I'm guessing this is one of those "spur of the moment threads" that later you will think, "that wasn't thread worthy." ;)

The one that gave Cavs the lead with 1.6 seconds to go. Should have been a know call, even if there was any contact they shouldn't have called that since they always say "they like to leave it up to the players"

There was some contact. Kind of a chincy call to make at the end of a game, especially when you don't give Joe Johnson that call on the prior posession.

Oh like the time Lebron got called for the foul on Granger with not even enough time left in the game to shoot for the Cavs.

At least the Hawks got a shot, and heck, Johnson's almost went in, the way they were shooting tonight, I'm surprised it didn't.

But of course I'm bias about the topic, in general. :/

Dumb comparison considering LeBron and co. got the exact call immediately before that.

You are not talking about the game where, on the very play before that, LeBron went to the FT line on pretty much the same call, would you?

This game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0im5IWqeLYo (go to 1:30)

You can't complain about that game. You never should have even had the opportunity to win it.

stupid call...If that was delonte west driving theres no call. But its lebrong so any breath that even touches him is a foul. Silly to end the game like that. Let it go to overtime.

i find it very easy to type away frusteration. sounds wierd, but it works. what better way to get over a loss than to complain over a call? it works great. it gives u peace as a fan. gives u an excuse to believe your team is the greatest ever if not for the evil nba refs and the money hungry david stern.

u really cant help but think there is some sort of favortitism toward him. ive seen some of the worst calls go in his favor. this call wasnt horrible, but was it really necessary to end the game on this?

i thought the foul call on josh smith before halftime was worse he barely even touched Lebron and they called the foul

Oh please, how many times do you have to see Lebron get hacked but since he's bigger then everyone doesn't get the call.. Hawks were getting a lot more free throw attempts throughout the game... The Hawks didnt even complain on the foul call

that was not a foul, this one was but it seems on this site people try to nitpick every time lebron gets a call his way but ignore it when he doesnt.. He is bigger then everyone so a lot of times he doesnt get calls he should since he doesnt flop.. Like Shaq back in the day

That didn't look like a foul and I was wondering why non of the Hawks complained?

This isn't even the point. Point is they always preach that they wanna let the players decide the game unless if it's a clear foul but then this happens and they call it for the game winner? are you kidding me?

Frrrrank!!!

very true my friend.

me and you can go over every call of just this game alone and find 50 calls that could have/should have gone the other way. if complaining is venting for some people and helps them cope, fine...but I'm just saying it's annoying to other people.

only problem is the game didnt end on this.

it ended when the hawks missed the potential game winner (a great look, too...when the ball was inbound, the Cavs announcer went "OH NO!" because of how good of a look it was)

Kobe would get the same exact call

The NBA is a joke when it comes to rules. Why even have said rules if your not going to consistently enforce the rules Equally! Not just pick and choose when you would like to call an infraction.

on second look, that call sucked. barely even touched him. if i called that foul in the gym, id be laughed at.

Well, there was contact. Clearly.

But...it never gets called. Unless you're a superstar. Doesn't matter. Hawks choked on their own blood. With 4 minutes left they had like a 7 point lead and they choked on it. That game was over the second they let Lebron blind pass to Mo Williams who buried a sick 3 from the corner.

Knew it was over the second Williams hit that.
