In other words for crying, why wasn't he and all the C's fan crying during the Finals game 2, when Powe shot more free throws than the whole Lakers team or when KG kept running illegal screens?

Lakers didn't shoot free throws because at the time they were a soft jump shooting team, and the C's D forces you to shoot jumpers. But that is a different topic for a different thread.

When it comes to the fine, o well.

Laker fans need to grow up dude, this is almost pathetic, making a thread bashing a coach for getting fined?

Ya like hes the first coach to do that, get over the beatdown you've received and move the **** on.

Crying about him cussing out the refs, yet your star player was accused of raping a women not 2 years ago.

You are the one that needs to grow up.

Bringing up something that happened 2 years ago is childish.

They need to realize that the Lakers aren't perfect, and stop bringing up little pathetic things like this.

I brought that up to make a point, showing that they aren't gods.

First of all that has nothing to do with the thread and second that was more like 4 years ago.

Back to the thread,i dont really like when coaches state their opinion and get fined.Ive never been a fan of that and i dont think Doc should of been fined.

Threads are made up whenever someone is fined including Phil Jackson. Stop thinking Celtics are special and we are making threads only for them. Sorry to have burst your bubble.

Rivers always yells at the refs, as do many coaches. He must've said something bad/

I love how Boston fans get so defensive about the stupidest things. And by the way, Kobe did not rape the girl, it was consentual and she was the town tricycle, everyone got a turn.

? He was found 100% innocent, the woman was a gold digger in the first place. Doc was whining all night long because he wasn't getting calls he's used to getting.

You know what is funny tool is that we just swept the season series.....and it will be even funnier when the Lakers are waiting as Western confrence champs we will be watching the Cavs destroy the Celtics in the Eastern confrence Finals! that will be comedy huh? :)

meh, not gonna say anything because I complain about the refs all the time although I didn't particularly notice any lopsided officiating that game. Its a lot harder to miss it when its not happening to your team though.

I'm not sure why any fellow Lakers fans are getting so defensive. All coaches complain about the refs, Doc just happened to get fined for it. No need for all these emotional comments towards Celtics fans :confused:

He has every right to be pissed. I'm from a neutral city and don't care for the Lakers or Celtics but, the officials heavily favored LA in both Lakers-Celtics games this season and especially Thursday night. That was bad. it was almost like the refs had money on the game.

Frrrrank!!!

There you are! My good ole friend LakersnDodgers, where have you been?!?! Haven't seen you in the C's forum once the C's starting winning again, and what do you know you pop up when the C's lose.:rolleyes:

Don't know if you watch much basketball, but how can you just dismiss the Spurs?

i know. its like the Celtics are the only ones pissed at the awful officiating. it has been terrible lately. it was even worse against the knicks on friday night.

KG was on a fastbreak and same guy just rams him from behind. i dont even think they called a foul. there was about 5 make up calls after it.

They called a technical for it. You're talking about when Harrington pushed KG from behind on a fastbreak, right?


Harrington got a technical for shoving Garnett on a dunk attempt that ended with Garnett crashing into a television camera on the baseline.

If any coach in the NBA got fined, there would be a thread about it... no need to get all defensive. Thinking that this is an attack on the Celtics is hilarious.

Go back through the topic and you'll see the Celtics fans started the argument by getting all defensive. This thread would have been made no matter which coach got fined.


i hate these stupid threads

Then don't bother reading/posting in them.

First of all this isn't the Celtics forum smart guy.....second yeah i probabley watch and know more basketball than you,the Lakers just destroyed the Spurs (for the 2nd time this season) a few weeks ago.And if it wasn't for a last second fluke toss up by that Mason scrub we would be 3-0 against them this year! LOL----Lakers have a much easier road to the Finals than the Celtics do buddy.

You got me on the first point, this isn't the C's forum.

But I don't think you can just not count wins. Not to mention Mason isn't a scrub who just "tosses" in shots, he is pretty good at shooting the 3 just to let you know.

So can I not count the Lakers win in Boston because it was a 1 point win?

oo thanks for that. i must have got distracted or somethin. i just remember KG staying down a while.

it should have been a flagrant 2 imo. he was in no way going for the ball.

Mason didn't shot a 3 it was a long 2-handed jumper with his legs spread open like Jordan dunking! it was a miracle shot.....difference is we didn't need a lucky shot to beat you BOTH TIMES---we handled you in L.A and the other night it was clutch free throws by Odom to win it.Bottom line years back i would not count the Spurs out but with Finley? Thomas? there old...they couldn't beat the Lakers last year without Bynum now with Bynum being back before playoffs there screwed (homecourt being in L.A) in a series! cmon! Bynum schooled Duncan last game too! He can put up the same numbers as Duncan or better head to head....Cavs will have homecourt in the East.:D:D
