I'm not a fan of either but only a homer would foolishly deny the evidence; it was SO blatant. I still remember this game when I watched it; my jaw was on the floor. I shouted the game is fixed at the TV when this happened. I knew I wasn't wrong. Regardless of what Ryan the homer Laker shallow fan believes, the truth doesn't lie. The game was RIGGED for the Lakers.

That Lakers fan is kinda annoying. Guess that’s what happens when your team has 16 championships. I’m also a Giants (baseball) and 49ers fan and I brag about them so he kinda has a right to act that way

I can’t even watch. 60 seconds into it you find out they are both homers. Well take it from this non biased fan, the fix was in and it was blatant. Just ask Kobe’s elbow and mike Bibbys nose. Are you can look at the “fouls” the kings were called for in the fourth quarter. This was literally the day I quit watching the nba. It became as rigged as boxing.

Ryan making fun of Scott Pollard is the most comical thing I've ever heard. Pollard was a professional athlete and a winner in the genetic lottery, who made millions of dollars. Ryan is a tiny reject created from some leftover DNA his mom forgot to swallow and his claim to fame is a youtube channel.

As a Laker fan, if this one series was fixed, EVERY NBA playoff game is fixed. There is no, "one series is fixed". Its either the NBA is entirely faked and scripted, or, the NBA is real and this theory is bunk.

Yo Ryan I love you but this game was rigged. I may be biased (my great uncle brought the kings to sac from Kansas City) but even if I wasn’t a kings fan I would still agree that this game was stolen. There is video proof lmao. I do still enjoy this series, no matter what others say. Just maybe try and be a little more objective about it? Love you guys. Sacramento proud 💜

If game 6 was rigged, and game 7 was in Sacramento why didn't they win? Since many agree they should have made the finals. The referees were different as well right? Can't even forget about the game that was stolen game 5 from LA. From Phil Jackson point obviously.

it is by system and not by occasion. why do you think, they allowing "more contact" in the playoffs. they say to "allow the guys to go more at it" ... lol-- when you allow more contact during the game you can go back to not allowing it, when it really counts, so you can call whatever you want and extend any series you want. if it is any close, we wont even notice--- when the teams are as far apart as in this occasion it stinks hkeavily and is really hard to cover up.
