    Really? How does Phil think this last shot should have been called?

    But the grizzlies aren't marquee enough to get those calls. Blake held darrell, then pushed off, chris paul pushed off, SCORE!!!!! Clippers win.

    Whatever, everybody knows the grizzlies are getting hosed this series, glad that a BIG NAME like phil jackson is big enough to actually call the refs out on it.

    Cute. Phil likes to use smileys in his rehtoric. He's full of crap, but I would love to have that pot smoking , coat-tail riding, owner's daughter banging hippie as the coach of this team.

    Sure. Just like last playoffs, right? It's not like the Grizzlies push and grab every single possession. I mean, "Grit and Grind" just screams no fouls. I suppose Tony Allen played straight up no foul defense on CP3 on that last possession?

    Typical Memphis fan. Cry about the refs all the way to your second playoff exit courtesy of the Clips. Get used it to it.

    i'm not sure about the push-offs b/c the defender was bodying up close.....however the hold by griffin on arthur was definitely a foul.....you can see arthur struggling to break free from griffin's grip trying to rotate to paul

    Allen had him bodied up with his forearm on him pretty much the whole time...you're not suppose to be able to touch the guy if he's faced up. I'd think the offensive man has the right to create some space if the defender is able to break the rules himself by pushing the ball handler while he's trying to make his move. It was a hell of a shot by Paul...I'm not sure how many people have the strength to get away from Tony Allen and have the dexterity to make a shot like that afterwards. Incredible.

    If CP3 was on the other end of that, he would have flopped 3 times to the floor to get a call.

    It wasnt just that last play. He had been pushing off on offense and using his hands to foul the other player on defense the entire game.

    Chris Paul grabs Zbo's arm while going backwards and they call the foul on Zbo which sends him to the bench?? Really? The ref should have been fined for that call.

    The thing is though, Chris Paul has been doing it his whole career. He throws a lot of cheap shots, hacks, flops, and gets away with it.

    I have always called him a cheater and have never respected him, and it doesn't look like it is going to change anytime soon.

    Chris Paul was born to play for the Utah Jazz.

    MEM should have doubleteamed Chris Paul and force another player to try to win it.

    most players use their arms on offense to create room on approximately every play. The push off is not allowed, but the arm most certainly is.

    CP3 is the best player in the NBA at manipulating refs. Maybe of all time. He is insanely good on both sides of the floor.

    And on top of that, he is also the best PG in the NBA

    Slightly off topic:

    Can you imagine what would happen if the Clippers decided to bring Phil in, make him part owner, coach, front-office guy?

    glad that a SELF SERVER like phil jackson is big enough to actually call the refs out on it. (There, fixed.)

    PJax is an overinflated arse who, I fearlessly and sorrowfully predict, will take over in Brooklyn and swing a Sign'n'Trade for Dwight (for BLo). Shaw will be HC with the first Superman, Clark er Kurt Rambis as #1 ass't.

    WHAT? The officiating was fine. I didn't watch the game, but I saw that last possession and Kenny Smith even said both teams got away with fouling. They always let the players play. You're imagining things. I'm what and the NBA is not rigged. I am the biggest hypocrite in the world. You don't like it when it's against the Grizzlies, but it's never rigged and just fans crying like every team's fans do after they get screwed.

    Kenny Smith is a ****ing tool. Tony Allen played legit defense and Chris Paul clearly fouls him. I think he was smart enough to realize the officials were on his side all night and they would not call that push on him. Even if he was wrong his team still had a shot in overtime, but he wasn't.
