      I bet you all that if u dig how corrupt NFL officials are. There will some serious consequences. NBA and NFL is all fixed.

        2002 was definitely the year that the NBA robbed Sacramento of their Championship. No doubt about it. But there's nothing that can be done about it now unfortunately.

          This host's attempt at comedic timing and satire is flat. Booooring. Go back to working at the GAP or whatever you did before you decided you wanted to be a dull sports analyst with zero skills.

              anybody that saw that game knew the refs three that game in favor of the Lakers...Even Walton and the announcers were saying that as well

                  When this came out in 2007, I stopped watching the NBA and refuse to watch it til this day!

                    We all know that MJ is the GOAT but watching the Bulls games were terrible. Especially the Playoffs it never failed that whoever they played two or more of the other teams best players stayed in foul trouble. That series against the Washington Bullets till this day is one of the worst along with this video

                      There's another video that shows Shaq step over the free throw line all night which helped his percentage.

                            Even though the Kings were robbed, they also shot themselves in the foot in game 7. If you lose in OT and Shaq shoots better from the line than you do collectively, that's on you. And Peja airballed that three to win the game; a shooter that good who misses that badly usually only does that because he can't handle the pressure. Of course, the whole team was bricking threes (2/20), so I shouldn't just put it on Peja.

                                If you don’t think this series was fixed- watch the LA series before this against Portland... it is why I stopped watching the NBA...the fix is still in -only the players are in on it too

                                  It’s like all the evidence is that it’s rigged. But the character of the whistleblower? Look at the facts and it is obvious it was rigged. David Stern is hardly Mr Character either. Kings were robbed

                                      "There was super offensive trash talk from Shaq"

                                      Shaq: "I'm not worried about the Sacramento Queens"

                                      I don't know how much of a wuss you have to be to find that lame trash talk "super offensive" lmao

                                            At this point, it's more a conspiracy theory to believe that the Lakers won that series in honest fashion.

                                            What's more? I really don't give a damn about either of those teams. But I have two eyeballs, a brain and am a homosapien. He'll, even a blind, brain dead, monkey could see that the fix was in.

                                                The NBA has been scripted on many separate occasions.

                                                  Shaq calls em queens and somehow that is "super offensive" trash talk. The world has become so soft. Also this was not a "conspiracy." It happened. It was blatant. The only NBA fans that deny it happening are moronic Laker fans and David Stern.

                                                    If the league is rigged then why support it by spending money to keep it going .

                                                      The whole 27 to 9 free throw argument is stupid. Those numbers shouldn't necessarily be even or close. Fouls should be called because they're fouls, not to give teams the same amount of free throws

                                                        Even with all the bad calls this was a great series! I'm sure if your a Kings fan you don't wanna hear that and I don't blame them for that

                                                          I guess the refs fixed Games 3 and 4 also when the Kings blew two 30 point leads (winning game 3 and losing game 4). Leave it alone already. Kings choked and they know full well the series shouldnt have gone to 6 games.

                                                            So by the conspiracy theorist's logic, if the refs were cheating for the Lakers in game 6 well then they must have been cheating for the Kings in games 2, 3 & 5 to ensure a 7 game series.

                                                            This is just flat out bs. The Kings choked and lost their composure in games 6 and 7. They had no body on their team that could counter Kobe and Shaq's inside game. When you have two of the best players in the league on the same team whom score the majority of their points by driving to the basket (Kobe) or dunking in the paint (Shaq) their opponents are going to rack up big foul totals-especially when you have such "great" HOF defenders like Vlade Divac and Scott Pollard (sarcasm yes with "HOF...." part)

But yeah it was ugly what the NBA did that year to the kings the Lakers were going to lose it was Sacramento's year they had the team but they wanted the storied franchise lakers who bring more money in than a small market team from Sacramento many never heard of. Game 6 kings would have won and went on to smash the nets it was a travesty in the 4th period you knew something was foul when a blatant elbow from Kobe ray charles could see wasn't called but christy going after the ball was called a foul Webber all ball even took it on the block was a foul i sat there thinking they want the lakers to win they gave them the game ive always hated the lakers i believe they did the same to Dr.j and the Sixers in the finals bcos lakers were showtime im not sure on that but i was a julius erving fan. But its terrible the league could do this its hard enough to get to the finals after 82 games plus playoffs to have it all taken from you kings had the best passing tandum even when pollard and divac came together. They should of cancelled that championship bcos the lakers didnt earn it it was given to them and the kings have never been the same and shaq went to work for the kings how ironic
