Personally, I don't want to completely blame the refs. I thought the refs made better calls in the 2nd half, then the 1st half. David Stern probably made the call, and let the refs know that we have another potential Bulls vs. Celtics series going WITH a good storyline.
# 1 Seed with the presumed MVP
# 8 Seed with a young, rookie coach for a team entering the playoffs after 5 years
Indiana the only team to have a Game 7 against the Championship Bulls
Jordan vs. Miller angle
A potential # 8 upset of the # 1
Can Rose maintain his performance to take his team past the Pacers?
Psycho T arguably being the most decorated college player ever
Honestly, I can see the calls getting BETTER in order to extend this series, if the games remain competitive each time. The only questionable calls for me was when Granger was mugged on a drive and the traveling call on Collison. If we get blown out in one those games.....
