Right. Its my fault your team was tired as hell and clearly outskilled. Nice sportsmanship, fella.

They don't have to tell the 35 or so teams that have no shot anyways. Like Dannica, Kurt Busch, and Dale Jr.

Worst ever. Shaq fouled Bobby Jackson so hard he broke Jackson's wrist...and no foul was called.

The NBA has been fixed the entire Stern era. I went from a diehard fan to watching about 3 minutes a year. That league is a complete joke.

I think the NFL is fairly clean, in part because it simply doesn't matter who wins, we'll all watch anyway because it's a good product.
NCAA football? Not sure. I don't think there is any giant conspiracy, but game to game there are plenty of bad calls and bad officials.

There's no way the NBA was going to allow the Kings to win. The Kings were the better team that year. The Kings knew it. The Lakers knew it. The NBA knew it. One of the worst officiated games in playoff history.

I don't know why the NBA did that to Sacramento. Sacramento had the best NBA fans for YEARS!!! NBA teams HATED playing here because it was so loud. This city would have gone insane if the Kings had won. There was ZERO chance a team from the East was beating the Kings.

As long as Nascar has the ability to throw "debris cautions", the sanctioning body can influence the outcome of races....

It's pretty obvious why the nba didn't want the kings to win.

All it takes is Nascar to be a little less attentive on the inspections of certain cars.Have you never heard of getting "the call".When Dale Jr won at Daytona in July after his father was killed,even the other drivers openly talked about him getting "the call".

The Kings were the best team in the NBA that year. Even the Lakers know that. NBC may have wanted LA in the Finals but the Kings were a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more entertaining team to watch than the Lakers. And better too!

Um...have you seen the Lakers lately? Have you seen Kobe lately? No he won't. Kobe is on the decline - even when he gets back healthy.

However, this has nothing to do with this thread. He stole the one back in 2002. It wasn't his. The NBA gave it to him because they robbed the Kings. Look at the regular season in 2001-2002. Kings beat the Lakers by 9 games in 2002-2003. All those Lakers teams get the attention but they weren't even the best team in their own division. And even they know that.

Ughhh how many times have you seen future hall of fame players get a ring the year they retire..You really think it was based off luck?
