im surprised people are actually defending this...NO basketball player is such a great defender that they Dont foul at all...its just not possible

but I think some people dont want to believe that the NBA just might be somewhat fixed...

consistency in calls is the whole problem with NBA officiating.

its the same thing as the "rookie treatment"

so you are telling me that rookies have to play by different set of rules defensively than vets?

That's exactly what it is. Its laughable to me. I'm actually ashamed to say i even watch the NBA. Its only because the celtics. Once they become a lottery team I'm done and sticking to football.

So you're a bandwagon fan?

I was waiting for somebody to say that I'm surprised it took so long. Nope, I'm a fan that has to force himself to watch a sport he otherwise wouldn't watch if his team wasn't so exciting to watch. If the celtics are a lottery team then i won't feel the need to watch this rigged sport anymore. I would be a bandwagon fan if i dropped the celtics and started rooting for another winning team which will never happen.

LBJ is the NBA /Sterns meal ticket ,   you can't foul him out of a game or let him have to play with fouls ...that would be fan unpopular/ TV ratings poor business wise and could get you on the wrong side of David Stern.


LBJ winning ...is a win -win for the NBA...

Wrong.  You are the definition of a bandwagon: only rooting for a team because it performs well, or as you say, is "exciting to watch."  It doesn't matter if you switch to another team, what matters is you are supporting a team solely for its success.  Once the success is over, and they become a "lottery team," you leave.

Unlike you, I'm going to follow this team for as long as I can, because good or bad, I always find this team "exciting to watch."

And you're wrong because you don't know how to read and comprehend. The main reason i would be leaving is because of the refs not because the celtics are a lottery team. Once the NBA gets respectable refs ill watch the sport on a regular basis. I'm tempted to stop watching now even when the celtics are still good. So please, comprehend a little better next time before responding.

Don't tell me what I can and can't do.  Thanks.  I know you don't like the refs; neither do I.  However, you did say that once the C's became a lottery team you were gone.  Now, the terrible job of the refs probably factors into your decision as well, but maybe you need to state it more clearly; I'm obviously not as sophisticated or educated (or literate, for that matter) as you.  So please, make your point a little clearer next time.

Back on topic, I thought the refs did a pretty decent job on LeBron today.  They messed up big time, though, on calls involving Ray, Wade, and Perkins.

Only 6 games? I wonder what the record is but I bet it's a lot more than that, even for high minutes player.

So many haters, he must be doing something right.
The guy just can't win lol.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

Lebron gets away with 3-4 blatant offensive fouls every game.

When those whom Stern has invested millions into marketing need some help on the court, Stern gives it.  Stern is a business who cares about money not the integrity of the game.  LeBron doesn't have a ring send in the refs.   LeBron who was not real aggressive, send in the refs so he gets no fouls called.   Problem solved, marketing dollar saved.

Lebron isn't a physical offensive or defensive player so he doesn't get called for fouls....

I caught about a minute of the OKC/CHeat game last night and noticed that the Bron non-foul factor has really carried over to his teammates.  Westbrook had the ball on the fastbreak, Ray stepped in front of him for a clear blocking foul and the refs still managed to call an offensive foul on Westbrook.  it was unbelievable.  If Ray were still wearing Celtic Green, that foul would have been on him without any doubt.

further justification (for myself) that watching any non-Celtic game is a complete waste of my time.

Star players get calls here or there, and they also really don't foul as often, or know how to game the system.

KG for instance fouls all the time. But he does it so consistently that he gets away with it now.
