    In Response to International Basketball/NBA:
    [QUOTE]The rules and officiating are fundamentally different. The international game is called much more closely on traveling and much looser on fouls. It is the perscription to the growing problem that is NBA officiating. All refs have a bias. You can't completely resolve that issue, but there are some that are much better than others at keeping their bias in check. Those who can't need to find a different line of work because they are ruining the game. This is a problem that is seen both in international play and in the NBA.

    It's part of the game. Like Game 7 of last season's Finals, the refs called a lot of fouls against the Celtics but it's not the refs fault that Gasol got 18 rebounds while KG only got 3.

    If Perk is in there, no way Gasol pulls down 18 rebounds.....not that Perk is a great rebounder.....he averages around the same as Bynum in about the same number of minutes....around 8+ per game (although we've all seen him have a breakout game with 15+).....the point is.....he takes up space, is tough....very much an enforcer....his shot blocking was missed as well.....I'm not sure we'll ever see KG as the rebounder he once was....that's another reason I like Shaq and JON sharing time....if Perk can make it back we will have a very large three headed monster for 48 minutes.....

    not that i dont care about game 7, but it is more than that.

    P34,

    It doesn't have to be part of the game. People flop like crazy in the NBA to get calls. The league needs to toughen up and stop giving foul calls so easily.

    Don't forget Bynum wasn't even 50% for most of the series either...

    Here we go with the Bynum excuse again. When was the last time Andrew Bynum played at 100% in the postseason?

    Everybody, come on.  Let's let the Finals go.  It doesn't matter now that Perk was out in game 7.  Bynum was essentially out too.  But it's over.  We can speculate and throw "what ifs" out there all we want.  It doesn't matter.

    As for the International/NBA game, watching these World Championships, they are so different that it's crazy.  I can respect the difference in the rules.  However, what I cannot respect is the officials inability to officiate the speed and athleticism of the Team USA players.

    I have no problem letting the guys play physical.  I just hate to see the inconsistent travelling calls that take the flow out of the game because these officials are not used to the quickness of Team USA players.

    Not making excuses, just pointing out that the excuse makers have ammunition on BOTH sides. The weak gravitate toward them like flies.

    You are right, the excuses and whining is better left to the Celtics fans, they are the real pros when it comes to that, from the head coach on down. Besides, the Lakers don't need an excuse, they won with their starting center on one leg anyway. Reading between the lines, your post is saying that only Boston is allowed to make excuses, and I couldn't agree more. Otherwise, how would you softies remain upright?

    One thing I learned from this off season is how soft the fan base is in Boston. I always had the impression that Boston was a tough town, but obviously that was a misconception. I have never seen a sorrier group of excuse making whiners who just make things up as they go because they can't accept defeat like grown men. It is just basketball, and there is always next year. So, just keep flashing that vag, and all you do is make the City of Boston appear like a bunch of soft clowns. Way to represent............

    Marc Gasol? They should have held on to him.

    Judging by how well Bynum and Gasol dominated the paint in the first three games of the finals before the knee got worse, I'm going to go out on a limb and say Bynum's health was a factor.

    I was responding to stevekubersky, who downplayed the significance of Bynum playing injured.

    Please don't get me wrong. I am not complaining here. Just trying to be clear to those making excuses that both teams have had injury issues that adversely affected their play. The Celtics won fairly in 08, the Lakers won fairly in 10. End of story.

    I agree that both teams won fairly-  but to keep bringing up injury "issues" when you won is really low class.  I don't even do it when we lose!

    That is why I didn't say a thing to you about it - I reminded your Celtic brethren of it when they whined about Perkins injury being the only reason the Celtics lost. BOTH teams dealt with significant injuries.

    Misrepresenting others' opinions is also low class.
