insteresting thread i saw in the lakers forum. ill quote it.


Does it seem like every time Crawford officiates a Laker game, we get raped. It's also funny that Stern hand picked him for this nationally televised Laker home game against his precious Lebron. Seriously though, we got ****ed on the calls tonight. Minus Howards 13 free throws, (most likely given to even up the team totals) the Heat had 8 more than we did and Kobe only got 2 free throws on 25 shot attempts. Anyone watching this game had to have noticed that something wasn't right. I still don't know how they let Joey Crawford officiate games in the NBA...oh ya...he is one of Sterns best go to guys...I forgot. Does anyone have the Lakers overall record when Crawford is the official? I'm sure they win their share of the meaningless ones, but the important games and playoff games have to have losing records when good ol' Joey is at work.

anybody think joey or stern are trying to screw over the lakers?

We Spurs fans certainly aren't too fond of that man. After last years Game 6 and throwing TD out for laughing as 2 examples, I cringe when I know he's reffing our games.

I honestly haven't watched enough of his games where LA is playing to form an honest opinion. But I wouldn't doubt it, he seems like the kind of dude to hold grudges.

He's been in the league for like 35 years or something, right? I think if he really hated a certain team the NBA would have picked up on it now. I think it's Lakers fan paranoia. He's reffed so many of their games, and probably has made a ton of bad calls...but due to the sheer volume they probably see it as a trend, when it's probably not anything outside the ordinary.

I don't know. He's generally not liked by most teams...

The Duncan ejection was by far the most egregious thing he's done, and the league called him out on it too.

Are you kidding? Joey Crawford looks like he hates most of the teams not with LA or NY in the names.

The Pacers game he officiated for us was absolutely atrocious. Other than that I can't really say honestly.

But Spurs fans have a lot to be upset about with him. In general though, the dude puts on a show, and he tries to make himself a bigger part of the game when the cameras are on.

He doesn't hate the Lakers, nor does he have anything against them from what i can tell. However, I strongly believe that Crawford is the single worst ref in the NBA. He let's his emotion take over the game.

The **** he pulled on Duncan is as pathetic as it gets.

haha less fouls, more free throws, and they blame the refs for the game. I watched the whole game and while their were some bad calls it went both ways, no different than any normal game. Some Lakers fans feel entitled to win I guess so when the refs don't favor them they complain. I love how the op complains about kobes 2 ft's and says the league is protecting its precious lebron who shot the same amount of times and only had 4 fts (and he attacked the basket much more)...

Kobe Bryant took 4 shots in the paint.... Not surprising that he wasn't hacked while taking long 2's. Also if any team doesn't have the right to ***** about officiating, it's the Lakers...

I thought the refs kept the game close for both sides but the refereeing was not the reason the Lakers lost. No answers for Lebron and Wade.

If they ever baned him from officiating nationally televised games. He'd probably move to Europe

Here you guys go making excuses again... EVERYONE on this board called Knick fans ******** for talking about what happened in the playoffs last year in game 1 (2nd quarter) & you all acted like you didn't see it.

Now you understand right?

HouRealCoach
01-19-2013, 03:23 PM
Another thing, it's easy to diss the referees for the job they do. Seeing that we are watching from TV & get to see slow motion replays and trip about a missed call. I think the NFL replacement refs actually proved how hard of a job it is to officiate professional sports. I'd bet any of you would do 10 times as bad if you were in their shoes.

& Stern wants to end the "Hack-a-Howard" so this thread is just ridiculous. How many playoffs have the referees helped the Lakers to? You guys are just gonna keep coming with excuses

Kobe was chucking away all game and your mad the refs weren't calling fouls for him. ******** OP did you even watch the game. He barely sniffed the paint during that game.

Crawford is emotional but all in all he's a good ref. Plus Im of the personal opinion that blaming the refs is always a lame excuse. If you can't adjust to how the refs are calling the game you shouldn't be playing.....

the Lakers are screwing themselves.

Do you really think they're trying to make a team with KOBE, NASH, and DWIGHT lose on purpose. How on Earth would that make the NBA any money?

I suggest yall rewatch the 01' WCF with the Kings and tell me the NBA is trying to screw the LAKERS. gtfo haha.

There's a thread in the Lakers forum as well. From what I've gathered, the nba, refs, the mayans, and god all hate the Lakers. It's the only reason they haven't gone undefeated the last few years.

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.

Well, I can express my thoughts for some of you who clearly did not watch that series.

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.
