fouls are part of the game the only problem I see here is that the lakers are called for so few fouls. in fact has Kobe or Labron fouled out this post season. you need to stop drinking the koolaid

well its the playoff. expect those hard fouls and the referee has to be on top of the game. in the end, it will be the lakers in 6 games. now that the magic is leading 3-1, the lakers will have an easier time disposing this magic team. lakers in 5 games against the magic. that's a guarantee. kobe already told me his plans. go go lakers...

what a terrible attitude. the whole denver association should be ashamed of themselves. the fans included. coach karl is just as low and sad as his boys. you do realized that the lakers stopped playing in the 4th, due to all of the non-calls and the bad calls against them. denver didn't blow anyone out. kobe was saying what he had to say. that's what the bigger better person does in those situations. at the end of the day the lakers will still be able to hold there heads high. see ya tonight losers.

El Fallo Del Juez Es Inafenable!!
The referees decision is final!!! HA HA HA HA

no can do...no can do...no can do..

If I may suggest, officiating should be run by an
independent company.

Fellow fans, lets go boxing!!!

Should Nuggets win...and they won't....they will ever be known to have won by their dirty tactics...and George Karl should be ashamed of himself. I thought he was a better man and coach than that...apparently not. Shameful and disgusting.

NBA should impliment a kind of penalty assessment to officials that might intentionally oversees a foul. it's only fair for the players too. there were a few fouls committed that weren't call and nonfouls that were called in both conference finals. i say fine the official after carefully reviewing the questionable calls, but do it after the game.
lakers should pay no mind about their opponent's action or reaction to their shots and just concentrate on their game. PLAYERS, LEARN FROM D HOWARD AND KOBE. PLAY YOUR GAME!!!!

This is the same Phil Jackson that coached Dennis Rodman in Chicago, no? Shut your yapper Phil. You were no chior boy yourself as a Knick.

For the last 20 years the Nuggets have been soft and easy playoff fodder. They are now standing up for themselves and the punishment they took during this time. What comes around, goes around.
It's a great series. Don't be a Jay Cutler and start crying now!! Time to man up.

It's funny how they talk about "dirty play" because the Lakers always play like that,it's just that they are sneaky about it. And whenever they lose they have an excuse,"kobe wasnt feeling well"."they played dirty".
It's the fact that because their own fans support their excuses. The lakers are ball-hoggers and Kobe always wants to be the "STAR". They are not a team, I often hear of them being called."KOBE & COM" that's a TEAM??? I get that Kobe is a good player, however he's not the BEST. There are other good players, Shane Battier, Lebron James, Dwight Howard, Rondo etc. Please dont fancy KOBE. It's just sick. How come no-one ever said anything about how the "fans" were disrespectful to the Anthem when they came to the "ROCKETS" part, That's a shame they cant even respect that.

THE FAKERS DON'T HAVE THE "NUGGETS" TO MAN UP TO DENVER. WHEN THE FAKERS WERE ON THEIR RAMPAGE BACK IN THE 70'S AND 80'S, THEY WERE ONE OF THE MOST PHYSICAL TEAMS IN THE NBA. WHERE IS DIRTY KURT RAMBIS WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

The Nuggets didn't play defense last year in the playoffs and were criticized for it. They realized that the best way to defeat the Lakers and other opponents is to play defense and to play "physical." In reality, when you're intentionally tripping your opponents, that's truly playing dirty. It's no coincidence that Byron Scott referred to the Nuggets play as dirty and the Dallas fans started calling the Nuggets thugs/thuggets. I don't condone name calling but you've got to admit, the Nuggets physical style of play (resorting to shoving and tripping) is over the top. I agree with Phil Jackson, it's very unsportsmanlike and unacceptable. Why else would the NBA upgrade Dahntay Jones' act of tripping to a flagrant 1 foul? Hopefully tonight, we'll get more consistent play calling from the refs! Go Lakers!

The Lakers need to step up their street game since that is what the Nuggets are playing. Although, I will say this, if one street player threw an elbow or intentionally tripped another street player a fight would have broken out and the offending street player would have gotten a beat down for hacking. It's good sportsmanship on the part of the Lakers for not responding to the Nuggets dirty ball-playing. The replay video doesn't lie...we all watched the Nuggets get away with flagrant fouls and the Lakers get called for piddly stuff. I wonder how much those officials had on the Nuggets to win?

Kobe elbows, Bynum uses the 2 handed hammer fist to knock balls away, Gasol hooks every time is makes is spin moves, Sasha is known for getting under players skin "words from KOBE". And everyone wants to call the Nuggets dirty. Just admit the obvious truth and that is the Nuggets are beating the Lakers at their own game and are the better team.
