    Fans will never stop watching. There is no other alternative for basketball. The NBA can literally get away with anything.

    14 free throws for Lebron after crying about not getting foul calls

    Remember when we cried about not getting calls and provided evidence of ref bias when we were playing GSW? Things did not improve.

    When Silver took over from Stern I thought things would have gotten better. The rigging is waaaay worse now

    He is the only played on Denver with a Positive +/-

    I see why the Refs took him out

    You are right that some fans will never stop watching. However, there are other professional basketball leagues in the world besides the NBA, and you can stream them if you try hard enough.

    Just because the NBA can get away with anything, doesn’t make it right. If the NBA wants to continue with biased officiating to help big-market teams advance in the playoffs, fans of other teams need to stop being emotionally invested in the games and not watch.

    It’s disgusting that a professional sports league cares more about what TV market makes the finals than letting the teams decide who wins on the court.

    It will never happen, but until fans stop watching these games and the NBA’s TV ratings take a major hit, nothing will change. It’s sad that we are even having this conversation about a professional sports league. Players should decide playoff games, not the league office.

    I'm ready. I mean, that was not fun to watch, and not just because I don't like the Lakers. The refs just got out in front of a potentially interesting 4th quarter and squashed it with whistles on one end and obvious no calls on the other. Blech.

    At least the Globetrotters make fancy passes and shots and include humor. There's nothing humorous about Lebron.

    Just like the nuggets planned. Lakers are now in the 3 - 1 trap. Time to start the comeback, cardiac machine!

    Seriously I want a game 7 at the very least.

    I’ve heard through the grapevine that Lebron has let the refs run train on him, thus giving him the ref privilege

    More like the Lakers have ref privilege. This crap was going on when the Shaq-Kobe Lakers were a good team or the Kobe-Gasol Lakers were winning championships. Every time a visiting team played in the Forum or Staples Center, they were playing 5 on 8, and it was obvious. The 2002 Lakers benefitted from the biggest screw job in professional sports history to defeat the Sacramento Kings and win a championship.
