    Hey, everybody, now we got a guy who claims he speaks for "MOST NBA FANS".

    Then why is he here trying to convince himself and us and whoever else will listen that this thread is a joke and that it's over and we all got to move on.

    Yes Sir!  Right away, Sir! 

    But Sir, your chit is Tainted and Tainted in a big way, and just saying something ain't gonna make that Taint go away.

    Yes, it's a joke, a big joke, a big inside joke and no matter how hard you try you can't get in on it.

    You're just stuck out there with a Tainted Championship and a fouled up NBA.

    just for the nay sayers - I'll admit I'm not really sure the Celtics should have even been in the finals last year - and the 2008 run really made me wonder a lot about the refs, so - I'll toss that one in as Tainted as well, so long as we get that the point isn't to quibble about what teams is better, but to discuss at nausium how important it is to the game, for the league to satisfy fans that the games are being officiated at the highest level, and they are seriously looking at real improvements in an ongoing basis.

    Thank you for another post that wouldn't have been made at all except you really do care and you are really pissed that this thread may be completely correct. Keep it up...the more you rationalize and criticize about this thread, the Celtics fans and the lack of interest you have in a discussion about officiating the more emphasis you actually give the whole discussion. Explain your post otherwise. We are reading and want to hear what you have to say.

    Re: Tainted Championship

    "The Fakers got every lucky break, every 50/50 call from the refs down the stretch, and their free-throw advantage was huge. Kobe was terrible, got bailed out by the pernicious Kobe-loving refs time and again. The Celtics played admirably. The Lakers got lucky and they had a sixth man down the stretch. Phil Jackson is a smug cockroach. Fakers got a gift. "

    "Great game Kobe - very clutch. Great officiating - Celtics get a 13 point lead and then the Lakers are shootong foul shots every trip down and the Celts are gettin' smacked on the wrist with no whistles. No, congrats LA, it's just that it's a pathetic league and the Lakers can add another tainted championship to their collection (like the bs win over Sacramento in WCF back in early 2000's) - I'd cheer too if the Celtics had been the beneficiary of bad officiating in a league that wanted 7 games and a close 7th game. Still waiting for Jack Nicholson to die on live TV - maybe next year! "

    Just a sample of the comments after articles about game 7 on ESPN.com

    Re: Tainted Championship

    37 free throws for the Lakers to 17 free throws for Boston. Did the Celtics look like they were tired at the end of the game? YES Did the Lakers finish them off? NO, THE REFS DID!!!The Lakers shot 21 free throws in the 4th quarter. That is more than Boston shot all night!

    It was pathetic while the Celitcs couldn't get a whisitle on offense the Lakers had a parade at the free throw line in the 4th. The NBA is fixed. The refs knew exactly what they were doing. IN game 7 of the NBA Finals they decided to hand it to the Lakers in the 4th quarter. The NBA is like the WWE....PREDETERMINED !

    Another post from ESPN made moments after the game.

    Re: Tainted Championship

    It was very simple why the Lakers won game 7--The critical statistic: REBOUNDS. Offensively, the Celtics had a paltry 8 compared to the Lakers 23. That's 15 more shots for a chance to win.

    With an ancient team, old players tend to tire faster compared to younger players. When the Celtic geezers got tired, they started to grab, reach and began committing more fouls than the previous 3 quarters.

    All year long the Celts had SERIOUS problems holding leads into the 4th quarter. Why? AGE! Tired legs and bodies.

    The Boston Fundamentalists on the board wanted the Refs to turn the other cheek. Don't call obvious fouls. But there are rules, even for the elderly in the NBA. The only way that an inferior team wins a game in the NBA is when the refs don't make the calls and allow for grabbing, holding, pushing, shoving.

    Game 7 was all about physical play. The key for the Laker win besides killing Boston on the glass for multiple shots was the fact that the Lakers were willing to respond in kind. And it was beautiful to watch.

    Tainted championship? Its hilarious the Boston crybabies on the board, lying and deluding themselves into believing that somehow God will come down from the heavens and give their geezers a title they LOST. There's no shame in losing to a better team folks. You got to the finals. That was an incredible accomplishment. You just happen to meet up with a younger, more athletic, and better team.

    You want to say that Rondo is young? Well, Doc road him into the ground with no effective backup point. And Big Baby is simply too short.

    Lakers were the team of this decade and nothing's going to change that fact!

    The Celtics were losing the offensive rebounding the whole game but leading because their defense was holding the Lakers ot 32%. The real differnce in the game was the way the 4th quarter was officiated compared to the way the rest of the game was and even then had it been called both ways there would be no complaint here. It wasn't the refs started giving it to the Lakers who couldn't make a basket and that is the story. All the other rationalizations don't work since the Celtics were leading the whole game.

    The following is part of a laker post to which  greenkillme very nicely responded above and below I wish to make some further comments.

    "When the Celtic geezers got tired, they started to grab, reach and began committing more fouls than the previous 3 quarters. All year long the Celts had SERIOUS problems holding leads into the 4th quarter. Why? AGE! Tired legs and bodies. The Boston Fundamentalists on the board wanted the Refs to turn the other cheek.

The key for the Laker win besides killing Boston on the glass for multiple shots was the fact that the Lakers were willing to respond in kind."

    What got us tired ? Outplaying the Lakers for 3 quarters with outstanding defense holding their guy who walks on the Labrea Tar Pits unscathed to 6 for 24 (25%) and he was awarded MVP ? I don't understand why Laker fans wouldn't have commented that Gasol deserved this more. And, as mentioned,  we held them to 32% as a team. We were tired so were grabbing ??? When the Lakers got to the line 21 times in the 4th qtr. it sure enabled us & them to get ample rest so I doubt the reason so  many fouls were called was because we were tired !!!!!!!!



    AMEN !!!

    My little boy, who recently got into karate and was therefore a white belt, went up against another kid who was a blue belt (he was bigger and faster too). My boy kept scoring on this kid and truly dominated him but the ref just wouldn't count the shots. He would score points for the blue belt kid that he didn't deserve. I got the impression that the ref must have felt that this kid (mine) should not be beating this other kid so he was going to try his hardest to prevent this from happening. It reminded me of the Finals...my boy ended up in winning but it was close...

    Your wrong, buddy, fans do care. I have been to Dallas, Houston, and here in San Antonio where I have met a bunch of people who were disgusted with the officiating. A BUNCH who believe that the Lakers were gifted the title. Of those people only a few were Celtic fans. Sorry to tell you this, buddy, but the Lakers are seen by true sports fans as Fake Champions. As Fakers. They will always be known as the team who was gifted the NBA Finals. Boston will always be known as the team that beat up on the Lakers but was robbed of the title.

    Re: Tainted Championship

    When athletes have been done an injustice in a sporting event, they rush to move on & amend their wounds with a victory quickly in another game, another series, in overtime etc. And if they lose this very next match, they feel a bit comforted that perhaps they were truly beaten by a better team. Unfortunately, the Celtics need wait until next year. The fans, many present and former athletes, too,  wish to avenge a loss but waiting a year is frustrating so we are allowed to participate in a forum. I will admit now, and I can't speak for fellow fans, that my first few posts were mainly discussing the specifics of the injustice done to our team. Many other posts too have detailed the numbers, incidents of egregious fouls called, some phantom, many non calls that should have been awarded to us, our shooting 40%, fouls 88%(alas only 15 of 17), poor shooting percentage by the MVP (6-24 or 25%),  32% total by winning team, disparity in foul shots(37-17 with 21-6 in the 4th qtr)  and so on.  But, as I was sad, hurt, disappointed, I was mainly trying to vent, a catharsis if you will or cleansing or purging as much as I could these adverse emotions. Time heals all wounds they say and writing something out does help to an extent but I'm going to tell you now what has really helped me to get a bit over my grief.
     
    LA fans continued on this post citing that we are cry babies, are whinning and just should accept the loss as they were the better team. Many of us continued to post that we didn't feel this way & were not willing to capitulate to their gloating & delight that many of us were suffering from this defeat. Why did they continue ? Did they want us to bow down on our knees with arms/hands stretched out on the ground and acknowledge they were the better team---with a gun to my head I would not do so.  A better team is one who wins by 39 points in game 6 and to close out a series and not in game 7 by 4 points with considerable assistance from the referees. A Laker fan said this 39 pt victory was a fluke ! Now, let me say that I don't believe there was a conspiracy and the Refs wanted LA to win. Heck, if the Refs or friends bet on the game, they didn't beat the 7 1/2 pt spread. Of course, maybe they expected this championship calibre team with 20 more fouls shots to have shot better than 50% giving them only10 points.  Hmmm??? Maybe if time had not run out, they'd have been awarded another 10 foul shots and at 50%, the 5 extra points would have allowed them to beat the spread. Ok, Mea Culpa, I'm being cynical. So, Ok, no conspiracy, no fix, but there sure was a tremendous amount of incompetence on calls/non calls that favored the Lakers and the disparity in fouls awarded was definitely a fluke ! I've read sports articles from around the country that when they asked unbiased fans about game 7, they commented it was the worst 4th qtr officiating they had ever seen. I live in San Francsico and the Warriors have the Lakers as their rivals too and in Sports Bars when the Celtics lost and they, of course, were not as upset as Celtic fans but commented that the Laker victory was highway robbery !!! The following has nothing to do with this topic but the Warriors sure helped us 30 years ago trading Robert Parrish.  Sure wish the former Celtic great, Don Nelson  would have helped his former team by trading Monta Ellis to us. Would love to have seen him along side Rondo. Oh well, too bad Monta's not enough for Golden State to beat the Lakers.
     
    They say what goes around, comes around and for those who believe, maybe the Superior Being in the sky wanted to even things out a bit. It seems that Celtic fans are doing less whinning and it is coming more form the Laker fans. They just don't like it that we won't accept they are the better team. Had they won game 7 the way we did game 6 in 2008 or the way they did game 6 in this series, I'd have agreed and there probably would not have been a "Questioned Championship". You only have my word for this but had we won in exactly the same manner the Lakers won, I'd have been happy as they should, but I wouldn't be on Laker forums trying to convince their fans we were the better team. I'd have acknowledged we were lucky to win and the refs favored us. I'd accept the title & go on my merry way not wishing to discuss & defend our victory. Hmmm ??? I haven't read anywhere a Laker fan agreeing they were lucky they were gifted so many fouls! Why do many Laker fans continue trying to torment us & convince us of the merits of their victory. Seems they are trying to convince themselves and some acknowledgement from Celtic fans would help.  This is a reversal from initial posts in that it seems the Lakers fans are whinning & suffering that we do not wish to change our opinion that it was a tainted victory. If any of you Laker fans have any class, accept your trophy, the records will show you guys as champions & go away and leave us alone & don't try to get us to make you feel better about your victory. Many of you are not sorry for us so I'm not sorry for you and  you'll just need live with your guilty consciences !!!
     
    Some of the Laker fans' comments about Shaq being washed up, too old etc. seem a bit like they sure hope so because I read one comment that he signed with the DEVIL. How can a Laker fan not acknowledge that this guy got them 3 titles closer to us. Maybe they didn't like he was MVP 3 times & not Prima Donna who's still short of MVPs from Michael Jordan & maybe Shaq kept him from this. Laker fans while you are bad mouthing Shaq, keep in mind it was almost a "he go, I go" scenario & Kobe had him run out of town. Would have been too much for this "CLASS " organization to take Shaq back & let him retire there & there would be no question he'd have a much better chance of getting his # retired especially if they won another title with him. Hmmm. May Kobe would be afraid Shaq would get another MVP. How that man got it shooting 6-24 (25%) and not Gasol is a conspiracy to me. If you are a true Laker fan and an NBA fan too, show some class & wish Shaq well.
     
    OK, I'm off my soap box !!!

    AH yes, another Laker fan tooting his horn & the team's horn. It would be nice if someone else, unbiased, called LA the team of the year & decade.

    WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT TAKING AWAY THE TITLE & THE TROPHY ??? The records books will show LA the victor. All we are doing as fans are saying the Title is Tainted. I reiterate, the records will not asterisk it as tainted but we fans know(or feel at least) with numerous posts, statistics and arguments that the team obtaining the victory is usually the better team but we feel that is questionable and as you say, can go round & round discussing this. We enjoy doing it among ourselves but you Laker fans are not happy with taking your Tinsel Town Tainted Trophy and parading it down Hollywood Boulevard where it can be appreciated among all the prostitutes, derelicts, transvestites etc. Why don't you go away ? Why do you want to argue with us that it is not tainted ? If not, truth prevails, and you can go on your merry way believing whatever you wish but don't expect us to acknowledge that the Lakers are the better team & deserving of the title. Have a guilty conscience, perhaps, that some of what we have said has some merit. In short, you guys were lucky the incompetence of the Refs favored you with an abundance of foul shots that enabled you to win. i reiterate, leave us alone. Can't you go to some Laker forums & blow some smoke up your own butts ???

    Ok, I'm in the mood to let off some steam( I'm a Red Sox fan too & what an ugly loss today blowing a 5-2 lead into the 9th but I accept it as it was justified & not tainted) so reason for the 3rd post in last hour or so.

    I remember a comment(s) that "What have you done for me lately" should be applied when it was pointed out that we have 17 titles & the Lakers have 16 and also in our defense head-to-head out of 12 meetings we are 9-3. However, the Laker fan(s) cited that and I don't have the stats that their 3 were in the last 20 years while we had 1 in 2008 and the rest of ours were 20+ years ago with less competition as being an argument.

    In no way do I compare the accomplishments of our troops, the real heroes, to those of athletes. I'm a senior so relate probably more so than many to Tom Brokaw's comment the The Greatest Generation was during WW2. I mean this was 70-65 years ago and I do not want to diminish the accomplishment of our troops since in Korea, Viet Nam, Afghanistan & Iraq. When a military person puts his/her life on the line & is facing bullets, bombs etc., it doesn't matter that the war is now or 50-100s of years ago. I am a USMC former officer in the Viet Nam era-actually it was the draft after college that brought me out of New England after 21 years. if you've read my other posts I've mentioned I live in Ca now but in SF, a quaint town very much like Boston, and not LA ---UGH !!!

    So if the Greatest Generation of citizens & military was some 65+ years ago, then the value of the majority of titles by the Celtics & their great players 20-30 years ago should in no way be diminished because our closest opponent has more recently.

    Strange that LA has a tough time giving accolades-they may have but I just haven't read much about it to the Hall of Famer, George Mikan, & the Minn Lakers. Seems they were a team like the Celtics of old whose accompliments can't possibly be compared to the Lakers of new.  Aha, not a doubled edge sword, however, as they sure enjoy using their titles to include in their 16.

    Yup, I know, I'm a bit "tongue & cheek" but a lot of truth in humor they say !!!

    I don't believe one bit of it. Based on your side's extreme bias (shown on numerous posts whining that the actual calls in game 7 were bad), I would say none of you would ever have admitted that the calls are bad calls (favoring the Celtics) in that hypothetical case.  So your side would surely say: "what bad calls? the ref didn't favor us. We won it fair and square".

    "The Celtics fans are whining here because they have no guts to admit that the Lakers were better. Doing so would be considered weak by their fellow fan".

    So,  the more you post about "tainted championship", the stronger belief you show that the Lakers were better than the Celtics. How do you like that?

    I reiterate, any Celtics fans who continues, is too coward to admit the truth that the Lakers were better.

    [QUOTE]When I wrote the following:   " What the Cow and others fail to recognize is how much fun we're having here and how much fun it is to see the shoe on the other foot and to see the agony this thread causes the trolls who once tried to swamp our board with their pond scum rhetoric."  I guess it was just too far over the GlassCows head.  You are more than welcome to help us on toward 700 and then ta ad infinitum & den sum, ifin youse so desires. We love hearing the whining coming out of LA trolls.  It means we're really getting to them. It also means that they can't help themselves, can't stop posting on this thread even though all they get back is well deserved mockery and ridicule. I guess that besides a Tainted Championship LA has a whole bunch of fools who are just too dense to get it. But keep tying to convince us:  we need the laughs.  Plus, it's a long way to ad infinitum. Stern & Taint:  Ifin ya want Tainted Milk, we ken fix ya up wit a GlassCow.

    Widowski, are you really that silly to think that helping you to 700 is a negative? why?

    And all you folks are doing in return is whining and baby crying. Why do you feel honored with this kind of behavior, instead of taking a defeat like a man when your team was outplayed, is obvious. That's what wuzzup said: posttraumatic stress disorder, or PTSD ...

    There are two types of cure for this sympton:

    1) The Celtics win a championship in the near future.
    2) The Celtics get bounced in the 1st or 2nd round year in year out in the forseeable future; then you would really appreciate what happened this year. "I would rather lose to the Lakers in a final game 7 then watching this kind of crap. Afterall, at least it keep us excited well into June".

    Which one do you see is more likely?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tainted Championship : Then why did this "inferior" team lead for most of the game until the ref's became involved?

    Simple, because the game is 48 minutes long, not 40 or 42...

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tainted Championship : What I did in the days following the game was go on blogs and comment pages in the following cities....Miami, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Washington, San Antonio, Denver, and of course Chicago and the discussion of the game was overwhelmingly critical of the officiating. I also read comment blogs on the NBA pages of Fox, Espn, and Sports Illustrated and there was tremendous support for the same proposition that the game was handed to the Lakers. Some of those comment blogs are still there and can be seen. [/QUOTE]
    Talk is cheap. You make this bogus claim, back it up. Show us the blogs, forums.

    Afterall, I can easily counter with:

    What I did in the days following the game was go on blogs and comment pages in the following city: Boston, Boston.com in particular, and the opinion was that the Lakers was the better team. Celtics fans even congratulated the Lakers. I also read comment blogs on pages of the media, and there was tremendous support for the same proposition: the Lakers were the best team. That was even more obvious after the Lebron "decision".
