I'm surprised we haven't seen a snarky comment like "our most painful loss was the 2016 NBA Draft" or something like that.
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about

My vote: Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. The refs screwed us, which makes it even more painful...

This!
Game was absolutely stolen from the C's

Game 3 of 1987 Finals. Magic's baby hook to beat the Cs and take a commanding lead in the series. Still convinced if the Celtics had gotten Kareem's missed foul shot, the game was over and the C's would have won that series. Instead the rebound went off Boston, LA inbounded the ball, Magic hit the baby hook and Larry missed the three pointer with no time left. Game and basically series to LA. UGH!!!

Pretty sure that was game four of the series, with the C's down 1-2 in the series already.
Even if the C's held serve and win that game, there was no way they beat L.A.on the road in that series.  That was the best Laker team of the 80's and they had the Celtic's number that year, sweeping them during the regular season.  The Celtics started looking old and banged-up in 87. 

But why quibble about such minor details, I share the same misery as you :-\

The worst hose-job in that series came in game 3. classic David Stern. We had them on the ropes at home, the Lakers were in a visible panic, then the refs got pretty much our whole team in foul trouble. It was insane. But because the worst of it happened early in the game, people forget.

Pierce and KG with 5 fouls apiece. Vintage Rondo with 4, and Sheed with 4. Ray had just 2.

Bryant, Gasol, Artest, and Bynum, had 2 each. Odom had 4. And a lot of those Laker fouls came later, after the C's had been crippled in the first half.

Without that "David Stern Special," the series never makes it back to LA.

What a disgrace.

Well if you're gonna go with that kind of interpretation of the question, I say the death of Reggie Lewis.  Reggie was the heir-apparent to Bird.

2009 Finals, we were up, then the refs basically gave the title to the Lakers.

The Ray Allen fourth quarter phantom foul on Kobe shooting a three from the corner, late in the game . . . yeah, that was a back breaker.  Especially, since replay showed Ray wasn't within six inches of him.  Didn't touch a single part of Bryant.  I would have been ejected and arrested for physically assaulting the officiating crew, if I was a player.  What a disgrace that fourth quarter was....

Believe it or not, the Greg Oden sweepstakes caused me even more pain.  I made an all day event out of than lottery drawing.
