JD Sports Forum! / Re: The NBA Playoffs
« on: May 12, 2003, 12:28 PM »
I'm not sure I would call yesterday's game dominating.  I'm marginally inclined to call it influence peddling by the NBA though.  

Matt's comments regarding the first game's officiating could be more than easily duplicated and reversed here.  Just how many fouls is Shaq allowed without being called on?  Pushing off to get a board used to be a foul, but apparently no more.  But I guess the NBA is about entertainment now more so than about the sport.  How else do you explain allowing Nicholson onto the floor to berate the ref (after a Shaq foul no less) and then let him stay in the Arena?  Sorry, but if that had been in a hockey game his a$$ would have been out.  

See Matt, I told you the refs would reverse it

I'm going to try real hard here to bite my tongue and not point out the 35-12 free throw disparity between the two teams (you can figure out who it favors, I'm sure  ).  Duncan shot more free throws than the entire Laker team.  Say what?!  Shaq only got fouled 3 times the whole game?  Yeah, right.  Kobe got fouled ONE TIME, in 39 freaking shot attempts?!?  Are you kidding me?  If this was a blowout, the disgustingly lopsided (and totally bogus) foul calls (or lack thereof) wouldn't be such a big factor.  Just total BS if you ask me.  Looked like the 4th quarter of that Sacto game last year where the Lakers got every call.  Whatever...

This is what Matt said, to which I replied:

Do you think the NBA really actually calls all the fouls?  Ever?  In any game?  Remember, I'm old enough to recall when basketball was a non-contact sport.  It looks more and more like a rugby scrum all the time.  

By the same token, 3 in the key; travel ball?  This is why I prefer college, they actually play by the rules of a game called basketball, rather than an entertainment program known as the NBA.  

Don't worry though, the calls will be reversed when the series shifts out west.

I rest my case.  Even if this was the Celtics, I'd be appalled.  It's just a wee tad to blatant, IMNSHO.

I apologize Chris.  Normally, I either go with my usual username or the replacement name from the space where "I'm a llama" used to be.  Just being goofy last night since everyone else in there was too.

Sincerely,
Peg

Oh, have them, I do.  I just don't like them and think they were a down side to ROTJ.  Unlikely, unwanted, un-Star Wars.  Definitely not Unleashed though ;)

Damn, nice collection Chris.  

Not too sure about that cow Fettish your wife has going there though.  If she ever signs on, I fear her username ;)

I've got some old Tyco stuff I'd be willing to trade.  Not sure of the gauge or any details, but drop me a line, I'm not at all attached to it anymore.  Good memories but not about to start up again.

One classy guy.  Very helpful to me and very patient as well.  The other half of the MInnesota connection.  Thanks Scott.

I trade with Jim so darn often, I can't even remember leaving feedback.  I might well owe him more, so this is a good place for it.  

First class trader, great packer and the other half of my Minnesota connection that keeps me sane (I know, debatable).

I just cannot wait for these figures to come out.  Too bad they'll never make it into any stores around where I live.

Jeez, that makes you sound like a Canuck.  Where else is distribution that bad?

Heh.  Heh heh.  

I like Fett and all but geez, hard luck character.  Cool in ESB but loser in ROTJ.  

He's goin' down baby! ;D

Nice job though, a great addition to a great line.

I like it, but then it must be a snow thing ;)

I'll buy as many as I can get my hands on.  Probably go screaming off to the McFarlane board and trade variants for snowtroopers if I can.

I like Windu's saber.  Of course, at the moment I'm talking about the plastic cheapies but...

Any word on price?  Back to normal I presume?
