The fix pattern I have been describing holds true.
The refs take out Dwight Howard and Pietrus and on alternate nights Nene and Billups.
Clutch point gifting abounds.
The fact that Cleveland or more accurately Lebron and 4 mannequins can repeatedly defeat and compete with a loaded and excellent Orlando team or that the Lakers, an aging and pathetic shell of a franchise can be beating a brilliant Denver team led by Carmelo, Nene, and JS Smith is very real problem.
And this is because, year over year, this tired manufactured 'Amazing' show will look more and more like what it is becoming, a Globetrotters vs Peoria Dribblers contest.
By denigrating actual fair competition for sneaker-inspired outcomes, the NBA is creating marketshare at the cost of integrity in sports.
I don't expect integrity to win.

Here, dear readers, is the final resting place of all weary Knicks fans. Yes, here is where one comes when James Dolan extends yet another contract, when the Knicks trade for yet another ambulatory star, or when said fan simply hits 'rock' bottom. In short, "the ship be" eternally "sinking" here. Welcome aboard, rearrange the deck chairs as you please.
