jk. this was funny though. stuff like this is common with baseball managers and players. they're known to throw stuff on the field and really go after an umpire.
i couldn't imagine our very own PJ doing this though. he's rarely up off his big comfy custom made couch anyway lol

Baseball is the most comparible, even though it still isn't very close. A bad homeplate umpire, making bad ball and strike calls....is like a basketball ref. missing calls or making calls that never happen. main difference being. in basketball its fts. which are unquestionably the easist part of basketball. an uncontested shot, that can be practiced, and never changes.... in baseball baserunners are so important and hard to come by. and a run can be scored on any swing of the bat.....extra pitches are simular to that of fts except basketball has way more pts scored, so fts or 1 bad call doesnt seem like that bing a deal... coaches should be able to use timeouts to challenge plays. They risk losing a timeout, for you effecting the tempo people, its just like a coach taking a timeout to yell anyway.
Most of that is because we as fans dont hold the NBA accountable for any of it. The game itself has to much room for ref influence.
but then that its sterns plan, to take the "street" out of it. Stern and everyone else want an offensive highlight game. Thats why, when someone comes through the lane who can rise to dunk. Every single time it is a defensive foul.....please none of you bring up MJ. thats the exception, that man earned it. 6 rings. these guys now days, have won nothing, and yet to touch them is a foul and freethrows. How unbelieveably boring to watch pro basketball players shoot freethrows over 30 times...all because god forbid there Shooting % suffer....or not have a guy with MJ numbers in the league.
Case and point the jazz had 50 fts yesterday, 50! and we all know how thats been going for the thunder... who without there freebees would have been blown out, and we may have had more rest, aka no drew injury. There needs to be a head ref, that does his job. You miss so many calls, make so many bad calls then you should be fired....or refs who get a certian % of there calls right, get a bonus...
The guy up top hurt his team... it hurts nothing for bobby cox to yell. If need to the players can go talk to him in the club house mid inning.... nothing happens to change the scoring though. Hockey you skate down a man. Basketball, team gets freethrows. I love a coach standing up for his players. There is somthing to be said when you play for a guy that backs you up... someitmes i want phil cursing and screaming, but if theres one thing ive learned its not to question that mans methods.
