    I'd like to thank the NBA for vilifying Curry and the GSW's... :rolleyes: lol, damn poster child for the NBA, I hope houston just crushes them 4 in a row... Obviously I know that's a hard feat, but I do believe houston can beat these guys.

    I used to think I didn't like the Mavs or the Lakers (or some team that the Rockets were playing) but God damn, GSW is taking the crown and the series just started. F.... these guys! (Haha tried to clean up post, I've been a bit too animated lately) :)

    And it was just a common foul.

    It's called," Having a Agenda". They want to see the pretty boyz and King James in the Finals. We can block that nonsense if we take better care of the ball. We limit our turnovers we win this game easily last night.

    I don't know exactly what it is about this kid but I dislike him more every game. Harden outplayed him last night.

    This is actually as big a "statement" as the league can make

    The actual MVP of the league is getting fined. This would not have happened in the Bird-Magic-MJ era. Nor do I see Shaq or Kobe getting fined

    Hopefully it means the league will actually do SOMETHING on the court about the refs, instead of these SYMBOLIC moves

    Of course Warriors still somehow work in a jab at the Clippers lol.

    I guess one overdramatic outrageous flop is more attention worthy than several medium flops

    Steve Kerr later let the media know that he moonlights as a personal cleansing device when he isn't coaching for the Warriors.

    Kerr is one pompous a$$ coach...what the heck has he done for the league to warrant being such a troll...When this team is faced with adversity, we will truly see how Kerr will be the reason it all falls apart. Enjoy your flash pan success this year, its...all bound to come crashing down in a big heap soon...

    I really hope it does, I never really liked him much during his playing days, but you'd think he'd be a bit more humble after lucking into a loaded GSW team (dodging the NYKs) and even having that mess that happened in phx on his resume... But he just carries himself like a prick (at least I think so, and I've heard some crap about him being full of himself during meet and greet but can't personally back that up)...

    This Fine is just a way for the NBA to cover up the horrible officiating against the rockets

    This - what Green did was more of the intentional, flagrant variety, and he basically got away with it. Luckily for Ariza, he fell in such a way that didn't cause injury.

    Too bad the same couldn't be said for Smoove's collision with Dwight. :(

    Instead of $5,000, flops should be assessed a technical foul to be shot at the beginning of the next game. That would cut down on this bull$$$$

    Has Curry ever been fined by the league before? I don't think he has and don't believe it will happen again.

    It seems like a token gesture to show that the league is evenhanded.

    Good! Jamal Crawford, why even bring him up and when did that guy ever flop like him? TJ was stupid the way he jumped into him though

    If Kerr is "morally outraged" by a flopping fine, I'd hate to see what his reaction would be to the real issues of the world.
