The Boston Celtics were screwed last night by the worst officiating in the NBA in recent memory in a big game and judging by the fact that the NBA refs are wretched most of the time is saying a lot. I would much rather be writing about a great finish with a player like LeBron James or Rajon Rondo winning the game, but neither did. It was the officials putting the dagger in the hearts of Boston. This should never happen. The refs gave Miami this game.
This was huge because LeBron James continued to choke in the big moments. LeBron missed big shots in the fourth quarter and in overtime. He also missed key free throws. However, no big deal because David Stern’s army made sure Bostn would not win this game despite Rajon Rondo scoring an amazing 44 points by burying big jump shot after big jump shot.
The Celtics were screwed at every corner in a pivotal overtime during the final minutes. First a blatant foul by the dirty Dwayne Wade as he struck Rajon ROndo in the head hard going to the basket was blatantly ignored. Next on the ensuing possession for Miami Dwayne Wade is allowed to kick Kevin Garnett in the mid section to create separation and not only was credited the basket, but given the foul call for an and one. This gave Miami the game. Boston gave all they could, but no one can win against 5-8 with the refs in Miami’s pocket.
David Stern should fire each one of these guys and issue an apology to the fans of both Miami and Boston. He then should add about three more officials to every game so there will be no calls missed due to the out of shape useless guys that cannot make the right calls that clearly need help do not continue to ruin games. However, seeing as how the NBA hype machine ball washes the Heat and wants them in the Finals, I am just not seeing Stern fixing the problem that has plagued this league for years. Until he does something the NBA is no better than the WWE. Remember Go Green Or Go Home!!!!!!!!
