I guess so. The NBA in the back was all about Basketball. Playing REAL basketball. the 80s style for an example. No hand checking, playing dirty defense, etc.. these days. The NBA want to make more money to bring more people to watch the games such as Game 7, High intense games. The refs i think sometimes or most of the time are just callin bad calls to make the NBA as a entertainment whore.

Yea everything is a huge conspiracy. Lakers missing free-throws and not playing defense in the 2nd half had nothing to do with it. Lakers lost plain and simple, hopefully they rebound well.
