I'm not saying they should be even, but both teams have been very aggressive going to the rack this series. For the FT attempts to be so one sided is ridiculous. I understand it's because Jackson opened his mouth, but if the officials aren't held accountable for this stuff it will only get worse. Just my opinion though....


It's just the "Home Court Advantage", something the NBA has to fix if they ever want to compete with the NFL again.
Game 5 Kobe will go to the line 10 plus times, guaranteed.

Yea I know, I just don't get whats so hard about blowing the whistle when a guy gets "fouled" and swallowing it when it's a touch foul. It goes both ways obviously though, but its gotta get more consistent. It's one of the reasons basketball is one of my least favorite sports, the officials can make it an absolute joke way to easy. They aren't even held accountable for stuff like this. When was the last time you heard of an NBA official getting fined or suspended because they blew the whistle too many times for the home team.....

Bill Simmons said it best about NBA refs, when the news broke that an NBA ref was implicated for fixing games, it wasn't so much a shock that it occurred - the legitimate question that everyone had was "Which one?"

when they want to play and actually play as a team, they are unstoppable.

I foresee OKC winning Game 6 by upwards of 15 or more and then getting blown in Game 7 unfortunately! :(

Kobe goes for 32/7/3 and leads the Lakers to victory in the 6th and deciding game against the Thunder. I believe I heard that Kobe has scored 30 plus in 6 straight decisive 6th games.

So with that in mind:




There was and will continue to be a difference tonight however.

Gotta love the crowd reaction in the background of the Gasol picture.
