    Some of these excerpts are fascinating. This one in particular, cuz I remember this specific game like it was yesterday. I remember telling my buddy in LA, and still do today (to which he agrees), that the refs "gave" the Lakers that game. If Donegy is telling the truth, then it looks like they really did. That 4th quarter in particular, was outright criminal in the calls being given the Lakers. I've never forgotten that 4th quarter.

    The excerpts cover a lot of games, and situations, that make you wonder. Remember the Suns game a couple of years ago when Nash got creamed, and Stoudamire got suspended? How about the game 7 where the Lakers came back against the Trailblazers? Interesting stuff.

    I heard about how this series was fixed a year or two ago. I dont know if it is true or not but that game 6 really was weird.

    Agreed. Refs have always given certain teams and players calls in the NBA.
