Irving was way better than Curry. James is a great player but how many shots did he once again in the 4th quarter.
The NBA and officials brought Cleveland a title lol. The NBA has been ridiculous in terms of the numbers of rigged games / suspicious officiating for decades - and the NFL isn't far behind.
Yes, suspicious officiating makes James go off for 41 in Game 5, 41 in Game 6. Makes Curry only score 20 points COMBINED in the 2nd halves of Games 5 and 7 while playing at home.
No, suspicious activity is Game 6 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals. Still, arguably, the most rigged game in NBA history. Since you apparently don't know what a true "rig job" looks like, here are the quick details:
Sacremento Kings up 3 games to 2. Game 6 is in LA (I believe). Tied heading into 4th quarter. The Lakers, in the fourth quarter, shoot 27 free throws to the Kings 9. Several phantom calls against the Kings. Obviously, 1 is a big market, huge TV ratings team and the other is small market team.
Thank you for referencing the Kings and reminding me of that terrible heartache. I was pulling for the Kings and declared if they didn't win I'd shave my head (I know, not that bold as declarations go). I wasn't so much worried about losing my hair as I watched the 4th quarter unfold as I was worried about how terribly officiated that game was. ESPN brought up the officiating of Dallas-Miami in '06 but it's the Kings game you referenced that remains seared in my brain.
