    Replace LeBron with any player in the history of the game (Jordan, Shaq, Kareem, Wilt, etc...) the result for this series will still be the same. I can't even imagine what prime Jordan would have done in LeBron's shoes tonight after JR runs away from the basket.

    They should have called JR for traveling.

    The NBA needs to change its review policy to just give each team three challenges to challenge calls. Then, only on those challenges can a foul call be overturned. That's my opinion. Once those challenges are used up, then that is it. This idea that we are going to just add a bunch of review policies to the last two minutes and overtime is hogwash. At least put the control over what can possibly get reviewed and overturned with the teams themselves.

    That way...we don't get this "three blind mice" syndrome going on. Lebron was never in the circle. The "three blind mice" had no idea. So, must be reviewed. In this situation, assuming Golden State had saved a challenge...it still would have been overturned. But, the difference is you take that power of review away from the refs...who f**ked it up in the first place and f**k up plenty of stuff before you ever hit the last two minutes and overtime. Obviously, you can't challenge no-calls. So, this doesn't fix that and still leaves the calling of the game way too subjective and error-prone.

    so Lebron will add 10 wins to a 65 win team?

    so how many wins did young KD add to a 73 win team with young Steph, Klay, and Green

    A lot of these talking heads are now bashing the refs.
    Same ones who ignored & dismissed our ref complaints after Game 6 & 7

    It's possible. The Rockets really should've won 66(they sat everyone out vs the Kings in the last game). So let's take that 5 game losing streak when they had a bunch of injuries. Think LeBron doesn't help them win at least 4 of those? No way they would've lost those 2 games to Memphis, even when the Grizzlies were somewhat respectable earlier in the season. He also could've helped them avoid that loss at Detroit and the late season home loss to the Thunder. That's 74 wins right there.

    JVG on the broadcast talked about BS reffing in the GS/HOU series each time the refs were screwing over the cavs

    I'm rooting for GS to sweep the Cavs personally, however the reffing in that game for GS was JUST AS BAD as the reffing was for Houston in those games against GS

    I fully expect the Refs to be on team Cavs tho in some upcoming games. I think they want to make this a 'series'.

    It's just disgusting that the games can be purposefully manipulated by the refs to such a high degree :( and we all as fans and spectators just allow it to continue.

    Refs will be on team Lebron in Ohio, GS fans will complain and then Cav fans will say oh you didn't watch game 1 and 2? Where were you then...and the trend will continue for all eternity.

    He cares about the regular season. He's just not gonna expend all his energy in order to get the best record possible. The dude took the entire month of January off when it was clear he didn't have a team that was capable of playing defense(prior to the deadline deals).

    He wouldn't have to worry about that here. Harden on his own carried a crappy roster to 56 wins in 2015. He knows even coasting and playing at half speed, the Rockets would still win 60-65 games easily.

    Doesn't matter what your idea or my idea of a charge is, we both are not the refs of the game that was happening. My 1st point is that I believe 9/10 that call goes in Lebron favors. My 2nd point is that the way the officials have been calling games, I am not surprised Lebron got the call.

    And btw, I am not rooting for either team. I want both to lose.

    One would think being a Kings fan, you would be suspicious of refs calling anything against a superstar like Lebron ;)
