    That's fine. In fact, even better.

    He should be called out by everyone.

    Like I said, investigate his ass.

    Compile all of his flagrant misdeeds.

    Make the tape public.

    Force the league to answer the media.

    In retrospect, I wish both the Rockets and CP led Thunder boycotted this game as soon as Scott Foster was announced as the referee for this game.

    That would have forced the league to take action.

    Well, there's this:

    Maybe the league bailed him out by forcing him to become their Fixer.

    COME ON MAN

    This wasn't just a Scott Foster move, this was a NBA move.

    The Rockets are banned in China (a huge market, especially a huge market for Lebron).. You can't be having the Lakers Semi-Final games banned in a market as big as China can you?

    The NBA right now is very sad that Houston pulled it off

    NBA fans that want to watch the matchup will find a way to watch the games, ban or no ban.

    The problem with that call was Paul was not involved in the play or even trying to get free. Harden had his hand on Paul's hip, but Paul wasn't trying to move. He wasn't hindering him at all. How you call that with 2 seconds left in a game 7 is beyond me. Harden did not cause Paul any hardship on that play.

    Chris Paul realizing his presidency has limits when learning he can't get Scott Foster fired.

    Thea Harden foul call was as egregarious as I’ve ever seen and obviously trying to get okc a two point shot that can win the game. But the Gordon charge was almost as bad because they actually got challenged and reviewed it and still gave it to okc. Gordon was going sideways from right to left and Gallinari just fell backwards.

    Does anyone have a clip of the one foul that he called on Harden with like 5 minutes left in the fourth? That one was total bullshit but also kind of funny. Foster ran out onto the court jumping around and waving his arms like some kind of theater performance. It reminded me of those baseball umps with the over the top emphatic strike 3 calls.

    The Gordon charge call was fair, to me. I don't have sympathy for players that jump in the air with no place to go and throw an errant pass. Gordon does that a lot.

    The touch foul on Harden was ridiculous, but I'm not sure that Foster made that call.

    games 4 through 6 fts: okc 69, rockets 36 (not nice). that's almost comical. and then the game where they called the stepback travel, a ticky tack inbound foul with a 2 point game in game 7. amazing we won this. i almost don't think it can be much worse against the lakers. people tend to take notice if a team shoots single digit ft's. maybe the lakers will just get 40+ a game.

    Anyone else got a kick of the announcers giving the refs credit for getting that back court violation call off of that Adams save correct?

    I was laughing my ass off.

    Anyone that knows back court rules would have been able to call that on the first go.

    Adams saved it (controlled saved), and no one touched it except an OKC player in his own half.

    That is exactly what a backcourt violation is.

    Good job Ref! Yay!

    He tried his best to **** us. What a bastard. CP3’s incessant whining too. I can’t stand that ****. I didn’t even care for it when he was with us.

    It's ironic because CP3 call out Scott Foster in his post game interview for not being fair to OKC. o_O

    I found it here if anyone wants to see it. What a load of ****. He makes this call from the opposite side of the court? Absolute joke.
