this kind of corporate BS thinking kills the league (and took the 2007 chip away from Phoenix)

They never apologized for not calling the push-off, or for screwing up two obvious shot-clock mis-calls in the '98 Finals, basically handing the game to Jordan.

So...there better not have been an apology for one regular season game.

And who's to say they'd have beaten the Jazz?

They wouldn't have.

It's one thing to have a ref call a bad call and for the league to not publically rectify it. Bad calls take place all the time... I think it's entirely different to allow a player to be ejected without some formal acknowledgement of the error. It's a pretty rare situation. I think it would only serve to aid the repuation of the league if officials publically acknowledged obvious mistakes like this. It wouldn't undermine the league nor the officials. It would make them look worse if it's obvious they are wrong only to see them pretend that nothing is wrong.

Lost by 8. Lost by 9. Won by 26. Lost by 12 (25-2 in 4th quarter FT attempts, Spurs make more FT's (30) than FG's (28). Should be 2-2). Game 5, ass-kicking, lose by 25.

Put up a fight? We didn't lose the series because we were mad about a suspension, at least.

well, the Suns did go intoa shell, but they were spent after going for it in game five and there was nothing left for game six.

sad but true

That's not anybody's fault but D'Antoni's.

Sloan > D'Antoni as well.

what ticks me off is that on the NBA highlights, they show Mopete get ejected, then they cut to an image of Carter from a few plays ago shrugging and smiling and then the announcer said:

"looks like Vince enjoys it!" (speaking about the ejection)







on the YES telecast, after the ejection, Carter went to Javie and motioned vehemently that he was just playing around with Peterson, and Javie made the motion that he did not know if he could call Peterson back.

because the refs have huge egos and dont like being shown up. they dont want to admit being wrong.

but MoPete or not, the Nets still would have won that game.



actually, it should not have been that close to even need a 3 point buzzerbeater to win. RJ was injured in the first few moments of the game spraining his ankle on a wet spot
