Every playoff season, there is low level talk of some conspiracy - where teams win or lose on purpose to extend the series so owners (or whomever) can get more money.

Can we throw this away, please? Because if the conspiracy was in play, the Heat would have made a huge comeback, and we would be watching basketball on Tuesday.

The only legit talk in my mind is not players throwing games, but refs having an influence on a game. I don't think complete fixing happens, but I do think refs lean and it's usually pretty obvious.

Obviously they can't fix it to be 7 games every year or they would lose any credibilty they have.
