Jeff Miller of the Orange County Register reports:

There’s a whistle and the Lakers complain.

There’s another whistle and the Celtics complain.

Sometimes there’s a whistle and both teams complain. And both coaches and benches and, who knows, maybe even dance teams.

Hey, NBA Finals. Put a sweat sock in it! Shut up and play already!

Is it just us or have the Lakers and Celtics taken crying to new and off-putting heights in this series? We know Big Baby is playing, but we didn’t realize a bunch of babies were, too.

Frankly, these Finals need to be burped.

“You have big, beasty, angry guys all on edge and slightly out of control,” Lakers guard Shannon Brown said. “You’re getting poked and grabbed. Your butt’s getting blindsided. I would say it’s pretty normal, actually.”
