The phantom calls on Dwight Howard are beyond ridiculous.
* All ball on his 6th "foul" tonight.
* The technical he got - what did he say? Because LeBron screams at the refs to "call the fu**in' foul!!!" and doesn't get a technical.
*Dwight has his hands up, LeBron runs right into him --> foul on Dwight.
Charles Barkley is the only member of the media - national OR local - to call out the refs for the s#itty job they've done - in this series and the whole playoffs. This is the biggest problem the NBA faces... the PI88 POOR quality of officiating.

come on magic its still BS make the NBA expalin thier actions out in publc,its pretty much known and accpetced they want the finals as Lebron playing Kobe in a one on one best or 7 series...make that devlil stern Answer for the obvious !

well the foul tonight when lebron got fouled by howard on the layup...dwight did jump straight up, but he still took a swipe at the ball, that is a foul.

The refs were terrible last night. I can't figure why David Stern lets Joey Crawford referee big games. Replays show that he misses calls right in front of his nose and then he calls more technicals than most any other referee. He likes to get attention to himself. It takes away from the game when he calls ticky-tacky and phanton fouls which put three players out of the game. Crawford needs to retire. What a distraction! The NBA needs to do its part to maintain the games integrity.

Blackmail. If Crawford walks (again), he can call out other refs for shady behavior.
But it's good that Stan is not sending his complaints. Remember, he publicly ridiculed Tony DiLeo for lobbying for the refs to call 3 seconds on Dwight. A "master of panic," would send a complaint. Plus, relying on the refs would be a sign of a mentally weak team. If the Magic can win despite poor officiating, why not use that as motivation to play even better the next game.

So a letter is on the way to DH from the NBA reminding him he has 5 technical fouls. What happens if he is called for two more? Is he out for the championship when we finish beating the Lebrons ? The calls are questionable (ask sir Charle and Joey Crawford has a walking stomach ache for DH. The ref's are changing the flow to the degree it's their game and not the teams. LBJ would have scored about 10 points without the favorable calls.

Deep 13 and any non believers:
If you have the game on record you can check these game clock times.
Fist quarter: look at the 2 fouls on DH. 2nd foul was not showed on replay at all! Review that foul which sent DH to the bench us up 10 threatening a blow out.(By the way when you have to put best player on the bench with 2 fouls in 1st q...that affects the out come of the game!
con't 1q; clock at 2:48 James goal tending
total 3 calls 1 st qt.
2nd qt: clock time 7:48 Rashard foul, bogus.
7:27 DH foul..has to sit again.
5:44 AJ flagrant foul call...you will not find one instance of this type of call in the league this year! Shomo fouls our guy gets punked ref protect. Not one other time this year...
Total 3 calls 2nd qt.
3rd qt; Turk foul @ 10:20
Clock 7:15 non call zeke on DH throws him down and lashes at DH head on mugging at the basket..no call only one I will mention so you can judge the difference on DH calls.
Clock 2:50 DH foul back to bench
3qt total 3 calls
4th qt clock @ 5:19 foul vs walk on Z
Clock 4:40 block vs charge
and of course the infamous Clock at 36 secs.
I am attempting to get footage to post of these calls.
Worst call of all...with no replay by network is the 2nd foul call on DH. Will some FBI agent with a set of balls review this please! It's outrages! 12 calls 3 each quarter to help Cavs try to stay in the game.
Le'gettingBroomed, the NBA and refs are ruining your gift man...stand up and say NO! Your getting pimped.
Problem is that a 4 game series with 20 point wins by Magic each game really screws up the marketing department. This after the Boston series is unreal.

The officiating blows this season. This is not the Lebron show. magic have worked hard to get where they are.
#9 May 25, 2009
i agree...but the only call that wasnt a foul was the block on dwight howard...orlando fans were even complaining when hedo hit lebron on the head on a jumper

There is only one other man in the larger media spectrum that thinks the refs have done a piss-poor job. One man who has been the champion of the Magic. That man is Skip Bayless (weird, huh?).

The problem with the call on Hedo for barely touching Lebron's precious head during a shot is that the refs watch plays involving Lebron so much more closely then any of the other players on either team. So the same thing could happen to anyone else & wouldn't be called. Dwight gets mugged before or during most of his shots but because he's a big man (center) it doesn't get called? That makes no sense and the rules as they are written do not apply differently based on your size...or your popularity

B*tch all you want...we'll see you at the Q in game 7. There's no way were bowing out this easy.
