No no no. Sloan and Millsap are not telling the truth.

All Jazz fans know that the reason why the Lakers win is because the refs want them to. The NBA is biased too and the Lakers get star treatment.

Plus the Jazz are missing two key starters. Never mind that they had them last year and still lost.

Why won't Sloan or Millsap call it for what it is? Oh wait, they are too classy for that.

Yes Buzz, they lead by example. Take their example and use it yourself.

Actually, I don't buy into that "Lakers are favored" conspiracy theory AT ALL.

First, the money is against it.

It is in the NBA's best interest to "spread the wealth" in terms of championships. Dynasties kill the interest of casual fans.


Also, if the refs have incentive to do anything, it is make calls FOR the Jazz.

When a series extends, there are millions more dollars available to the league, plus refs get paid by the game.

The more games, the more money there is for everyone.

It is just 100% against common sense and the financial incentive to believe the officials favor the Lakers.

If is far more likely that homers are upset and see it that way in their partisan passion.

Sorry, Buzz, but while your point about the Jazz missing two key players is an EXCELLENT one that should be talked about more...

The whole officiating conspiracy theory can't hold water.
