I know this is a troll thread but all you Lakers fans who are supporting the OP are just mad cause Lakers suck.

I don't think he has anything against the Lakers, he's just a horrible ref. He's like that teacher that's way too old and has completely lost interest in his job, but he's there on tenure so he's not gonna get fired so you just have to put up with it whenever you get stuck with him.
And (some) Laker fans have been *****ing about Crawford for a while now. Not that I think it's justified, but they're not trying to blame the refs for our loosing this season.
Dodgers, Lakers, Raiders.

For one, during the whole series, the Kings shot 204 FTs and the Lakers shot 185 FTs.
In the controversial game 6, the Lakers shot 15 more FTs than the Kings did for the whole game. What is often mentioned by people who did actually watch the whole series is that game 6 was the reversal of game 5, which the Kings got the beneficial calls that sealed the win for them.
Also, to point out, the largest FT discrepancy came in game 3, where the Kings shot 20 more FTs than the Lakers did. In game 2, the Kings shot 13 more FTs than the Lakers did.
Up until game 6, it was believed by many players that the Kings were getting lots of help. Mobley mentioned this on the Best Damn Sports Show between games 5 and 6.
In the end, the Kings had a 10+ FT advantage in 3 of the 7 games. The Lakers only had 1 game where they shot more than a double digit against the Kings. Kind of odd when one team has a near prime Shaq and a prime Kobe, no?
Watch the whole series and then let's talk. Until then, it's useless to debate.
ESPN said that Kobe is the 25th best player in the NBA.
ESPN said that the Lakers would be the 12th seed.
The GM survey for the first time listed Kobe as the second best shooting guard in the NBA.
Time to prove the haters wrong once again!!!
Not as much as I do!
crooked ref he is
doesn't make sense. why would you screw something that earns you money?
it makes sense if you screw a small market team.
would you refuse your salary after you've worked so hard for it?
Joey Crawford who gift wrapped the lakers game 7 in 2010 by giving them 21 free attempts in the fourth quarter..you cant be serious

Maybe another question would be" is there any fan that doesn't hate Joey Crawford"? I know I don't hate the man, but when he threw 4-5 techs at us in one game in a couple minute span, he earned my forever enmity.
