The NBA

After watching Orlando/Cleveland, you cannot tell me that the NBA playoffs aren't fixed as a neutered puppy!!

Looks like Orlando is going to advance despite the lopsided calls.

I don't think they are fixed to the point where the powers that be decide that the winning team needs to win by x number of points, but there is no doubt that certain players with star power are going to get the benefit of doubt on calls and certain teams are going to be given ever opportunity to win any given game.

I like Lebron but that foul at the end of regulation was a classic case where if it would have been the other guy driving on Lebron for the game tying attempt, it would have been a no call or possibly even an offensive foul.

It's been this way for a long time. I remember Jordan in his prime hacking who he was defending to the point where if it had been done by some shmuck out on the street, he may have been charged with assault but no foul called and then when Jordan had the ball if the guy so much as looked at him wrong if MJ missed his shot, the refs would blow the whistle. I also remember how Shaq in his early years with the Magic couldn't defend those hacks that the Bulls had for centers but all of a sudden he becomes a Laker and a prime time team and all of a sudden he wasn't in foul trouble all the time. The list of star power players and teams that benefit from it has always been a problem with the NBA and I don't suspect it will change any time soon.

As a long time avid Chicago Bulls fan I can say with absolute certainty that I have no idea what you guys are reffering to when you say that Michael Jordan ever got calls that he did not deserve! LOL

(insert tongue in cheek here)

GO Magic, overthrow the King!

If they were biased, then how is the Magic up 3-1 in the series?

WCW,

MJ don't count. He was fouled every time they blew the whistle. No doubt about it. Been watching MJ since his Freshman year at UNC. Been on the Bulls wagon since the Portland Morons drafted Sam Bowie. Marvelous personnel move. Wasn't this same squad that drafted LaRue Martin 1st overall?

There has now been plenty of proof and evidence that the NBA is dirty.....still fun to watch though.

Sandy,

The NBA can tell the refs how to call fouls, especially if the ball in in lebron james hands'. But the NBA can't do anything to make the Magic miss shots. The Magics' team talent is too much for the NBA and Lebron to overcome.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
