Default Holy... Sheed says NBA fake, fixed and like the WWE now.

Quote:
"I still don't think they (Cavaliers) beat us, we beat ourselves," Wallace said. "And I think we also fell victim to that personal NBA thing where they are trying to make it a world game and get (television) ratings. They wanted to put their darling in there (the NBA Finals) and they did, and look what ended up happening."

The league's darling, according to Wallace, was LeBron James, and what ended up happening were the worst ratings in the modern history of the NBA Finals.

"This game ain't basketball anymore, it's entertainment," Wallace said. "It's starting to get like the WWF. There ain't no real wrestling anymore either. It's all fake."

Let's predict the fine. I say around $100, 000.

refs only have so much control over games.


if you prevent it from becoming so close, how can a ref reverse a 20 point blow out?

What a whiny crybaby. If he were sticking to the post instead of leaving the post empty to shoot 3 pointers which are very inaccurate, they would've won the series.

I thought it was a well known fact that Stern manipulates the system so that LBJ is always on TV

Wow. Two years ago when the Cavs took them to seven games the Pistons said it was their fault, they underestimated the Cavs even though Sheed guaranteed a win in Game 5, a game they lost.

And last year they said it wouldn't happen again and they lost by 16 in Game 6. I don't know what it's gonna take for Sheed to admit that the Cavs are a good team and beat them fair and square ... Daniel Gibson might have got a couple of questionable trips to foul line in Game 6 but that's it. The refs did not give the Cavs the series and the Pistons did what they could to win but they couldn't. End of story. Give the Cavs some credit.

It's pretty easy to rig a basketball game, call here, no call here. Charge here, blocking here... it's the easiest out of all the sports.

I suppose a ref could call a few phantom fouls early in a game on a star player....then while he is sitting on the bench the other team would take advantage. Anyways the thing is a lot of these games are going to be close and the refs can manipulate a game with bad calls and no calls.

Yup, the game moves so fast so there's a lot of judgment calls. Looking at it on paper, there's no way that Cleveland team gets past Detroit. They should've been swept.

Of course he's going to get a fine for it, you must be completely retarded.

You're an idiot, 'Sheed
It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe

It has taken many years, but I finally found something that Richard Nixon said that makes sense. In some recently released tapes, the Tricky One said that he found Ronald Reagan to be "strange" and that "on a personal basis, is terrible" and "just isn't pleasant to be around."

I feel the same way about Rasheed Wallace. It is difficult to imagine, fathom or comprehend the thought processes that led to 'Sheed's despicable comments last week, where he accused the NBA of exploiting young players (saying the NBA drafts young players who are "dumb and dumber") and called out NBA commissioner David Stern (saying "I see behind the false screens. I know what this business is all about. I know the commissioner of this league makes more than three-quarters of the players in this league."),


Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth

Bill Walton can't write... he's better off make a diss track with Aaron Carter.

If you truly believe that, then why do you still watch?

Anyway, I'm so happy Sheed is no longer on the Blazers to keep giving them bad press. And why shouldn't Stern fine Sheed? If an employee for a company publicly bad mouths his company, there are going to be punishments. NBA should be no different.
