Exactly....You know it wouldn't bother us Thunder fans if we lost because of bad basketball playing, but to lose because of the bad refs is just insane!!! I would rather us take a 20 point loss if the Heat were outplaying us but that isn't the case!

The Heat are in fact outplaying OKC. Take out Westbrook's outsized performance in Game 4 and OKC looked mediocre at best. The Heat are proving to have more scoring weapons than OKC. Really, who's gonna put up big #'s outside Westbrook and Durant? Nobody, and that's their problem.

And Durant should've fouled out in Game 2. Talk about getting screwed.

The Heat won fair and aquare according to Scott Brooks, in fact the refs favored the Thunder. U all saw how LJ was fouled each time touches the ball and yet the refs looked the other way.

Only true haters would reduce the finals for a single un-called foul.I guess this is exactly how baseless haters going to be before they wakeup.

Refs were dismal on this game. They favored Lebron a whole lot. Ok I understand from to time they miss call, but as bright as day they were helping Lebron. There were numerous occasions but the very one stick out the most was Derrick Fisher flagrant foul. there were 2 choices foul or charge, but flagrant clearly showed me it has to be rigged. Sports this year has lost all integrity. I rather watch wwe!

I agree and disagree with you self proclaimed "Mr. Former NBA Player". While Brooks did say that Miami beat us fair and square that was clearly in games 4 and 5. Games 1-3 the calls favored the Heat and you're correct about LBJ getting whacked almost each and every time he drove to the basket especially last night. There were so many no-calls on LBJ it was ridiculous.

I believe the NBA should favor NO MAN. NO MORE MJ calls for superstars. A foul is a foul and it should be a level consistent playing field for all participants.

BTW Ginobili, you still never gave up your true identity and told me what teams in college you coached and what teams you played with in the NBA for those 5 years. I'm still waiting with bated breath here...

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.
