Default I KNEW Lakers/Kings 2002 was fixed

http://sportsillustrated.com/2008/ba....ap/index.html

when i first heard the report on sportscenter i couldnt remember what year that semi-finals was and still cant say for sure which opponent the lakers went on to face in the finals (sixers?).... but there was no doubt (out of all the playoff series i have watched that this was the one that was most suspicious). it is the main reason i dont like the lakers to this day because as long as i have always felt the patriots were cheating in football, i have felt that the lakers were handed this series and the kings were absolutely robbed.

makes me wonder about the shaq/kobe's vs portland series also.

They wound up sweeping the Nets in one of the most boring Finals series ever.

I agree that the Lakers were pretty much handed that game, but the Kings could have and should have taken care of business in game 7 at home. Instead they pulled a choke job that would have made Karl Malone proud.

Sounds like game two in boston. What was it, boston with 38 fta and la had a whopping 10 fta.
Things that make you go hmmmmm.

As far as the kings go they choked it away like the patriots.

How is this surprising considering the NBA's past? This is a league that's been corrupt pretty much from the begining. Accusations of game fixing just prove what a worthless product the NBA really has become.

Is it really any worse than a league where the Commissioner pretty much sweeps almost a decade's worth of a franchise's cheating under the rug while the rest of the league's owners tow the company line because they just want it all to go away? If it weren't for the Steelers, I would be finding something else to do on Sundays during the Fall.

No, it's not.

It's a wierd day in sports when Major League Baseball, with all of their steroid issues, looks like the cleanest sport out there.
