Why is it that every time someone complains about the officiating in the NBA their answer is to fine someone. I thought people in this country are entitled to their opinion. I realize the NBA doesnt live by the same rules as the rest of us do, but come on. Are they afraid of the truth? I dont think they are biased enough to choose who wins and loses, but the officiating is just plain BAD. Your "superstars" can play 40+ minutes and maybe get 3-4 fouls and a sub can come in and play the same way and get 3 fouls in 5 minutes. It is so bad sometimes even the announcers are at a loss for words. I woder if they get fined too for pointing out bad officiating. I used to like the NBA, But now I might watch just the last few minutes of a game because the rest just does'nt matter. The NBA needs to fix the problem and then maybe people will quit complaining about it!!!
