When you're being allowed to get slapped around the whole game it can most certainly affect the whole game.I dont think the NBA had much to do with losing by 18 points. You lose by 1 or 2, you can point a finger somewhere maybe, but its like us in game 4, When you get your *** kicked like that in your own building, you just need to admit it and move on. Can't blame the refs for a game like that.Not necessarily. The bad guys are definitely teams like the Pistons and Lakers, though. And they get to play for the championship. ed:Shame it's true. Course the bad guys are everyone but the Pacers, and the Pacers never win anything =\I hate this game. The bad guys always win.
The NBA is all about money, and they'll do whatever it takes to get it. That's why we'll never win a a championship. Stern is laughing all the way to the bank.
But we did get thoroughly outplayed tonight to boot.
