Default The Scott Foster - Tim Donaghy Connection

https://www.foxnews.com/story/disgra...aise-questions

It's quite obvious what's going on isn't it? Or are there people out there who insist on being deaf, dumb and blind?

Why do you think the Warriors players went all in on getting KD on board? To beat LeBron? Ha! They're not too worried about him. They did it to make it harder for the refs to fix things against them.

Yeah man I definitely remember the poor Warriors getting screwed by the refs against the Rockets. Or in game 1 of the finals, man, they completely rigged that for the Cavs.




Oh wait.


















Too bad they couldn’t rig a finals MVP for your hero though.

The Rockets were getting so screwed over they had more free throws than the Warriors. How does that work? You do realize that's why they're giving Harden free throws galore this year right? It won't look so egregious if the Rockets have a lopsided number of free throws against the Warriors if they have already conditioned the public to expect it during the regular season. Cavs game 1? You mean the game where LeBron dragged Jordan Bell to the ground and then Bell got called for a foul?

The calls in the 2016 finals game 6 and 2017 game 4 showed the Warriors what to expect from the refs.

Cuban then turned to Stern and other NBA officials who were seated at the scorer’s table and was overheard to shout venomously in the jubilant din, “[Bleep] you! [Bleep] you! Your league is rigged!”
remember when Cuban was fined $250 large for confronting the officials and David stern and yelling "your league is rigged"?

The NBA fined Houston Rocket Coach Jeff Van Gundy $100,000 -- the largest amount for a coach -- on Monday, a day after he accused officials of targeting center Yao Ming this postseason and said Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban was to blame.

While Van Gundy laughed off the penalty and Yao offered to pick up half the tab, the matter jumped to another, far more serious level. Commissioner David Stern called the fine "an intermediary step," adding that an investigation would continue once the Rockets finish their playoff run.

He said further punishment was possible, even implying that Van Gundy could face a lifetime ban.

"If he's going to say things like that, he's not going to continue in this league," Stern said. "If the attitude reflected in those comments continues to be public, he's going to have a big problem with me as long as I'm commissioner."

After the Rockets' 103-100 loss to the Mavericks in Game 5 Monday night, Van Gundy called Stern's statement "interesting." But the coach stood by what he had said.

This was '05. I remember thinking 'whoa Van Gundy has some balls'. Little did I know.

Very interesting. I told my son about the refereeing in the 2002 WCF, the very suspicious favoritism the Lakers got at the end of the 2013 season to squeak them into the playoffs.
It's going to happen again the next 24 games - LA will get some very friendly ref treatment. Hell last game LA shot 17 FT in the last 20 min of the game to Houston's 0.


David Stern - who would you like to see in the playoffs? "The Lakers vs. the Lakers".

In the end, them trying to rig in favor of the warriors is for lebrons benefit. Coz they want to tell the whole world that we rig it for everyone to erase the stigma of lebrons 2016 rings as rigged. They want to make the warriors as the bad guys but anyone who isnt a nerd knows that the real rigged games are the games 3 in cleveland where durant overcame it all. Where durant shattered nbas plan to make lebron as the next jordan.
