dude I'm not kidding... I would go right at stern. stu jackson. whomever. I mean this is just... blatant. appalling really. how they can just do this... its, I don't even have words.

let the players play. that's what the NBA is about right? the players? best players in the world? playing basketball? 2 best teams in the league, squaring off? right stern?

guess not. to throw a series like that... wow.

if I had any pull in the NBA whatsoever I'd be right in Sterns face fighting. call it petty but... you can't do this. you can't do this and not expect backlash.

you know what's funny?

the league PERMANENTLY suspended joey crawford because they wanted only the PLAYERS to decide the outcome of the game

another black eye for the nba, this one takes me out as a fan. at the end of this year, my 20 year affair with the nba is over, i'll follow football more closely...

Fans should protest the ruling if they believe it is wrong. Don't watch the game. Maybe the ratings will collapse

There would have been a lot less *****ing if the rule hadn't been upheld in my opinion

Now this is poetic. People criticize Ginobli for being a flopper, when Nash is ten times the flopper Ginobli is. But even with all those flops Nash has been getting away with all series long, it is own flop (on an Horry foul, but not nearly that hard) that gets Amare and Diaw suspended for a game! Nash and Amare have been doing just as much postulating as playing in this series, and it isn't clear if they are politicians, actors, or NBA players. This was evident in Game 4, with Tim Duncan in foul trouble from just silly calls, even picking up 2 offensive fouls in a 2 or 3 minute span (he may have never done this his entire career). Kurt "Hack-a-Duncan" Thomas played Duncan the majority of the game, finishing with 2 fouls (one against another player). It seems Amare's complaining paid off at last! While the Suns still may indeed win this series, they have nothing to complain about. They should be going to Phoenix down 3-1. Even though its tied, it's nice to see Nash and Amare's complaining and flopping, what has given them the edge in this series, has turned to cut Phoenix deeply, showing itself to be a double edged sword, just as likely to cut the opposing team as your own.

If anything, they should just send in their scrubs. I mean seriously, that would hurt the league, and while it is entirely possible that the Suns would be fined, it wouldn't be that much.



But, the one draw back of that option is that we'd lose out on the possible replay of the old school NBA game featuring Magic. I'd rather watch that than the whining we're going to see tomorrow during the telecast.

THAT is the opinion of a casual fan and there will be many more around the world just like that. Good job NBA.

During an altercation, stay on the bench or face suspension. VII c
End of story

Now find a way to atone the mental lapse and beat the Spurs

That's like clubbing a person in the knee and telling them to "be still".

Maybe you've never played team sports before, because obviously you don't understand the meaning of comradery.
