Nope.

With regular jobs, if you publically attack your own company like that, you get FIRED.

In sports, they can't "fire" you (terminate your contract), but they can fine you. This is stipulated in agreement between the contracts/league/players union.

Did Stern and the Refs set up this play as well?

The officiating was definitely in Cleveland's favor. It was friggin obvious. The NBA didn't want a Detroit/San Antonio rematch. They felt that San Antonio vs Lebron would make for more compelling TV. They were wrong obviously.

Bill Walton, you're arrogant "sage of the game" approach is tiresome.

freedom of expression is an essential facet of our ever declining democratic liberties. I thought Bill Walton was a proponent of freedom.

disagree with what he said sure, but a hastily assembled ad-hominem attack is a poor exuse for journalism.

Rasheed is free BY LAW to say what he wants and not get in legal trouble, yes. But a company is free by law to punish those that hurt a business.

Sheed seems to forget that if anything the league would want the Suns in the Finals over the Spurs. The Spurs are a bigger threat to ratings than anybody.

Why did the officiating favor the Spurs over the Pistons in 2005? Is Popovich sleeping with Stern?

That would be the only possible explanation if the league was actually trying to get the Spurs into the finals.

You can also get in legal trouble for saying stuff (slander)

of course he will get fined but i agree with you.

if you are going to let the refs **** the teams/players over, at the very least let the players complain back without getting in trouble for it. you cant give the refs unlimited power and protect them at the same time. if a ref blows a call, players and coaches should be able to get pissed off and complain. you already hurt them with the bad call - dont add a tech onto it.

I agree that he shouldn't get fined, but Sheed is delusional. The Pistons choked against the Cavs, and Sheed lost his cool in the worst way. If the NBA playoffs were fixed the Suns or Lakers would have made it to the finals instead of the Spurs.

Good point. Sheed needs a hefty fine at the least.

I wouldn't have a problem with players complaining at the press conference and saying something like "The refs blew that call," but to claim they deliberately rigged a game is as InsideHoops said, slander.

exactly, there is no way in hell stern would want another Spurs finals. We are ratings killers. every year the spurs get to the finals, it seems we break the record for the lowest rating finals...which was previously held by us! lol

...NOW he could have thought, well the spurs got past the suns so its most likely they will get to the finals...if the pistons make it again it will be a disaster, so lets push lebron and the cavs.
