I actually like our chances against SA better than the Lakers if we get by the Queens. And if we can't win it all, I'm pulling for SA. It certainly doesn't hurt that I can't stand the Lakers especially Shaq and Shobe. Go Spurs!!!

Spurs win in game 7 with each game going into 10 overtimes. Let them get tired.

I'm getting frustrated watching the Spurs game. The Spurs go on a nice run and go up by 8, then the refs step in and it gets tied. As soon as it is the refs stop blowing the whistle. One ref called a foul and showbe the wuss throws his arms in disgust and pokes Duncan in the eye. The ref clearly saw it but did nothing. It makes me sick to my stomach. The league-wide officiating this year sucked badly. It's a shame to have such a great season and playoffs dominated by refs who shouldn't be allowed to work a little league game. i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif

The refs can't take away teh fact that the Lakers aren't shooting well and making stupid plays. The Spurs should be up by 20. They will win in 5.

I love it. Spurs up by ten.

Holy crap!


Did you guys see the Ginobili slam off the Duncan pick? A thing of beauty. It will be on SportsCenter for sure.

yeah DOC, the refs are a little pathetic, and so is KOBE. Bowen is shutting him down

Please tell me the Spurs are not going to blow it now?

Lakers within 4 after the Ginobli 3 at the 6 minute mark.

The current Laker run really didn't have a lot to do with the refs to be fair.


Still....the refs fingerprints are all over this game.

The buzz is that Devean George may have fractured his ankle.

x-rays were negative on George's ankle. They're calling it a severe sprain.

Wow, what did Horry keep slapping at Robinson for? Idiot.

If the Mavs get eliminated, I hereby swear to pour all of my enthusiasm into rooting against the Lakers.

Hate that George may be out for the series; with Fox already out, I'd hate for Kobe, Big Fatty et al to have any wimp-out excuse for not winning. I want them to have to soak in their own suckitude.

This is laughable. Phil Jackson is blaming this loss on the refs. How ironic is that.


pathetic.

I heard that drivel too Doc.

He went on about how ridiculous it was that the Spurs shot 35fts compared to the Lakers 12.

How he knows Duncan had the MVP award handed to him tonight, but that's ridiculous.

Wah, wah, wah, wah.

The only thing more enjoyable than a Laker loss is a Maverick win. Hopefully we can have one of those tomorrow night. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

Every once in a while, Ginobili is erratic, however he had a great impact in the game. He plays great defense for a Euro (actually South American), and he can elevate. I think he is going to be the impact player of the Lakers/SA series. If Dallas for some reason doesn't make it past Sacramento, I will be rooting for SA.

I think you're gonna have to settle for Laker losses cause the Mavericks won't help with the other.

Spurs won this and its good. But I thought Shaq fouling out was the backbreaker for lakers.

phil's already workin the league after just one game. Now look for the Lakers to get more and more Bullshit calls as the series goes on. And he's right about the FT disparity, but it still seemed as if LA was getting more calls. And it was nice for the refs to actually let someone play good ole D without calling tic tac BS calls on him all night (BOWEN)


anyways......to PHIL........................turn about is fair play

The most telling stat I've ever heard about NBA officiating was the one they brought up last night. That was the first time Shaq has ever fouled out of a playoff game. A guy that big, who plays exclusively in the paint, who is very active in the paint on both ends of the court, and in dozens of playoff games he has never before committed 6 fouls? Come on.

But also he gets fouled on each play and people do not call that. So it makes sense they do not call on him.

Actually yeah he has...didn't he foul out in last years playoffs series against the kings? I think it was game 5 when Bibby hit the game winning shot. During Inside the NBA after the game I believe they said Shaq has fouled out 8 times during his playoff career.

Funny how the &quot;hater&quot; filters don't allow that through.

LMAO at the poster who still thought the Lakers got the calls even though the stats showed otherwise, clueless.

<< Funny how the &quot;hater&quot; filters don't allow that through. >>



Funny how Laker fans can't see anything but &quot;haters&quot;. The statement about Shaq was made by the TV announcers (is Marv Albert now a Laker hater too?) Sorry I hadn't double-checked them. Once it was corrected in this thread, no one has repeated it.



<< LMAO at the poster who still thought the Lakers got the calls even though the stats showed otherwise, clueless. >>



What stats? It was 24 fouls to 20 and that includes the intentional fouls LA committed at the end. Not much disparity there. Certainly not enough that the Lakers can whine (especially after the way they criticise anyone else who whines about the refs).

WayOutWest- if you are referring to me, I guess you missed this tidbit.

And you have got to even admit (most laker fans do) that the Lakers get preferential calls in critical times of games. The Spurs outplayed LA last night. The refs overall called an even game (see the total fouls), but it's those critical times that the Lakers get bailed out consistently.

No, I'm talking about this comment:

&quot;And he's right about the FT disparity, but it still seemed as if LA was getting more calls.&quot;

Is that comment based in reality?

The other comments about Shaq fouling out in the playoffs was corrected on the spot by another announcer but it's convienently overlooked. It's just typical, Spurs fans had alot more insight to the game and deal with the Lakers with level heads and they've been at the wrong end of a can of wupp arse by the Lakers the last two years. Classy team, classy fans, although the one's that popped in here didn't live up to the standard.

No doubt the Lakers get the benefit of calls but it's not cause they're the Lakers it's because they are Shaq and Kobe. Superstars have always gotten preferential treatment and I just find it petty and small minded to try and pin it on the Lakers. I guess the Jordan Rules have long been forgotten. TD got away with two fouls late in the game but since he's not a Laker nobody says anthing about that. Like I said, petty and small minded. If this is any indication the Bulls fans must have gone through hell and back durring their run.
