Rigged to the gills. I've watched bits and pieces of a few Games, Celtics/Magic, and now Cavs/Magic~~obviously rigged contests in hopes of keeping the scores close to help the gate and TV Revs. It sucks~ Sure the Commish wants to see Bryant and James in the finals only his plan to keep Orlando close might just backfire, Cleveland should be down 0-3 and had it not been for a miracle 3 by James they would be.
Sure it's based on the Officials and the bogus calls they've been making. Called James for walking in game one and waved off a bucket with less than a minute to play. A freaking Traveling violation, surely you jest you damn fools. Regardless it's all I can do to watch and when the games are so obviously rigged it's even worse. Cleveland was supposed to win a close game one to set the tone only the Refs f,ed it up proper.
Where in sports do professional teams consistently blow 15-18 point leads deep into the game, especially during the playoffs? NEVER and NOWHERE~~~and it's happened 5 times in the past 8 games involving the Magic. All of this at the expense of the integrity of the game/sport in hopes of selling a few more tickets and gaining a few more Corporate sponsors. Shame on the NBA~! Show me the MONEY my ASS!
