    I am a lifelong NBA fan who had the pleasure of seeing Bird, Johnson, Kareem, Moses and Erving compete (tho I was very young).

    I have to say that I have really lost it for the NBA and I refuse to give a cent to the league anymore, and I have gone to many games in the past.

    The league hands games/championships to teams like:

    1. Lakers
    2. Heat
    3. Knicks

    and I have just lost the passion anymore. The NBA need to realize that small market teams (and their fans) deserve a fair game every night.

    wouldn't you say that OKC is a small market city? they look set to make a run this year or next year. even chicago could also make a nice run provided that derick rose stays healthy.

    My post was more a commentary on the NBA pushing the Lakers/Heat than me endorsing small market teams.

    The media has a field day with NFL replacements refs, and NO way MLB would get away with it, but for some reason the media doesn't slam the VERY jaded reffing in the NBA.

    well then going back to your original comment, when has the league gave preference to the Knicks? they have been awful for years. even though they have carmelo and amare.

    and yeah the refs can be bad and never calls traveling when they should. but i do not think that they favor one team over the other.

    and yeah the game has changed so much since the golden days of the 80's. i was fortunate enough to see magic and karem play for the lakers. but i still love the game. can't help it i guess if your team keeps winning

    The Lakers benefit the most from the horrible reffing.

    I have seen a number of links to YouTube videos, great example 2010 Game 7 going into the fourth quarter I think the Celtics had a 4 point lead. Lakers got (I think) 21 FTA, Celtics 1. Pau Gasol alone was not called for an out-of-bounds (had possession with foot OOB) and an up-and-down, both plays the Lakers scored. Again don't believe me there are plenty of YouTube videos out there. The whole series was like this but in the end of Game 7 it was insane.

    There was the Kings vs Lakers Western Conference Finals 10 years ago ... I suppose there was no preference there either.

    And LeBron James is widely considered the most aggressive player in the NBA both offensively and defensively but only was called for 1.5 (just looked this up) PF a game last year. Really? In the playoffs it got worse. There were a couple playoff games where LBJ had 20 FTA and 0 PF. Really? Aggressive enough to camp at the FT line but no PF? It was like the NBA was apologizing for letting LBJ foul out 1 game. Horrible.

    Yes, the NBA definately favors certain teams/players.

    edit: The Kincks are a more recent preference but it has been there the last 2 years.
