The Oklahoma City Thunder were about to do it again. They were about to climb all the way back from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the 2012 NBA Finals .

Yes I did played in the NBA for five years and prior to that overseas for several years. I am coaching college ball now. I know my basketball, people only saw the game one way including the TV commentators saying that it was a foul I say no because based on the way the reffing was it should be a no call. KD flopped, Lebron barely touched him, he did not followed thru with the push. All five games played, LJ was hit all over the place ,even when he shot jumpers and he still averaged nearly 30 points a game. You could also say you hear first from me here, LJ is the greatest NBA player in history, he has done what he has done w/o help from the refs, MJ needed plenty of help from the refs.

Dude, anybody in an online forum can SAY they played pro sports or makes a bazillion dollars a year and you brought it up and proclaimed it yourself as a point of reference so prove it.

You should be used to the spotlight so informing people in an online forum should be a non issue.

Plus, if I was a former pro-athlete I sure as hell wouldn't be using a colleagues last name. I'd go by my own or at least a nickname. In T-Town they called me Showboat, the White Jordan or the great white hope. Put up or shut up "Ginobili".

I'm a MJ fan since the 80's BEFORE MJ won anything team related and I've played my fair share of competitive ball but in MJ's hay days, how many other Jordan type players were there that could take over and demand that much attention? Grant Hill comes to mind as an up-and-comer but Magic and Bird were on the decline and Stockton and Malone just didn't have enough around them...
Point I'm trying to make is yes, while Jordan was and IS the greatest NBA player he was unrivaled. There weren't a bounty of true superstar talent like there is today. Back then, most big men were slow and lacked agility to where Jordan could usually cut up and through a defese, now big's are agile players playing 2 and 3 spots like LBJ, KD, Dirk, Carmello and Blake to name a few. Karl Malone was 6'9. Barkley was 6'6 with 2" heel cushions and neither had the abilities of the aforementioned. There was Dennis Rodman who was a defensive juggernaut and who was one of a slight few and now there are several "shut down" defensive players currently.
The league is totally different and one needs to ask, could MJ have the same success in today's league as he did in his era? I think MJ would adapt but his game then, wouldn't grant him the same success now as the league is bigger, stronger, faster and most of all smarter.
Now, what if LBJ played back in the 80's and 90's? O...M...G. Period. Give the guy his due.
zzzzz blah blah blah. Ever considered writing crap for harlequin romance novels? Man don't you ever shut up. Same ole long winded comments that are combined with your split personality. Which guy is it today Justine?

I think it was enough of a foul for a superstar, because we all know a regular player foul is different from a superstar foul. I think the refs called the series very well though.

Did Referees Screw OKC Thunder out of Crucial NBA Finals Game 2 vs. Miami Heat? Well....Let's think about this for a second. The New Orleans Hornets had a 13% chance of getting the number 1 draft pick in the 2012 draft and yet they seemed to pull it off and yet they are or were owned by the NBA at the time weren't they??????? I don't think it's that far fetched to believe they would screw OKC out of a basketball game would it????? Yes, and with David Stern being of such great character and integrity....I'm sure he never allow something like this to happen. Ohhhh yeah, I almost forgot the lakers, Hornets, and Rockets all agreed on a deal that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers but even though all parties were in agreement who nixed the trade....Gosh that was David Stern wasn't it?????....No the NBA would never screw over any team or anyone...Not in DSL ( David Stern League ))

Overall, the series was reffed okay not good. They missed a lot of fouls on LJ, the Thunder butchered him each time he touched the ball and for that matter Wade also. The Heat was the better team, they played better as a unit on both offense and defense. They helped each other and none of that individual stuff. Westbrook was good and Kevin Durant was good but I do not feel that they trust their team mates. They took most of the shots.

I knew if Miami won, there would be ongoing controversy. You just can't boil it down to a call or 2, and cry like this. If OKC was as great as you all want to believe, then they had 4 games, REPEAT 4 GAMES, to stop it. It wasn't about the calls, it was about the PLAY.

Unfortunately it isn't that far fetched. I must admit there have been times where I asked myself is this the WWE or the NBA with it's staged drama and predetermined outcomes?

And you're totally right about Stern. He called the Hornets/Rockets/Lakers deal bad and then the deal that he approved for the Hornets was actually worse on them and on paper. Makes you wonder.
