You would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to have seen the phantom calls, the missed calls for clear violations, and the discrepancy in calls..all overwhelmingly in the Lakers favor.
I don't see any of that. But you do? all these phantom calls, missed calls overwhelmingly in the Lakers favor? So you feel that the Celtics were screwed by the refs' home job?
Wonderful. The last thing I want to see is that you whiners see that the Lakers beating the Celtics fair and square. The more you feel screwed, the better I enjoy this championship. It just adds more spice to the celebrations ...
Nothing better than for you folks to get a taste of your own medicine. 2008 and 1984 were just a tip of the iceberg...
So yes, the championship is gift-wrapped to the Lakers. What can you do about it? As McHale said in 1984, a few years down the road, people only remembered who won the championship in 1984. Who would remember your whining? or your pathetic arguments about the FTs?
That's why you try your best in the regular season to get home court in the finals. That's why you don't tank games against the Wizards, the Nets, the 76ers, the Knicks, etc. You do that and you expect a friendly whistle in game 7 of the finals? on the other team's court?
