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.
Buzz said, "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.
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.
