    Umm Idk, probably because 99.99999999999% of the time a foul would be called there, regardless of anything else. Have you ever watched an NBA game? You guys crack me up. HK is the only voice of reason.

    How are you clearly the more physical team? The series is 1-1 and the more physical team in each game has won. Its not the refs fault that majority of your 1st half offense came from the perimeter while Drew was down low earning FT's. The foul calls were even, the disparity came from the different styles of offensive ball.

    The Celtics have a smackdown mentality, ask Phil.

    I have, as a matter of fact, watched a lot of NBA games, and that wasn't a foul. His arms were straight and was making no attempt at hacking at the ball or his arms. It was completely clean.

    Kobe got to the hoop @ will during game 1.

    Keep doing that until they put your ass on the floor. Even when the shot isn't there, Drew, Gasol, or Odom are usually there for an easy lob. I knew from the start it was going to be a long game. You can always tell with how Kobe comes out. I hope he looks to get going early on Tuesday.

    :lol: I'd hate to be a regular member @ LG right now. That place is probably like Hiroshima after the bomb went off.

    LOL ok, who are you arguing with? My point is they usually call that whether there is contact or not.

    You were the one being confrontational sir, not me. If you read YOUR post, you can understand why I posted what I did.

    when a player has 5 fouls, they usually don't call that.

    ESPN said "whoever wins this game has control of the series."

    ALSO, PLEASE look at TLN chatbox.

    The series is TIED 1-1, and there are people that are already announcing the series 'OVER' and saying the 'Lakers are in trouble.' Last time I checked, there was no trophy ceremony tonight, and it's a 7 game series. In order for us to lose in Boston, Boston will have to beat us 4 times in a row. Win just once, and we got HCA back.

    NOT worried. At all.

    something is up w/ odom. how come he hasnt been put in much? 6th man game 1 was sasha, not odom???

    idk why we dont try:
    PG LO
    SG KOBE
    SF ARTEST
    PF PAU
    C BYNUM

    that lineup could be problematic for boston.

    Foul trouble has been Odom's problem. And that lineup is awful. Odom would get killed by Rondo. The lane would also get congested really quick, because that's where Kobe, Odom and Gasol all like to operate.

    To add to my previous post, Odom had 5 fouls in under 15 minutes tonight and 5 fouls in just over 21 minutes in game one. It's hard to play when you can't stay on the court.

    And his foul troubles are almost working to our advantage since Bynum has been playing so well and gets more PT because of Odom's issues.

    Guessing you missed my post earlier, where I referenced how you and I were talking on day of Game 1, how we both don't like the touch fouls that are being called in the Finals....

    LO doesnt have to guard Rondo. Put Kobe on Rondo, Artest on Ray, and LO on PP. Pierce hasn't done shit to us, so why don't we try Odom on him?

    I think we go big on them, they got nothing on us.

    We would have had the title if we were up 2-0 right now.
