Granted, I saw at least 2 noncalls that should have been made in last night's elimination game, but come on, Cuban!

The refs are really slacking... making calls that dont exist, and missing calls that are there

then sell the fkin team Cuban and go away. I am so sick of this guys complaining. Here is another suggestion. Stay up in the owner's box, where you belong. Refs arent going to give your players called if you are lighting them up all night

Could you guys imagine if the Mavs played the Magic in the finals? All these refs complaints would be off the charts.

Maybe his team should score more than 8 points in the first quarter.

There was a thread just yesterday about how Crawford is proud of the fact that he has stuck it to the Mavericks. With that in mind, how is there not validity to his complaint?

Just because it was a thread on PSD doesn't make it any more true.

There's no evidence to support Tim Donaghy's accusation.

The Mavs are 2-16 in playoff games officiated by Crawford since 2001 (including Game 3 of the Spurs series, a loss) ... and 46-39 in all other playoff games. They won their first 2001 playoff game with him (Game 5 versus Utah), so they've lost 15 of the past 16

Since Cuban knows everything he should just coach the team himself. Then he has no one to blame but himself

cuban said congradulations to the spurs, and since they are a texas team he will be cheering for them the rest of the way.. thats pretty classy for mark cuban.

I love Mark Cuban but I was watching the game and his team just could not make stops when it counted, it had nothing to do with the officials. I mean I understand his complaint but at this point it is just common knowledge that the home team is gonna receive favoritism from the refs... I mean granted there are extremes but his team could have EASILY won at the end if they had made stops but they didn't... they just traded baskets back and forth until eventually they fell behind and lost.

That's what they are paid to do. Ask Tim Donaghy because he knows.

For the last time: REFS DON'T DECIDE GAMES, PLAYERS DO!
Dirk is NOT a legit first option.

Time someone realized it, a real 1st option ( Duncan, Prime Kg, Kobe, PRime Shaq, Wade, Lebron future Durant) would have lead that VERY GOOD suporting casts to at least 1 title.

I think Cuban is frustrated by everything from officiating to the play of his team and I also think he did a pretty good job biting his tongue before he said something he couldn't take back. I'm also glad he congratulated the Spurs. I might be in the minority, but I like Cuban's passion for the game and I like that he isn't just another stuffed shirt in the owner's box.

Yes but that isn't enough evidence to accuse Crawford. ^^

Cuban running his mouth yet again. Whats new, the mavs simply got beat by a better team with a much greater desire to win the series.

The numbers dont lie...you could look at Dallas' records in games done by Crawford (I dont remember exactly what it was but it was a huge disparity) or you could look at the fact that Donaghy was right 80% of the time when betting on games, not by fixing games himself, but by using first hand knowledge of biases amongst referees.

Those are two significant numbers independent of one another saying the same thing.

Exactly, and it must be so annoying for the players to have the owner yelling in your ear.
