I really need to ask, how many of those 27 free throws were actually made? I would assume Shaq was the one who threw the most and considering how bad he was at free throws well... seriously people

Okay, I'm a handball and soccer referee, in Europe, and I don't know anything about NBA. This honostly seems like a bad, bad, bad officiated game, but nothing more than that. They had a very bad day, and as long as referees are humans, that's gonna happen... Maybe they slept bad, had a fight at home the day before, couldn't handle the pressure (though they had experience) or something else... I've had games where I can't explain my bad dicisions, even when I see the game on video. These things just happens, like it or not. But it doesn't mean that the referees were crooked or a part of a conspiracy. But it's "easy" to blame that, because it means that nothing is wrong with the system, because it was the people inside the system that cheated. A good friend of mine, who loves NBA (but not these teams) has told me, that in his view, the referees wanted the series to go into game 7. No matter who were in front. The referees just wanted a game 7. That might be true, if the referee is a "company man" on behalf of the NBA. Maybe he's right, maybe not...

You can tell just by Ryan's body language that he knows it was fixed and he just wants to put on the front that he doesn't cause he's a Lakers fan. I think he's trying too hard to show that he's a fan. I'm a Pats fan and I admit when we get calls.

This kind of happened to me when I was playing hockey it was a playoff game vs Markham. A Markham player high sticked to get the puck down and then scored. The refs saw it and did nothing, also Markham had so much penalties that the refs are blind and didn’t do nothing

I’m a lakers fan and I was shocked after game 6. Being a basketball fan I was disgusted by the lopsided officiating. That year was pretty boring to be honest. The city was happy but that finals were horrible with a 4 game sweep that had no moments of excitement. I’d rather earn the ring than have it gifted to you. The kings were unbelievably good that year and it was wasted.
