View Full Version : Sactown - Lekers Game 6

05-31-2002, 10:01 PM
Vlade with a killer three at the half. Webber held up the three sign and turned his back on the shot before it went up. Vlade drilled it. Nice attitude on the court. The Laker "fans" booed. I love it.

Walton is the biggest retard in history.

05-31-2002, 10:23 PM
walton knows his basketball but he makes some stupid-ass comments

05-31-2002, 10:25 PM
Kobe makes a motion to the crowd and Walton calls him a genius. Bibby does the same thing and calls it "uncalled for". The guy is a f*cking homer and has his nose so far up Kobe's ass you can't tell where Walton ends and Kobe begins.

SheWeb scared to death to take that 3-pointer.

05-31-2002, 10:30 PM
Man...isn't he though? He is looking to pass on every possession.

05-31-2002, 10:31 PM
75-75 after three.

GO KINGS!!!!!!!

05-31-2002, 10:52 PM
Wow. These are some piss poor calls.

05-31-2002, 11:01 PM
Horry slapped Webber hand and then they call that shit? The league and David Stern clearly want LA in the finals. This is some bullcrap calls. Even Walton was surprised.

05-31-2002, 11:17 PM
Clutch shot by Webber then they let it go to crap....damn Kings.

05-31-2002, 11:20 PM
Lakers up by 3 with 19 seconds left. I hope the Kings pull it out.

05-31-2002, 11:22 PM
Come on Bibby! Think showbe is begging out of guarding Bibby today like Phil Jackson said he did in game 5?

05-31-2002, 11:26 PM
How the refs saw a foul against Bibby is beyond me.

05-31-2002, 11:28 PM
Damn Lakers.

05-31-2002, 11:28 PM
This is a dark dark day for the NBA. That was pathetic. I have never seen a more poorly (likely illegal) called game in my life.

05-31-2002, 11:28 PM
Well, that sucked!

05-31-2002, 11:29 PM
Webber may have had his best 4th quarter since college but the Kings couldn't win 5 against 8.

The offensive foul of Bryant on Bibby should have been called and the Kings would have had the ball to win.

05-31-2002, 11:31 PM
That was pathetic. We all bitch about refs giving a win but this was the poster child of refs being in favor of one team...the Lakers. The league wanted LA in the finals and they will do whatever to get it done.

05-31-2002, 11:33 PM
well, i thought the lakers caught just a bit of the short end of the stick in game 5..but this game was overwhelmingly in favor of the lakers..

i think the same guy that through A-Rod out of the game on tuesday was hired by the lakers to officiate this game

05-31-2002, 11:42 PM
The game was called even, the Lakers won. End of Story......

05-31-2002, 11:46 PM
either you didn't watch or you are starting trouble again. maybe both. End of story....

And emp stern-head wonders why.....why his organization lost so many loyal fans over the years. Some one please pick him up and squeeze his dumb-azz into Bibby's shoes for the last few minutes of the 4th qtr! Hello, ole' emp, we are not that stupid! I am almost as shocked after game six as I was after game five, after I realized that the Kings....really..... had won the series already. Game#(can't remember), the half time 3pt shot that REALLY DIDN'T beat the buzzer and the lekers won by 1pt.

Brick and Dobie should feel embarassed that the organization would try to give them the series for the sake of ratings. I would be pissed. I 'd rather lose than have my fellow Americans watch it get handed to me, it was that obvious.

06-01-2002, 12:41 AM
Yea it was that obvious that when it came down to the end, Shaq and Kobe came together and showed why they are the 2 best players in the game. The refs didn't hand them the game, the Lakers earned it IMO.

Forget the refs. They strongly influenced the game, *especially the 4th q*
but the Kings had their chances. They were shooting poorly, and the Lakers deserved this victory. With the refs, home court, obvious stronger desire to win, Shaqs 40 points, the Lakers hardly managed to win. I still believe the Kings are the better team than Lakers (by far), and with one good game, in which the Kings would control the pace, the Lakers are done.
The Laker should be very very lucky *not to mention the refs* to pull another victory at Arko.

Have a nice day, all mavs brothers...next season we'll be humping all over this pathetic edition of the Lakers...mark my words...

06-01-2002, 12:44 AM
The IMO helps. You should use it more often. Shaq and Kobe played very well to be sure, but to say that the Lakers didn't benefit from poor officiating against the Kings is just ignoring the facts.

mali king
06-01-2002, 12:48 AM
I don't know why, but I am very calm about all this. And I am a die hard Kings fan. Is it just me, or the Kings appear in this series to be better team than the Lakers?

06-01-2002, 12:52 AM
The Kings are a better team than the Lakers. If LA moves on I hope the conspiracy theorists come out of the woodwork.

06-01-2002, 12:55 AM
<< Forget the refs. >>

Mali King, I respect the fact that you won't use the refs as an excuse for why your team lost. However, I don't particularly like the Kings, so I have no problem saying that there is absolutely no excuse for the last inbounds play, where Kobe leveled Bibby with the ref looking straight at it and not calling anything. Maybe the Lakers defense would gotten a stop and maybe they would have won on their own last second shot or in overtime. But that was the worst instance of officiating I have ever seen.

06-01-2002, 12:57 AM
IF Drbio, you mean when right? Which will be Sunday night....... The Lakers are the better team, and it just so happen that they have the 2 best players in the game. They will win for 2 reasons. 1. Shaq 2. Kobe. End of Story.

06-01-2002, 12:58 AM
with the ref looking straight at it and not calling anything

Hoops- they did call a foul....on Bibby. Total crap!

06-01-2002, 01:01 AM
I hope dj checks the board...there is another of those dead spaces between intelligent posts. it's odd.

06-01-2002, 01:10 AM
The Lakers had as many FTAs in the fourth quater as the Kings did in the game. Which is 25, btw. That should tell you something.

06-01-2002, 01:13 AM
That is a disgusting stat AB. It tells very much.

06-01-2002, 10:37 AM
I saw AB saying this on the other thread but I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Checking my memory against the ESPN game log, The foul was on Doug Christie. If the foul had been on Bibby, it would have been a foul while the ball was out of bounds so Kobe not only would have gotten his free throws, but the Lakers would have gotten the ball back afterwards.

Kobe floors Bibby and as a result is open to get the inbounds pass, then Christie has to run over and intentionally foul him in order to put Kobe at the line so the Kings can get the ball back.

06-01-2002, 05:13 PM
Ah, okay. I didn't even see anyone else anywhere near that call so I thought it had to be Bibby.

It was still the worst call/noncall I've seen in a long time.

06-01-2002, 06:11 PM
I thought it was called on Bibby the way the ref reacted.
