It is very obvious the refs want the Lakers in the next round against the Thunder . After watching the previous game and last nights game they have been paid and told by the powers that be they want the Lakers in the next round . Somebody explain to me how in the previous game Andrew Bynum can get away with screaming at the refs , had to be restrain by several teammates and coaches as he continued to go after the refs and this big goofy clown did not get a technical . Somebody out in La-La Lakerland explain that BS to me . Going after the refs and this clown doesn't get aT called on him . Better yet explain how he and Gasol continually camp out in the 3 second zone until Kobe or Session's finally decides to throw them the ball . How can three blind refs not see these two big goof balls in the 3 second zone . Just tell the Nuggets not to show up and advance the Lakers by default David Stern . Better yet tell your Tim Donaghy paid refs that true NBA fans can see what's going on and they should attempt to do a better job of not making it look so obvious . I guess the lane parkers Bynum and Gasol will be up against the dirty hit you in the eyes intentionally and push you in the back going for rebounds Ibaka and Perkins . Will you Laker and Thunder fans can have it I won't be watching you clowns .

Thank you refs and God bless the powers that be!

Go Lakers!

No doubt! I watched one series in the fourth quarter Sunday night where Bynum camped in the middle leaning back against the defender (I think it was Mozgov) for 4+ seconds before the ball came to him, then did a double move and scored. Every time a Nugget drives, they are not touch fouled, they are hit hard. Result: No Call. Refs cannot call every foul, but this is crazy.

It's an insult to basketball fans throughout the world to allow Bynum to get away with calling them everything under the sun during the game and after the time out and not get a technical called is a disgrace to basketball fans . For Laker fans to be ok with the refs fixing their games so they can advance doesn't say much about about them . Why aren't the Clippers getting the calls when Grizzlie players are slapping them in the face and the refs are looking right at the violation but swallow their whistle . Bynum , Kobe , and Gasol are getting away with everthing under the sun thanks to who ever is officiating their games .

So you're ok with cheating ? I feel sorry for you if you want your team to win that bad . Maybe they should fix it so there is a Laker , Celtics final .

He's a Laker fan. What would you expect. Integrity? Honesty? Not likely.

Prove it! Forward your information to the head of refs for the NBA, and also release your facts to the national news outlets. What? you have NO FACTS to base your argument on?! TSTFU! LMAO !!

Just replay the last two games and if you don't see the obvious then you need glasses . The evidence is the games take off your blinders man . Then again I guess you missed Bynum acting a fool and disrepectful toward the zebras . But they allowed it and alone told me and NBA fans all we need to know . The fix is in .

May 8, 2012  09:00 PM ET

well the Lakers lost game 3, and it was close in game 4. The Lakers got swept last year, and now that they are winning games in the playoffs again the refs are "giving" the series to them? get a clue.

May 8, 2012  09:02 PM ET

oh nice i see you are a Clippers fan, which explains your dislike of the Lakers. the clippers are like the jealous step child that find excuses and degrade their smarter, better looking, and better overall brother, the Lakers.

May 8, 2012  11:12 PM ET

Smarter , better looking not ! Old , goofy , arrogant , ignorant , classless , whinners , and has beens that haven't been revelant since the days of Wilt , Kareem , and Shaq . Not guys that didn't go to college Bynum and Kobe that took forever to develope in Kobe's case won his 1st three rings because of Shaq , Horry , Fox , Harper , and Shaw . Without Odom , Fisher and Gasol he and Byrnum wouldn't have the 2 additional rings but jealous not . The Clippers and Dodgers will make the Lakers a thing of the past .

Seriously, I hate to burst your bubble, but the Clippers could win the next 5 championships (not gonna happen) and they still wouldn't come close to the Lakers in terms of respect in LA. It is what it is. Embrace it.

As for the rant, it's ridiculous to believe the NBA is actually trying to dictate the winner of a series with mandated bad officiating. That would go completely against their own self interests.

-3 second rule...you can't be serious? If this was called consistently NO NBA game would ever end. It would be a continuous 3-second violation.

-Star players get the benefit of the doubt. Not just in basketball, but in ALL sports. I'd bet half of Greg Maddux's called 3rd strikes were low and outside. That's just the way it is.

-No technical call? How exactly are YOU the arbiter of what should or should not be called a T? You have no idea what Bynum said or what that particular ref's threshold is for Ting someone up is. If you think a player should be T-ed every time he has an animated discussion with a ref then Lebron would be tossed by halftime of every game. Jordan wouldn't have made it past the first QTR of most games.

-No calls? It's the playoffs, duh.

This all smacks of sour grapes from a basketball fan who didn't see the results he wanted. If you really believe the NBA fixes games thru it's refs, why on earth would you watch them? If your accusations had even a SHRED of evidence, the NBA would be out of business. After multiple congressional investigations, of course.

ANYBODY can pick out a few isolated plays that they saw on TV and come up with a rant about NBA officiating. It absolutely doesn't mean the league is trying to determine winners.

Agreed. This guy's blogs are so negative, repetitive, and paranoid with respect to the NBA execs and officials supposedly playing favorites.

Ironically, if anything, it's his Clippers that got the most favorable "call" of the year from the NBA with the CP3 trade.

Can it be that they let the Nuggets win this evening to get Ron-Ron back sooner in the 2nd round of the playoffs or did the Refs change their mind about handing the Lakers an easier road to travel to play against the Thunder?

I won't let you burst my bubble C-C-C . I'm not saying they'll win as many championships but they will eventually will win if they continue to add the right pieces and get a seasoned coach . This is a young team on the rise and will continue to make some noise in the league if they stay healthy and together . They really need to move out of the Staple Center and maybe to Las Vegas . The LA Dogers will be relevant again in LA as a baseball franchise as Kobe continues to age the Lakers will decline and won't be the talk of the town that's my opinion and you and many other sports fans have theirs are we all right or wrong ? The one thing I'am right about is the lousy officiating in the NBA .

It's about rating's the larger the viewing audience the more sponsors and money corporations make . You think sports fans would watch an NBA finals featuring the Atlanta Hawks and the Denver Nuggets ?

You don't think the public thought the Ali VS Liston fights were fixed when Liston faked a bad shoulder in the 1st fight and got knocked out by a phantom punch in the second fight ?
When Liston was an ex-con and Ali was handsome , brash , flashy , and talked a lot of trash , who could box and dance he was exciting and America wanted to see him get his **** kicked .

With refs going to jail and college kids getting caught for point shaving like John " Hot Rod " Williams and others getting paid to blow games .

You don't think Pete Rose blew games ?

You think MJ took a haitus from basketball when his team had just won 3 titles in a row because he got burned out and wanted to play baseball ?

Yeah some officials make a few bad calls in any sport but to watch them blow call after call in the Thunder and Laker games makes you wonder why Kobe can argue every call and not get a T and thrown out the game or Durant can get continuations when he hasn't crossed center court , if you look like you want to foul him it's a foul .

Cheating and fixing games goes back long before you and I came along and I'm sure you know your sports history . You think things have changed since the " Black Sox scandal ?

I may have been born at night but it sure wasn't last night .

Lakers don't play baseball (as though baseball were a real sport) and the Clippers will never hang a banner in the rafters. Never!
