If it were only the one call it wouldn't be so bad but they made ridiculous calls against us all night.In the first half they gave Westbrook a clear path foul even though Collison was clearly behind both him and the ball and Griffin was even further back almost under the Thunder basket.That call was so ridiculous you have to wonder if Brothers and his crew have gambling problems.Then early in the fourth Adams clearly knocks the ball out and they give possession to the thunder.Then they call a phantom foul on Chris giving Westbrook three free throws and then develop sudden blindness when Jackson clearly grabs Paul's arm as he deflects the ball away on the Clippers final possession.The foul calling on Jordan was beyond ridiculous.I've never really believed that the NBA was rigged,but if they ever did want to intentionally fix the outcome of a game they couldn't possibly do a better job than they did last night.

Because he didn't know the rule existed I bet. You can't remember every rule and to be safe he just said it was inconclusive. that was total BS as the other angle in the picture of them reviewing it shows the ball in jackson's right hand. That it ended up being the right call after the fact does not make his reasoning valid.

The call according to the rules then. Whether we think its right or wrong, the rules said it. Nothing we can argue now.

Not even according to the rules... otherwise a player could retain possession if somebody slapped the ball out of his hand and it bounced OOB of his knee.

That's why the NBA still isn't invoking that rule, just using this "inconclusive" cop out.

I was so pissed i drank heavily and fell into the arms of Morphious

The clear path foul was absurd. Think CP did foul Westbrook. He doesn't brick shots like that. On the out of bounds play it was a make up call. They know they missed the foul so they lied about the out of bounds which is strictly against the rules Spell fix. Kenny "Matt never touched the ball" He didn't touch what's his names hand. Rules are rules a rose is a rose and the refs are sh*t

BUT THAT'S WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE DJ was out almost the whole game. We can beat them if the refs don't pork us. WE won once in OKC, actually twice. We can do it again.

Clippers Rule (an old school chant) Play like Champions guys

That's a crock! He is very very rich and very very competitive. It just plain doesn't make sense.

BaadMaster the bank thing is called "Sutton's Law" Willie Sutton was a famous bank robber in the Dillinger era. Somebody asked why he robbed banks. His answer was "I go where the money is" I don't disagree with your take at all but I like to forget things unless I can control them. Having said that:

Why are we surprised at the refs? We've been getting the same treatment all year. No for years. Remember that second technical on GSW that was publicly ruled bogus by the league and all the no calls against Blake. Zbo should have been ejected multiple times. This is business as usual. We are the team with all the High Profile non calls.I disagree about the Sterling thing. The league's fight against him makes the NBA's owners and management took like crusaders. People all over the world are complimenting the NBA. People feel sorry for us because of decades of victimization by a guy who purposely kept his team from winning. Fighting Shelly makes us look great and the league will do anything to prevent her from winning ANYTHING

As far as KD and RW being the poster boys, that is a stupid thing for the NBA to do. Neither BG or CP3 have tattoos. They are more articulate than KD or RW and RW is a jackass who's been benched. CP3 and BG have high profile commercials. They are also good looking. CP3 is a doting father and a strong advocate of traditional family values and is a strong supporter of the community. BG grew up in a story book family. Strong values in a small town and his parents are married. I'm not judgmental against single parents but two parent families especially when married a long time are marketable. Also his parents are classy. They are good looking, not over weight and nobody in the family is named Tequan or Jamita. These names are OK but they sound ghetto - sorry but that's reality, Again not being judgmental but Blake and Christopher have more marketability abroad than Antwan instead of Antoine or DeMarcus instead of Marcus or better Mark. Even Baron sounds ghetto. Not a bad thing just not as marketable. Women consumers will more likely respond to a good looking guy on a commercial than a tall skinny unattractive one. My mother was a near PhD. She PROUDLY AND UNAPOLOGETCLY admitted that one reason she voted for JFK over Nixon was that JFK was handsome. KD and RW do nothing but run around in their underwear. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE to screw us. The only team that is as "sexy" is Miami (I use the word in a non genital sense). We are the most exciting team in the NBA -lob city

Why is there a "Home Court Advantage" in fouls? Why do they "swallow the whistle" in the last minute of a game? A foul is a foul. We know why there is a $uper $tar rule. We know that some refs are on the take but it still makes no sense. They should be helping us.

THE HOT SERIES should be Miami LAC. Durant for the general public is a nobody. Non basketball fans would watch a battle between BG, DJ and CP3 against LBJ and DWade. The NBA could hype the shate out of it. Even the French might watch.

One replay/quarter for each coach and the problem goes away. People say all of those replays will slow the game down. I guarantee it won't because the refs will clean up their acts real fast

the game before chris did not know how much time was left on the clock...he did not have to shoot the ball..

oklahoma got the rebound and took a 3 pointer and almost won the game..that was the point guards job to do time management...

chris paul was playing (as barkley said...like a 5 year old)

and he wants to win a championship..

he is laughing all the way to the bank...2o mil plus all the cliff paul money...

and oklahoma is not willing a championship with durant and westbrook and fisher...they need some more talent..

keep dreaming oklahoma..

the closest you will get to a trophy is when blake tweets a picture of it to his friends in oklahoma Smile

Blake is the one who shot too early. You need to get your facts straight.

then why did blake have the ball with 18 seconds left???

the clippers were up by 2..they just needed to run out the clock,

oklahoma was going to foul...

the ball should have been in the hands of the best free throw shooter on the court....

this is for game 4 ,the game they won but could have lost in the last seconds..

great teams don't do that..

paul is a good regular season player...like john stockton..and griffin is carl malone..

how many rings do they have?????

If the Lakers get a top 3 pick then yes. If they do not then still yes.

During the draft lottery, I expect to see The Macho Man run out and whack Adam Silver with a steel chair.

Looks like we're getting another useless rookie to ride the pine this year, as long as we get our backup frontcourt...

Dan Gilbert obviously has illicit pictures of Stern and Silver together.

The Cavs probably have a 1.7% chance of landing LeBron James in free agency.....so I guess that means LeBron is headed back to Cleveland.

I'm just glad Lakers didn't have the top 3 pick. They would be all over Kevin Love trade. Come on Lakers, you have to add more than a pick to get K. Love.

Listening to Max Kellerman before and during the lotto drawing was priceless.

I couldn't stop laughing. It's great to have Marcellus represent.

Gold man is supposedly is in some kind of high fashion person,my take really is he was at one time some sort of pimp or drug dealer. I found his website once and all it will say is he made his money mysteriously, basically. In an interview when asked what he does for a living his answer was pretty much......well I love fashion and architecture. He has ST for the Clips and the Lakers and the reason is he hates both teams and goes to cheer against them every game. He head must hurt when they play each other.

He's with the blog that Arnowitz started before he sold out to ESPN. Got to assume he's serious about this proposal. Sounds insane to me, you get a starter with the 8 pick
