    That is applied to Haslem and bench players but not Curry's...

    That's the problem with this league. Kerr's big reason for Curry getting robbed is "He's the MVP!" so if you are the MVP you should just have all the rules bent in your favor...

    Steve Kerr saying that the MVP of the league should get better treatment shows just how much of an entitled b**** he is.

    How about everyone plays by the same rules, from MVP down to Corey Brewer. Wouldn't that be nice?

    I was thinking the same thing. It would be life changing sell on ebay, possibly topping $100k easily I kid you not.

    Please let the Cavs win Game 7. For the good of the league and the game, this Warriors team and their "mystique" needs to go away. For the Rockets, they need a Cleveland victory if they have any hope of acquiring some needed free agents this offseason. You can sell a Horford/Conley combo on the Rockets not being much worse than the Cavs or other teams with just enough talent to beat the Warriors.

    I missed the game as I was watching USA soccer - but without Bogut GS is much worse defensively, and are a lot more vulnerable.

    Right. Probably just a huge fine and move on. Anything short of running in the stands and punching a fan will not get Lebron or Curry suspended for a finals game, especially a game 7.

    Bogut is out for the rest of the playoffs after the injury he had last game.

    There was a recent article about a Curry mouthpiece that they estimated going for ~$5K. A lot for a Cleveland resident for sure.

    I'm not sure what game Kerr was watching. Foul #5 (if I'm counting right) had Steph go full body against Lebron (no call, but could have been called), then reached all the way across Lebron's body (basketball fundamentals no no), with contact to the chest and, with his hand, hit the ball. In what universe is it a "bad call" to whistle that.

    And on the sixth, it looked like he was trying to foul out. Lebron got in his head tonight.

    His wife being a total basket case cannot help. I think it's honestly affecting him.

    wait so is Kerr saying MVP of the league should be officiated differently? A foul is not a foul?

    tell me how's this any different from ron artest running into the stands and hitting a fan?

    why we all think green's ball-kicking act should've warranted a suspension? unsportsmanlike conduct, is it not?

    what about curry's act tonight? is it not the same - unsportsmanlike conduct?

    of course, to understand the meaning of "sportsmanship", you have to think all the pro leagues are, still, sports - no matter how they've been urbanized in recent yrs.

    NBA is about adjusting. Coaches adjust. Players adjust. The referees adjust the way they blow the whistle as well. I expect either Lebron or Irving in foul troubles and warriors to shoot 40 free throws in the final game 7.

    Yep. *** the Warriors. I hope bron scores 70 pts on Sunday and his teammates 50 while holding warriors to 110.

    "3 of the 6 fouls were incredibly inappropriate calls... I'm happy he threw his mouthpiece, he should be upset." - Steve Kerr
