    Lebron fouled PG, a foul is a foul is a foul (unless you’re a superstar on homecourt) so YES it SHUD be called everytime

    I hate how lewhore tweeted about resting his ankle before the game, makes you think the NBA is scripted.. ZERO chance lebron sits vs Indy at home (vegas line fluctuated from 2.5 to 3.5 coincidence?)

    Leigh- You are the worst skateboarder I’ve ever seen

    • JA makes sense of it for us says:

      If a first quarter foul is the same as a final 30 seconds foul then prepare yourself for refs deciding ~95% of games. At some point, you need to just let guys play.

    Not a foul (or at least worth blowing the whistle for). It is in the same category as a moving screen IMO

    I don’t know who’s going to be a first-time all-star in the west, but I’m betting either Damian Lillard or Stephen Curry is going to get his first all star snub. There are ~5 all star guard spots and 8+ all-star caliber guards in the west. In spite of his injuries, Kobe is probably going to get voted into the starting spot, and he’s slated to recover by February. CP3 is a lock for the other starting spot. That means there are 3 reserve spots for Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard and others to fill.

    Here’s the question, what would’ve happen if Paul George embellishes and falls down? because Lebron so obviously touches him that the contact is indisputable

    We talk all the time about not wanting players to flop, but if you’re not going to make a call on such an obvious foul, arent you encouraging players to embellish contact?

    I was waiting for someone to slip. Tas reference TBJ in then opening minutes of the show…and I gotta admit I miss the old format.
