    Oh yeah that magical play that would have led to a 20-4 rockets run that GS never would have had a answer for. That was dictated by the league after they told the refs to make sure Harden shoots a million free throws a game to throw everyone off the scent.

    I dont really hate it , not a fan of hating really(perhaps even unable of hating), in fact I ADORE NBA. I just have a strong sense of reality and am unable to think gsw is better than rockets(or Durant better than Harden) just because refs were calling it with a CLEAR bias at the momentum swinging moments...

    in basketball reality of skill and grind we did win it, we proved we are better even with cp3 down for all of the true basketball minds and enthusiast (and thats only that really matters) ...for me it was kinda like when westbrook was awarded MVP and Harden was a more valuable player and it wasnt even close

    only in the set up Holywood world of NBA WWE Show we didnt win and its ok, still fun to watch Curb Your enthusiasm even if Larry gets roasted 80% of the time.

    FIFY. The Rockets get to know that trophy is in someone else's home. The question is now what do the Rockets do about it.

    ppl are delusional if they think refs accidentally made 22 points mistakes and the refs interference accidentally happened just when the worriers were on the ropes, the crowd was into it and gsw about to go down 30 points at the halftime

    imagine if i send a couple of slick robbers now to get it from the oracle and bring it to houston?
    If they succeed would it it mean houston won it then?

    It would mean a lucrative deal on Craigs List but in the official NBA history, GSW's title is already etched in stone.

    i dont care about the official history.. alt history is always more true in all areas of human endeavor...court historians are not interested in the truth, they are like biased members of the media voting westbrook into MVP... an informed fan of basketball is not impressed and he knows who is the real MVP

    The Rockets are not you and other fans. I bet they want the title to be earned and verified by the league and everyone else. That's NBA life for them.

    That's why they stand up every season and put themselves through that turmoil again and again. That and the contract.

    For the stars, championship and Finals reputation is still important.

    Of course, but if you took away the money they'd do something else. If you took away the championship but still gave them the money, they'd still show up to play.

    Hakeem94 is asking for a championship for the Rockets, whom he thinks won the whole thing.

    I can understand it but it's not possible. Other than a charity mention. We didn't even win WC trophy. That's harsh.
