    Will LeBron complain during post-game interviews, media appearances, etc, if GS keeps getting no-calls on their illegal screens and Draymond antics?

    At this point, I think only LeBron will be able to "bend" / force the NBA into acknowledging the crap GS pulls, on a game-to-game basis.

    OTOH, LeBron doesn't want to give detractors any reason to flame him. "Lebron a wuss, yo, for saying that." "LeBron needs to refs to help him LOL." "Wahhh wahhh LeBron."


    It's painfully obvious that Green, Bogut and the Warriors get calls (or lackthereof) thrown their way. No one has the "authority" to speak out against it. Not Harden. Not Lillard. Not Durant and Westbrook. But LeBron might be able to shine a light on all of GSW's turd antics.

    No one of power is saying anything about what GSW is doing. LeBron needs to change that.

    Thoughts?

    League doesnt care about Lebron, he's yesterdays news. Did you watch the finals last year? Iggy stopped trying to play d and just hacked once he realized he could do whatever he wants

    I have a theory that the league let Draymond get away with murder in the OKC series because A) they knew OKC likely wins the series if GS loses Green for even one game and B) they want to be able to suspend Green for a game or more if GS is dominating and the series needs to be made artificially competitive and extended.

    Green gives at least one legitimate reason to call a technical on him in every single game so the league has the exact tool they need to make this thing go 6-7 games. Meanwhile, if GS isn't dominating and doesn't need to be crippled they can continue to let Green run wild and they will at least look consistent with how he was officiated in the OKC series.
