    I agree. But the fact that we have to say that in a “to be fair” context… Ugh!Report

    Jeebus, you had me scared there for a minute when all I read was the Goodbye Cruel League on my Reader. I had a momentary fear you were leaving the League of Gents. Nooooo!!!!! Don’t go Freddie, we love ya.

    But yeah, you’re right about last night. The ghost of James Naismith should haunt those refs for the rest of their lives.Report

  5. I watched most of the game. What did I miss? Do you think the refs were in King James back pocket? If so, we all know that the NBA wants a Kobe/King James final. And that the teams aren’t doing much to help.Report

    It wasn’t that the officiating was biased last night, just that it was bad, tickey-tack bailout fouls in key moments, laughable non-calls that hurt both teams, calls that destroyed the game’s rhythm…Report

    NBA reffing has been bad for years. Why is everyone suddenly noticing now?Report
