It went both ways, but I think both fans have beef with the inconsistency, as well as the nit-picking by the refs. Not to mention them taking over the game by calling the soft fouls on Stoudemire when him and Dwight were battling for position -- as a fan of the NBA I wouldn't want it to happen to other teams superstars either, at least during the regular season. Just takes the fun out of watching the game. Amare vs. Dwight for 4 quarters was something ORL and NYK fans were looking forward to.

I agree. If refs are gonna call it tight then it needs to be consistent cuz Horward was getting hacked all game. However if they're gonna allow then to play physical :pray: then they should swallow their whistles both ways and stop with the techs. Also I notice that everytime they call a tech on a star they are always hesitant to call a second even if the player deserved it. After Amare picked up his first, during a later play he shouted at an official and didn't get a tech and even later did stuff that other players might get Td up for. Same for Dwight. After getting called for a tech early during a later play he was mockingly clapping his hands at an official. I'm not saying I want these guys ejected but these techs need to be called consistently for everyone no matter what their Alist status. The NBA is losing repect fast with this BS but stars need to grow up and learn to control their emotions cuz a guy like Amare getting ejected would automatically cause his team to lose the game.

Figured stan would get fined. Saying refs are out to get dwight is a bit crazy...

Glad he spoke out though. Maybe it will help dwight out. But dwight does need to learn how to react and how too be more mature.
