We keep being told about how many games Joey Crawford has been a ref at playoff time. The ability to get to ten officials through league control to maximize NBA profits is incentive, but if some of the top league folks are sharing information with a multi billion dollar gambling empire, one would have to be absolutely naive not to see a growing problem. I signed up for the NBA package, and cancelled after they were trying to cheat people for the almighty buck. Sorry, I am not a fan of Silver. I think it would be fair to say the entire game is at risk if people start making utubes on the inconsistent calls which always go to a select few which feeds the NBA agenda.
The Pacers are terrible. They were humiliating a team that the NBA banks on......then the whistles stopped being blown, and the game changed. Nobody is talking about James making some great shots, we are talking about somebody who had fouled out.
