    I am not an expert on officiating but I have a feeling we got robbed in game 7 of WCF.

    How many of 9 calls in this video are correctly judged by the author of the video, that is how many times the refs were wrong ?

    @BimaThug @heypartner @Mathloom would like to hear your call on these 9 calls.

    We were robbed. Game 6 wasn’t that far off. Just because ppl don’t talk about it doesn’t mean it didn’t happened. It’s the new version of the Kings vs the lakers in the late 90s all over again. Refs were clearly swallowing their whistles and calling bs ones against the Kings.

    Those fouls not only robbed us of those points but they also stopped our run. When we had the momentum to go by 20. Even Chris Webb made a remark about us not being up by that that it was good for gsw. We were probably gonna be leading by 25 at least then the refs stopped our momentum. And they also didn’t call those fouls creating our players to get frustrated and specially harden. They lost their focus too. They got away with a lot of fouls and we got called for touch fouls or some weren’t even fouls.

    We will get our revenge I’m sure of it. And not even the refs will be able to stop us.

    Also funny thing is the continuation rule only affected us. Because I remember the refs calling 2 or 3 shots as shots but harden couldn’t go to the frethrow line for 3 because of the new “harden” rule. I mean if ur gonna call it call it both ways.

    NBA is clearly building their dynasty to please their huge Warriors fanbase. No one outside of Rockets fans will remember that series.

    This is why Adam Silver said he's happy with the way the league is now, with how stacked the Warriors are.

    I was at that game.

    Literally couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I thought I was way too drunk and high, and that there was no possible way the refs were missing what was happening.

    I mean, literally the most baffling sequence of reffing I’ve ever seen. These refs should be liable for this, and at the very least, should be barred from ever reffing the NBA again.

    Game 6 was worse. We were actually making our outside shots that game, and the officiating COMPLETELY changed after halftime. All of a sudden all our drives to the paint were no-calls at the same time that GSW implemented a Jerry Sloan “they can’t call it every time!” Defense.

    Honestly any bullshit team with a celebrity player can do that. If the NBA wants to institute a “let the boys play” loosely officiated game, then be consistent for the whole damn game, don’t just enter into Ghost protocol at halftime.

    Like Bill Burr said, it’s time for us to emotionally just, let go. Santa Claus and the tooth fairy are really your parents. Baby Jesus didn’t moonwalk on water while crapping out shrimp for all the poor people to eat. Her t*** are fake. The NBA is rigged, about at the same level as the WWF. Players are trying as hard as they can on both ends, but there’s always an agenda being parroted down from on high.

    I really believe Adam Silver called the Referees and was angry at the Referees during Halftime. Told them Golden State Must win this series or you're fired. Referees given same instruction from Adam Silver before Game 7 Golden State wins or you're fired. Scott Foster of course being a scumbag he elected himself to screw Chris Paul, slowly torturing his team while Chris couldn't do anything watching helplessly from the bench. I was so pissed thinking about not watching the NBA again. Gambling, Illuminati are behind this too.

    To me it seems like blatant cheating. I don't have the BB IQ to trust my own judgment on this, but it seems that others agree.

    Here's the part I'm most baffled by though. If it is so blatant, why doesn't someone do something? Anyone in the Rox organization or even a different team. Or previous players, or anyone with the power to at least raise awareness. Not because "the Rockets should have won", but because who wants to play in a biased league? Especially for those truly passionate about the game. It just doesn't make sense to me.

    How can you watch that and say the NBA isn't invested in certain teams winning? That is 100% proof the league did not want the Rockets in the finals. They assumed GS would kill us and the series wouldn't be close. But it turned out we figured them out and Daryl Morey knew what he was doing from the beginning. It's really sad. GS has 4 superstars, the media AND the NBA on their side. Not ONE person from the media mentions how we got robbed when they say "Nobody can beat Golden State??".

    Is there something we can do? Like for real, let's be smart and enact a plan on social media to bring heat on the refs, the NBA. Scott Foster.

    I think if we had a solid gameplan, we've got enough members who have enough circles and social media presence to at least start something. We need to call for Scott Foster's job, and if he isn't we need people willing to lose their ticket to throw cokes, beers and popcorns at him next season. Like, they can cancel the game, they can escort the entire arena out or Scott Foster doesn't get to hold a whistle in Houston, TX again.

    Those first 2 3s are indisputable fouls not called. Sideline refs watching the on-ball play also. A little surprised the crowd wasn't into giving the refs an earful - only shock, no chants. That was some A-grade material to start the chants. Scott Foster's record with us just keeps getting worse and worse. A lot of those missed calls are because Mike Callaghan, known for holding the whistle and "letting the players play", is the one assigned to sideline (1st half) and baseline (2nd half). The call that waved off Harden's 3 in the 2nd half was called by Scott. The contact on KD was marginal compared to Harden's 1st and 2nd in that video. I'm cool with all this because we bout to get Melo.

    the nba has always been rigged. its not scripted like wrestling. the players, coaches, and teams aren't in on it. but the league will have the refs lean a game or a series towards the side that will earn the most money for the league. how do you think lebron made 8 straight finals? half was a weak east, but he had some help along the way, and it wasn't from his teammates.

    if you want to win without being the most popular team, you have to be so much better than who the nba wants that you can beat them and the refs. the rockets WERE that much better than the warriors IF cp3 and mbah were healthy. we couldn't withstand their injuries AND the refs being against us.

    here's how deep our popularity problem goes:

    1) we don't play a style that most nba fans like. iso, defense, fouls. its not what the nba wants.

    2) we don't have stars that are well liked or respected by most nba fans. most fans literally hate and bash harden and cp3. even after handing the mvp award to harden anthony anderson says "i guess you dont need to play D to be MVP." the disrespect is unbelievable. first, he did play solid D. second, that's not the time to diminish his accomplishments. third, he was no worse on D than curry but everyone loves curry so lets not talk about his lack of D. in fact the rockets shut him down for much of the series and the nba world made excuses of him being injured, even when he said he wasnt. when harden has a bad game, look he never performs well in the playoffs!

    3) we don't have a coach that anyone takes seriously. sure he ran the best offense of all time, AND allowed some D for the first time in his career, but the nba world still says "its a gimmick. inflated numbers because of 7 seconds or less, and too many 3s." when we actually play a slow half court style offense. the over-reliance on the 3 is a thing tho.

    4) the nba world doesn't even like morey. they don't like thinking that nerds can outsmart ex-players and ex-coaches at managing a team. they love thinking that he believes he's smarter than everyone but can never build a championship team.

    if you want to win you have to make decisions based on TV ratings so the nba needs you in the finals! here's my 4 step solution and all of us will hate it:

    1) replace MDA with becky hammon. omg can you imagine the media fawning over us for that decision?! the lakers and warriors would be so pissed at how much attention and praise we would steal from them. also bring in someone from use basketball as an "associate head coach" for the connections to the star players.

    2) trade cp3 for lonzo ball. the ball family are tv ratings gold and in 2-3 years he will be better than an aging and breaking cp3. the lakers can go all in with lebron and the banana boat.

    3) hire yao ming as president of bball ops. yao was a media darling! we would get great coverage and the chinese market would be too great for the nba to pass up in the finals! like the warriors hiring west and lacob, and the lakers hiring magic and pelinka, we have to hire a very popular ex player and a super agent to be the gm. bring in a super agent like jeff schwartz, mark bartlestein, or bill duffy all of whom have 30-40 nba clients. they know every gm and have far reach with players. sneaky choice here is jeff austin (giannis' agent)

    4) trade harden for giannis. he's got international and local popularity to spare. wait a year or two for the speculation of him leaving in free agency starts to rise. the bucks will take our offer in a heartbeat since harden keeps them relevant and is locked in long term. it will be the best offer they get, even if its not where giannis wants to play (a la kawhi to toronto). however if we have his former agent as the GM he might be more open to the idea, plus the nba will be rigging games in our favor so he'll stay.

    there you have it: yao, hammon, giannis, ball and we will be the most popular team in the world. the nba will OWE US at least 3 championships. plus i like the idea of smothering curry and durant with ball and giannis.

    I thought Game 6 was worse. At the time I even accepted a rig job to promote a revenue boosting came 7. There had been no good Western Conference series with the Rockets and the Golden Glory Whores demolishing all of the mediocre teams in rounds 1 and 2.

    I was shocked that Game 7 still wasn't officiated well, but even still, game 6 was worse. These aren't "up for interpretation" calls either, or missed charge calls, etc.

    And it royally irritates me when I try to show these videos to neutral fans who won't pay attention to them and just say "losing fans always blame the refs". That's partially true... And yet, watch the video.

    Scott Foster, Tony Brothers, Ken Mauer, Ed Malloy, Bill Kennedy
    Scott Foster had a long history with the Paul family, Chris brother used to play college basketball, Scott was a official there and threw Chris brother out one game in NCAA game. Of course revenge on Chris Paul since then, Scott threw out, Paul brother out of the game at Utah while he was sitting at the game.
    Tony Brothers rigged Game 7 For LeBron James vs Pacers, a light touch when Lebrn in the post is a foul
    Tony Bothers calling Flop Foul from Marcus Smart against Harden late in th 4th at Boston, 2 times
    Bill Kennedy rigs Decisive Games for Lebron. Rockets vs Wolves Game 3 Rockets were continued to get called fouls on hem by Kennedy

    so game 3 was actually pretty f'n bad as far as rigging goes. this one was worked by marc davis. game 1 was a foster-brothers production with ariza going to the bench with his 5th foul early in the 3rd and KD going off after that. and game 2, also a mauer-malloy affair like game 6, they tried so very hard to keep it close for GS but we just made too many 3's.

    someone mentioned why doesn't anyone say anything. well all the owners make money when GS brings in the cash. plus tilman being the newest kid on the block is probably told to just keep quiet and be happy he's part of the club now. and as far as the players go, even after they retire the league keeps them in line with the pension carrot. plus nobody wants to rack up $100k fines like JVG. stern also publicly threatened to kick him out of the league if he ever spoke again.

    btw, i had kept a log of the reactions to the machinations of the fuking whores running this league...
