    People keep calling BB a sore loser but this guy is just complaining all the time ....

    I'm normally not a big fan of polls but check out the poll on that page.

    Was the Lakers/Kings series fixed?

    84% Yes
    16% No

    :rofl:

    I don't care if the NBA's officials get exposed for this it has to get attention. Is it true? I certainly think so after I watched that series but now that someone has actually stepped up and said that he knows the series was fixed (although he is a disgraced official he has nothing to lose by saying this).

    David Stern just dismisses the guys charges and then discredits him instead trying the look into the problem. He was a good commissioner once but they need new blood bad in the NBA at the top.

    Maybe one day the truth will come out about the Mannings too.

    where there's smoke there is fire. nobody is going to tell me that donaghy was the only official that was on the take or doing something he shouldn't be doing.

    What was Arlen Specter's comment about cheating? If he had any integrity, he'd be railing about Congressional hearings but I guess Comcast doesn't have a dog in this fight.............

    If I recall, the ref'n in that game was just downright brutal in favor of LA. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but Donaghy at least picked a good game to point to if he's making this up or exaggerating what goes on.

    Kings fans are still furious about Game Six after several years. They would have won Game Six and thus there never would have been a game seven to lose. And they would have crushed the Nets seeing as they were the best team in the league that year.

    Could Lakers fans even argue about this one?

    Kobe viciously elbows Bibby and knocks him over and he is down with a bloody nose. The refs than call the foul ON BIBBY not Kobe.

    Yeah, Kings got royally screwed. I mean, they pretty much did have an NBA title ripped away from them, whether it was incompetence or by design if you believe Donaghy, I'm sure that game still doesn't sit well with the folks from Sacramento.

    I don't think theres much opposition to the belief that that game was stolen from the Kings other than the NBA and Lakers fans. If I were a Kings fan after that I don't know if I could have watched another NBA game.

    And as much as I like to see the refs exposed for handing that series and the finals essentially to the Lakers (The Nets were a push over for the Kings AND Lakers) it pisses me off that it is overshadowing our finals right now. All these years the C's have spent trying to get back to the finals, they finally do and this has to come out precisely at the time.

    And f*ck the stupid LA fans who claim Game 2 was fixed as well. The definition of fixed was Game Six of the WCF in 2002.

    The one redeeming point is that the NBA has to keep this series on the up and up..With heightened awareness any funny business and even Sen Spector will be calling for hearings......

    Good point, I didn't think about it that way.
