    The nba needs to do something about all the complaining to refs about calls and non calls

    Watching Harden Paul Lillard and others throw their hands up after every play has gotten out of control. Especially when you consider all the freedom offensive players have nowadays to operate.  

    The game has become unwatchable

    It doesn’t bother me. But maybe that’s because I don’t watch the NBA.

    I completely agree and because of all the complaining – as soon as the Jazz are out of the playoffs, the NBA is dead to me.

    I have to say I disagree, complaining happens when you have a sport where the officiating is so quick, subjective, and usually wildly inconsistent. Most complaints are valid.

    That Portland Denver series was great basketball.

      I have to say, this post is a flop.^^^^^ You must have studied and the James Harden school of flopping.

      Karl Malone and John Stockton were hand checked all game and bumped, and still fought their way through without pulling a Chris Paul fake flop and complain.

        okay, so I should clarify, there are some players that take it way too far.

        Harden is the worst, I refuse to watch any game he is involved in. He is doing all he can to destroy basketball.

        I saw Lillard complaining a bunch, but it was usually justified… and then there were the guys getting repeatedly shoved in the back by Jokic that were complaining that were also completely justified.

        Nobody compares to Harden in their ability to ruin the game of basketball in the worst possible way.

          I agree and disagree. My previous post was in jest. But here’s the deal, the NBA did a crack down on complaining years ago and now it’s back. What happened?

    I agree while also disagreeing on the merit of agree to disagree.

    Paul and Harden are in the ear of the refs constantly. I wouldn’t make a very good nba ref because all of them would be ejected.

    It is part of the game though. You see them in the ear of the refs and then make up calls happen.

      The fact of the matter is Chris Paul constantly falls over when someone whispers in his ear. There is also the report that he threw Steph out of a scheduled shooting session the night before game 6 cause he found out about it. That doesn’t seem smart, especially when it’s a common NBA courtesy for visiting road players to have shooting time at their gym. That kinda stuff gets around the league fast, no wonder he’s not well liked.

      Why poke a sleeping bear with a sharp stick? Dude is really petty.

    I’m still trying to figure out how so many of you still believe this ‘stuff’ is real.  Don’t get me wrong, the players can play.  But if you think the outcomes in playoff or key regular season games is due to the better team winning, you’re smoking someting…

      So last year the Rockets lost cause of Chris Paul and refs. This year they lost cause of refs and Kevin Durant wasn’t playing?????

      When your offense is based on scissor kicking into your opponent’s leg on 75 3’s a game, it’s not going to work in the playoffs. It’s been proven 4 of the last 5 Series against the Warriors.
