Inside The Nba Round Two Eastern Semis

Detroit Pistons win 84-82!! even at 3-3 in games....

So hoopsters, Rasheed comes back! and 4-8 from the 3pt line....and this AFTER lookin like an *** w/ his predictions...and ankle injury.....even tho Detroit won, it is getting to be more than the average fan should have to watch to see the officiating so lopsided.....did NIKE (who owns the marketing rights to LeBron) buy out the league offices, and dictate that he would be annointed??
The guy is the next big thing in NBA history, and before he's done, people will forget the Doctor/Magic/Bird/and maybe even Michael, this guys the whole package..6'8" strong, quick, and basketball savvy WAY beyond his years....memo to the Eastern conference, it's gonna a long several years if he gets any talented teammates!! SO>>>>he doesn't need to get EVERY call EVERY time, hell he was so called fouled 5 seconds after the ball was gone!! and he uses his strength to shed defenders, but that's NEVER called...it's almost become a joke to see...he either gets an uncontested lay-up or dunk..or a foul is called..then poor Rip Hamilton is assaulted at crunch time...and the zebras look the other way....and he 'turned the ball over' according to the announcers!!
memo to David Stern.....if the game is to have any integrity..there has to be at least SOME balance in the whistles...I know the NBA is dying to market LeBron...but he doesn't need help from the zebras!!!!
Now, back to the game....nobody took more than 9 freee throws except LeBron with his 18!!!! and did you see the pressure shots by Chauncey..with a defender choking him?? and Rasheed sandwiched by three guys?? where was the 'and one' on those plays???
But, as I humbly predicted, the PISTONS NEVER!!! give up...or panic....and did get this critical win to bring the series back to the MOTOR city.....where they will prevail...unless 5 officials work this one, and all of them have #23 and 'we are all witnesses" T shirts!
Kudos to ancient Lindsey Hunter, who is all of 6' covering Lebron at 6' 8" and doing a respectable job.....and to 'Sheed' for not hiding under the pressure..and to Tayshaun Prince for steady play throughout.....
Lastly......can't say enough about LeBron...who's out there with castoffs from the CBA..but is so great...that they are still competitive....if he gets some talented teammates, the road to the title will definitely go thru (UGH) Cleveland!!!!!!!
