Does LAL s 2002 championship have an asterisk?
 
That WCF was rigged and it a fact. The ref himself admitted that it was rigged. Anyone with eyes can see the obvious favoring toward LA in game 6.
Is there an asterisk next to their title since Kings are the real champions.

And game 5 was rigged for the Kings.

So, it evened out. Nobody else even put up a fight.

You can make a legit case that the few amount of titles Miami has, both deserve an asterisk

2006 - 06 Finals referring
2012 - lockout

The Lakers, well they have 15 other titles to choose from.

There has never been, and never will be, an "asterisk" next to any title. If you win a title you win a title.

Now, you can argue all you want about how easy or hard the road to that title was, and how easy or hard the era; and what that means for the players who won it. If you want to argue that Karl Malone's 0 rings are worth more than Lebron's one ring, because Malone went up against the greatest team of all time twice and would've beaten anyone else, while Lebron went against and barely beat teams those Jazz would've eaten for lunch, and Lebron's team was unfair anyway, or whatever, go ahead and make the case. But if you win a ring you win a ring. It means you won the last game of the season - only one team can claim that each year. And even if the competition is relatively easy, to hold out that far is difficult. Plenty guys have shown themselves not to have the willpower.

As for the Kings... they choked. Period. Whatever else was going on, if one player on that team besides Bibby had a heart that wasn't made of straw, they would've won the series.

This thread is not about Heat s titles or Lakers 15 other titles. It s about 2002. You know that it was rigged and that it deserves an asterick and this is why you bought Heat s titles and Lakers other titles.

Yes of course. The 2002 WCF game 6 is widely regarded as the most rigged game in the history of the NBA.
Watch it again, and note all the non-calls that favor LA and how fast Divac and Pollard foul out, and the bloody mouth that Bibby gets called a foul for.
It's a disgrace to the NBA.

All LAL "championships" since David Stern took office have asterisks.
