Laker conspiracy theorists are having a field day with this one.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ espn/wire?section=nba& id=1745213

The NBA acknowledged Thursday there was an officiating mistake in the final minute of the Los Angeles Lakers' 112-111 victory over the host Denver Nuggets.

With the Nuggets leading Wednesday night's game 111-109, a shot by Denver's Andre Miller appeared to brush the rim and barely beat the shot clock. Teammate Carmelo Anthony got the rebound, but the whistle blew for a shot-clock violation. The officials huddled and ruled it was an inadvertent whistle, resulting in a jump ball.

The Lakers won the tip, leading to Kareem Rush's winning 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left.

But NBA senior VP Stu Jackson said Thursday that there shouldn't have been a whistle on the play.

"That call was incorrect because the ball, in fact, hit the rim," Jackson said. "This was an unfortunate call at a highly critical point in the game, and we very much regret the error."

So, officiating can cost a team a game, but if a COACH or PLAYER says so, they get a fine. Good work NBA!

The Nuggets were completely JOBBED last night. In addition to the shot-clock flap, Shaq had an early jump on that final tip and, naturally, instead of making a call the refs stood around with their hands on their dicks.

Screw you, NB-GAY.

Follow-up. Ref gets suspended. Nuggets still lose.

The NBA acknowledged Thursday there was an officiating mistake in the final minute of the Los Angeles Lakers' 112-111 victory over the host Denver Nuggets and suspended the official.

With the Nuggets leading Wednesday night's game 111-109, a shot by Denver's Andre Miller appeared to brush the rim and barely beat the shot clock. Teammate Carmelo Anthony got the rebound, but the whistle blew for a shot-clock violation. The officials huddled and ruled it was an inadvertent whistle, resulting in a jump ball.

The Lakers won the tip, leading to Kareem Rush's winning 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left.

But NBA senior VP Stu Jackson said Thursday that there shouldn't have been a whistle on the play.

"That call was incorrect because the ball, in fact, hit the rim," Jackson said. "This was an unfortunate call at a highly critical point in the game, and we very much regret the error."

The National Basketball Referees Association said the league suspended referee Michael Henderson for three games and summoned him to New York for a meeting with league officials.

The group said the referee had followed NBA guidelines in making his call, but made a mistake.

"Yet rather than a traditional fine, the NBA is out-of-bounds in its actions," said Lamell McMorris of the NBRA.

Speaking before the Lakers faced the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night, coach Phil Jackson maintained that Miller's shot didn't hit the rim and Anthony fouled Kobe Bryant as he got the rebound.

"You just see the ball disappear below the rim," Jackson said. "I've never heard of a decision like that rendered by the league office."

The Lakers coach said Michael Henderson got the call right when he ruled Miller's shot missed the rim, but was overruled by Jack Nies and Jess Kersey, the more experienced officials.

The ref who blew the call got suspended, so all the other refs did a little "protest" in games last night.

So is the NBA going to do a delayed suspension on Dick Bavetta for his Nick Patrick-esque officiating jobs in about a dozen playoff games over the past 10 years?



Wait…if it’s MLK Jr. Day AND Pat Patterson’s Birthday…who gets the token win here?-- Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking on a match between Mark Henry and Rico

MH: What’s a clever way to say that I have a penis?
CJ: Uh…Mark, nobody’s going to buy that shirt.
MH: How about if I say that I’ve got…a…uh…?
CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department.
MH: I know! I’ve got it!
CJ: Got what?
MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!!
CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”?
MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt.
CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say.
MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.

You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT!

By any chance, was Knick Bavetta the same guy who called the phantom four-point play on my Pacers in their '99 Eastern Conference Finals game against the Knicks?

That has to be one of the biggest bullshit calls in NBA history. And yeah, five years and one Eastern Conference Championship later, I'm still pissed about it-- you got a problem I can help you with?

Cuban will definitely do things his own way, but right now, he is beyond all criticism. That team INSTANTLY turned from a decades-long joke to a contender the SECOND he came in there. It's one of the more impressive things I've seen in sports.
