Wild Fan Theory Claims Officials Rigging Lakers Games
What happened to professional basketball? A video that’s blowing up on Reddit and Bleacher Report today seems to point to one source as the root of the problem: refs rigging games.
We stopped following basketball ages ago, back when some tall guy, who played for at least four teams, put out a rap album, worked as an reserve policeman, starred in a video game where he knew karate, played a genie in a kids movie, and now has a comedy show on truTV, was the biggest thing in hoops.
We know that Kobe Bryant was accused of rape and exonerated and that LeBron James is very good at basketball, and the entire city of Cleveland, where he grew up and learned to play the game, now hates him with a white-hot passion. Meanwhile, the NBA has turned into a sideshow, one step above pro wrestling, only with the rigging of the game much more obvious to the naked eye.
Bleacher Report has some damning video of the calls that have mysteriously been going the way of the Los Angeles Lakers as they limp their way towards the post-season.
Meanwhile, in more serious news, Michael Jordan sells underwear now.
