I may be a bit biased being a Chicagoan, but when you consider that the Bulls and Heat were tied (at least I thought they were) in defensive rank this season, the number of penalties that were called on the Bulls compared to the Heat was significant. I don't see how one team could be that much more prone to penalties than the other when they were ranked almost equally going into the series. By giving the Heat 10+ additional attempts per game, it changed the complexion of the game (points, substitutions, momentum). I didn't think that the games were called very well at all the entire series, but it was particularly bad in the final minutes of last night's game.
And I for one am really getting tired of the overacting going on in the NBA. Lebron drops to a knee and grabs his face as if Rose punched him, only to be revealed on the replay that Rose didn't even touch him. What a crock. These babies need to toughen up. Fine, when Bosh and James were hit by Boozer on his flagrants, I agree that they should go down. But the others? Come on... I think that the NBA needs to seriously consider penalties for overacting..
