout Chris " DO DO BIRD " Andersen...He looks like he could absorb lots of blame....Brawwwwk....LeBaron gest to turn the ball over while he rubs it in the defenders face...Goddamn Birdman carries it over and feathers will be ruffled...

Well here goes another one.

Some thoughts

This series is vaguely familiar, a bit similar to the epic Bulls Jazz Finals BITD.

Except it's a junior varsity version. Good ball by today's NBA low standards. Decent enough I can actually watch again.

We have A playmaking team and a team built on solid excecution of set plays. If we were to oversimplify. However the Spurs simply are not as consistent as the Jazz and ..well Miami.. Lebron ain't Jordan..he plays more like Magic cept he isn't as consistant or as competitive.

plus Miami is usually sproadic to non-existant on D unlike the Bulls who were simply vicious on D even on their off nights for shooting (which occasionally occurred)

Consistancy. It's just severely lacking in the NBA..The great teams of old had it. Although to be fair there really were not as many of those as one would like to think they remember.

Hoping for good play on both sides tonight. Lemme see something great.. that's all I ask.

First quarter both teams playing good D and O. Hopefully the whole game will go like this. Both teams playing well. A clutch -play game all the way so far.

Towards the end of the first half the Heat's shooting percentage fell off. Their offense can sometimes go flat real fast. Spurs D taking the offensive inside game away from Heat.
First half action was Tim Duncan. The big guy cruising in.
If he is healthy look for dWade to step up big time in second half.

Heat starting to fold under relentless solid pressure from the spurs.

The Heat are such a bunch of whiners. But the NBA double standard was clearly
shown at the end of the third when James drove and jumped into Splitter's
chest and got the call. Splitter's feet were set, he was standing straight
up, and it didn't matter.

Pop is clearly the equal of Phil Jackson.

Don't count out the Heat that easily.

James drives, trips on Ginobili's planted foot and it's Ginobili's fault?
What BS.

Faced with elimination the Heat are playing with pure heart. Especially LJames.
