Gosh can it be any clearer that the stars and the glory team of the NBA are in Stern's back pocket? That no call on Nelson by Kobe, proves that the refs are prodded to make sure that the Lakers win at least the Western Conference, so more money goes into the coffers.
Pathetic.
The WWE has more integerty.

That no call was a good call. Kobe didn't do that on purpose and besides, Nelson was looking for a charge. Kobe was into his shooting stance, by time he "hit" him.

Not to mention by that time, it was already too late for Orlando to do anything...

I think that Nelson over dramatized the incident. He did a terrible job acting.

Kobe was fouled a number of times and the refs did not call anything.

Ever notice how many always blame the calls, or lack thereof, by the refs for the outcome of the game? There are many missed or blown calls on both teams, they even out. Don't blame the refs in any given game. The team that won that night was the better team. Simple.

I don't think you're talking about the same call. I'm talking about the no call when he passed out to Fisher that led to the permament lead for the Lakers. Kobe was not shooting.

People who constantly blame the refs know little to nothing about the sport they are complaining about, and thusly, should be ignored.

Im the first to yell about NBA officiating, but trying to blame this game on the refs is pretty bad. Go look at the foul shot disparity in the 4th quarter, its pretty hilarious.

Not only that, but if Howard can hit a foul shot, or Nelson can close out on defense, this series is tied.
