I don't know if I want to watch these playoffs anymore

I would make a comment about the officiating in Game 7, but I'll just say Bennett Salvatore, and leave it at that.

I saw what you saw, and, yeah, whistle goes in the pocket, except timeouts. Pierce clearly had control. Lebron got away with a shirt tug, but the game wasn't close at that point.

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeetroit BASKETballlll.

You know what's even more baffling than the bad officiating to begin with? The fact that the announcers and analysts always call whichever ref fucked up yet again "one of the best" or "a veteran."

It is interesting to compare the NBA with two other leagues. NFL adds things to cover a ref's mistake (thus making some calls null) and MLB refuses this, putting everything on the Ump to fuck up constantly, but what can you do? But in the NBA the ref can control so much of the game...not only who wins, but how fast the game is, so on. Stern turns the other cheek, more concerned about pre-game fireworks than the usual awful refs and ratings. Keep it up, pal.
