I said this before, Kobe shot 6-24(25%), the team 32% and 25-37 (68%) of fouls and only 1 out of 2 (50%) of the 20 extra foul shots-this by a championship team-give me a break !!! So, had the Celtics done this, I'd been happy they won but very thankful to the Refs for allowing them to do so!

    And if the refs had not called so many fouls and the Celtics had won game 7, would you have been proud of shooting 32.7% in the second half and getting trounced -- that is the correct word, "trounced" -- on the boards?

    It's not essential to the pleasure I get in seeing my Laker team win that I see them do it by "dominating" their opponent. Winning a tough, hard-fought game is every bit as wonderful -- and more so -- than grinding the Celtics' faces into the dust.

    But you and I have very different attitudes about what constitutes a "sporting" event. I seem to have greater respect for the Celtics than you do.

    Please forgive me for pointing this out to you: You're the one, not I, who can't stand the truth.

    The truth is reflected on the scoreboard.

    Who cares whether you accept it or not. History will show that the Lakers won the championship in 2010, not some whiny Celtic fans think that the Lakers were handed the game by the refs.

    You are the one who is in denial. The Lakers were handed game 7. The Celtics made shots in the second half of the fourth quarter. The Lakers made foul shots. The truth is that the Lakers were given trips to the line they didn't deserve. The truth is the Celtics were outplaying the Lakers at the end of the game. The truth is that Gasol wouldn't have gotten that rebound, the ball wouldn't have been off  Garnett, Pierce would have been fouled instead of the call being he lost the ball, Garnett would have been shooting two foul shots instead of it being called a block by Garnett, the truth is it would have been callled a clean block by Garnett on Kobe instead of a foul....the truth is Fisher would have been called for holding on Ray Allen...the truth is that the Lakers did not deserve to win this game. They did not out play the Celtics well enough to get the win and the only way they won was because the referees did a horrible job.

    That is the truth and you and I and every other NBA fan lost something when the refs blew it. We lost the chance to see a game played by two very competitive teams where at the end we could say the Lakers or the Celtics won it fair and square instead of saying the refs blew it and the game was given to the team that didn't deserve it.

    wuzzup, you hit the nail on the head my friend! I think it's funny that the longest thread on this Boston Globe discussion board is about how the refs gave game 7 to the Lakers. I see this as showing the true colors of Celtics fans. No class. This is what the fans of a team with no banners would do. I guess I shouldn't be that surprised since all you guys have had is 1 title in the past quarter century.

    Thank you for the sane, mature, post.

    However, Rehan Choudhary is a chemical engineer. I don't know what qualifies him as an acute critic of NBA officiating -- other than that you agree with his analysis.

    What is particularly disturbing is that there was a re-play review of the foul called on Kobe's three-point attempt. That review supported the call. Elsewhere on this site people have complained bitterly about how bad the calls were. But Choudhary's reliability as an impartial observer is seriously undermined when he specifically chooses that one to fortify his arguments.

    To parrot what Choudhary says, but in a way that shows how equally applicable his words are to everyone, when someone says the refs handed the title to the Lakers, the Boston fans won't complain.

    But I certainly agree with the rest of his article: The Celtics lost. They played poorly and could not match the Lakers' offensive rebounding. Boston was not the team it was two years ago.

    You wish that were true. The truth is that just like 2002 this tainted title is going to remain part of history. How many times a year is the 2002 debacle mentioned in an article about the NBA each year? Hundreds if not thousands. You are never going to live it down. This was a gift to the Lakers. This was a theft from all fans of the NBA and not just Celtic fans. You don't get it do you?

    My nerve!  You really get terribly emotional about these matters, don't you?

    It's like this: I say po-tay-to, you say po-tah-to, I say to-may-to, you say to-mah-to. You keep hollering those weren't real fouls, and I holler back, yes, they were. You keep hollering the Lakers shoulda been called for fouls, and I say no, they should not. You say the Lakers did not out-play the Celtics and I say they did. (Incidentally, the Celtics say so, too.) So we're at an impasse, aren't we? And the fact that you dig up some guys who are fans of other teams to agree with you doesn't make your point of view any more accurate than mine. I could as easily cite you to non-Laker guys who've posted on this site who agree with me.

    But you get even crazier: It's one thing to say that too many fouls were called against YOUR team and not enough fouls were called against MY team. But you go off into the wild belief that the Lakers would not otherwise have scored if they weren't at the foul line. You assume that if the foul calls were different Boston would have kept doing what you claim they were doing in the fourth quarter, but that the Lakers would not. You keep trying to freeze-frame history to suit your prejudices, not the facts.

    The only thing anybody "lost" by all this was Boston losing a championship. And fans like you? You've lost all sense of proportion and of sportsmanship, along with your minds.

    Are we all supposed to be impressed with the length of time you've been posting on this site? Do you you claim some sort of seniority that allows you to present hogwash and call it reasoned judgment?

    First, bleach your fragile ego of the notion that I'm somehow stalking you. I'm simply replying to everybody with whom I disagree. I don't know you from Ebenezer, much less from Adam. Your posts are no more articulate or pointed than those of anyone else.

    All I really know about you is this: You make grand gestures as if you're being more mature or adult than your opponent, then quickly turn about and nip at his pants leg like a Pekinese. You have the exaggerated idea that what you say matters. The only way you're willing to "move on" is if you have the last word. You can't handle it if I'm the one who walks out slamming the door behind me. That's the one thing you can't bear, isn't it? Because I don't care what you think about me or how I look to other guys on this site. Most of them just think I'm an obnoxious Laker troll no matter what I say and no matter how often or how well I say it. So I'm liberated from all your silly cant about "Character is what you show when no one else is lookin'."

    Character is also shown when the eyes of Texas are upon you. And we can all see what kinda character you got.

    By the way, Mr. I've-Transcended-All-This . . . you gonna let this be the last word?

    Nice article.  Agree that lakers won't complain, and agree that was one of two calls I had the most trouble with.  (Gasol traveling was the other).  It is over and done with now, and I will stick to my theory that in the NBA, more than any other league, the HOME team usually wins close playoff games.  For whatever reason, I've even seen research that says the refs are so close to the action they are actually AFRAID to call one on the visitors  (bring back Richie Powers!!).  Let's move on to this current season, and hopefully four great quarters in Game 7 instead of 3.  If we blow them out, like 2008, we take the refs right out of it!!

    just to add more flavor to the conspiracy theorists, do you think the lakers players knew they would get the calls in the 4th quarter?  ever seen gasol upfake and lean weakly into a defender and get a call before?  tucking your shot under a defenders arm is classic NBA move, but Kobe doing it with the game on the line leaves the game in the officials hands, Artest plowing into Pierce looking for a foul?  did those players make any of those moves in the first 3 quarters?  I don't have a copy of the game 7, but watching replays makes me wonder - what were they thinking, those are all really horrible plays unless you know you're getting a call.

             Could seeing all those celebrities sitting around the court have a psychological effect on the officials?  Maybe the refs don't realize it but they are getting a little star struck on the court.  Consider, LA is associated with Hollywood. Hollywood is associated with the Television Industry.  The Television Industry is associated with the NBA. There could be some kind of mental connection.  Now I could be wrong, but do you think the officials could be subconsciously biased towards making calls for the Lakers ??

    Lakers were the better team in '84 and '86 and '08 -- and throughout the 'sixties for that matter -- yet somehow managed to lose.

    This is up there with Glass Cow Ranger as THE dumbest thing ever written on this thread.  (He claims we lost on purpose in the 90's to avoid playing the lakers)

    The better team won, the better team ALWAYS does.  That means we were better 17 times, you were better 16 times. 

    As Miami may find out, having the best players doesn't necessarily mean the best team (see lakers of 60's, '84 and '86.......not 2008, though, we were clearly better, and you're lucky you won two games!)
