    It's a really interesting strategy for the league/refs to rig these games so sneakily, allowing the team they're rigging it for to be down huge late in the game. Very bold! You'd think they'd, you know, make sure it was at least closer and not have to rely on so much luck. They're sure getting lucky with their rigging!

    The game was rigged for the Nets right?

    It's not just luck. There is also special magnets in the balls to make shots go in and miss too. Not to mention the ability to control the players minds as well.

    You always hear, "hand is part of the ball", but that's such BS. SO MANY calls are called from players getting hit on the hand. LeBron fouled Pierce and Pierce should have been shooting free throws but they didn't call it. At least they gave the Nets another chance because the ball was clearly last off Pierce, due to LeBron fouling him.

    That's what I instantly thought about during both the OKC/LAC and MIA/BKN game. Does anyone really think the refs rigged these games to make a team win? LAC and BKN both collapsed in the final 3 or 4 minutes. How could the refs possibly rig the LAC/OKC game in favor of OKC when LAC was well ahead with 2min to go?

Similar situation happening with Kevin Love, the team has to surround him with foreigners and whites because black players won't succumb to the greatness that is Kevin Love.

    I love the conspiracy theorists and their rage. If MJ and Lebron switched roles (the Lebron Bulls and MJ Heat), people would not moan. The Nets have a new motto for the offseason "Golf for Brooklyn."

    The Nets lost because they couldn't score a basket in the last 3:40 of the game. I'm not going to argue against Jason Kidd's coaching because I do believe they did the right thing on offense when they tried to have Pierce take Allen 1on1.

    Exactly. The clamp was on in Game 4 & 5 and Brooklyn didn't get that bad looks either. That last possession was bad though since Miami played suffocating D and it's hard to even get up a good shot. Clippers fans were making similar arguments about calls, but at the end of the day, blowing decent leads in a short span shows teams need to work on execution. And the worst answer to the situation is playing bailout ball or hero ball by shooting with 5 seconds or less on the shotclock. I wouldn't stop attacking if I had a lead, but not recklessly attacking. Good ball movement is key. P&Rs, off-ball screens, back down and kickouts, pick and pops, etc.

    This is very very true. I also don't realize why people think the Nets need to blow things up now. We played against the 2-time NBA champion... and it wasn't like we got destroyed almost every game like the Blazers did.

    We lost game 4 because Chris Bosh of all people hit a corner 3 to basically win the game, and we lost game 5 because we couldn't score for 3-4 minutes at the end of the game AND Ray Allen hit a miraculous 3 once again.

    This series could have very easily went to 7-games, with probably the same outcome. The Nets had an incredible season and turn around this year after a slow start. We did all of this without our best player even touching the court for the majority of the season. I don't think the Nets should be in "blow up the whole roster" mode yet.

    Lets see who we can resign/replace, see how Brook Lopez comes back and then try for another run.

    The blow up stuff is because of the age and $ attached to several players. So many role players are up for new contracts too. Blatche, Anderson, Livingston are three critical vets to that team and each are up for bigger checks. Livingston is a good backup PG or spot starter at the 2 (proven by Brooklyn that it works, but I don't like JJ and PP at the 3 & 4 respectfully.) Plumlee is a decent role player. Thornton is a streaky 3 point shooter as well. Teletovic is a big time role player for Brooklyn though. I think the fact he has a winning pedigree from Europe can help with stability as well. Idk what happened to D-Will? He shows flashes of his old self but then falters at times.

    I've honestly found myself watching the NBA less and less. When the one greatest factor in the game is how the refs feel for a game, I start to lose interest. It might be subconscious on the refs part. Reviewing pitch locations (MLB) shows that on a 0-3 count the next pitch whether it locates as a strike or not will be called a strike 90% of the time. The strike zone expands. I'm sure NBA refs get into habits of calling fouls for the stars. It's crap.

    I watched Kevin Love get calls all year long which never should have been called. It got so bad that Love was complaining about no calls when a no call was the right call. But, because he had so many calls he didn't deserve his impression of what a foul is was off base.

    The NBA is a league set up to cater for the top market teams and turns the rest into farm teams. That's not a game I have any desire to follow. Lets make a cap like the NHL and take some rights away from NBA players and we'll have a league which is competitive.

Once again, the exact same situation as last nights Thunder game.

    ITT we will discuss how rigged this game was, I feel so bad for the Heat bc this was rigged for the Nets wow, wow.
    it should have been 2 freethrows to tie the game followed by a failed game winning Attempt from Lebron. To send it to ot. The nba needs to change the rules, such bs
