I was just wondering what opinions there are about Miami? Without having the officials allowing Wade and Lebron to get away with murder, would they really have the best record in the East or even win the title last year? They really don't impress me and without the extra help from the officials, I don't think they would be all that successful. Thoughts?

How would MJ's Bulls have done? Or Kobe and Shaq's Lakers? Superstars get calls, always have, always will.

Yes. They would fail to make the finals without help form the officials. And Jordan and Kobe would each have less titles without help from the officials. I think we all know that.

That doesn't make it right. Even making it exclusive to my team, I'm DAMN sick of seeing Sullinger get called for ticky tack fouls while guys like Pierce and Garnett get away with travels and illegal screens all game.

Watch another sport. not to be harsh, but that is the way the NBA is dude. And it won't change. Besides, people act like LeBron doesn't get fouled, and just gets phantom whistles left and right. Please.

Like Hawk said people act like they're a bunch of phantom calls. Take the celtics game tonight it was extremely physical so your arguments hold no ground superstars usually play a physical game. Granted some calls can be BS but hey refs are only human

they obviously impress me as they are rediculously talented.. the one thing that pisses me off about them is whenever they drive and dont get a call.. they ALWAYS ***** to the refs.. thats annoying

We can play that game too.

Players attempting more free throws per game than either LeBron or Wade (in order):

James Harden
Dwight Howard
Kevin Durant
Kevin Love
Carmelo Anthony
Kobe Bryant
Russell Westbrook

So, how good would the Thunder or Lakers be without the double standard?

Wade would be pretty much useless. LeBron would still be the best player in the game.
