    That game really sapped my enthusiasm for the NBA. Even when my Pistons won two years later, and have been competitive since… I loved those Kings teams.

    1) Tim Donaghy says:

    “Referees A, F and G were officiating a playoff series between Teams 5 and 6 in May of 2002. It was the sixth game of a seven-game series, and a Team 5 victory that night would have ended the series. However, Tim learned from Referee A that Referees A and F wanted to extend the series to seven games. Tim knew referees A and F to be ‘company men,’ always acting in the interest of the NBA, and that night, it was in the NBA’s interest to add another game to the series. Referees A and F heavily favored Team 6. Personal fouls [resulting in obviously injured players] were ignored even when they occurred in full view of the referees. Conversely, the referees called made-up fouls on Team 5 in order to give additional free throw opportunities for Team 6. Their foul-calling also led to the ejection of two Team 5 players. The referees’ favoring of Team 6 led to that team’s victory that night, and Team 6 came back from behind to win that series.”

    2) at the 2:50 minute point of the video, you can hear Nader’s voice in the background. You can see the back of ref Bob Delaney.

    3) the ref who called a foul on the Kings, while Kobe almost took off Bibby’s head, was Bob Delaney. Delaney is a former undercover cop (professional liar) who came to the NBA only a few years after David Stern became Commissioner.

    4) Sloppy Investigation?

    How Thorough Was the NBA’s Investigation?

    Reminds me of the 9/11 “investigation”.

    The Feds Didn’t Talk to Bernhardt, Either

    Bernhardt was the clean ref in the game, Delaney and Dick Bavetta are dirty. At least they have investigated Bavetta.

    The Feds Investigated Bavetta

    5) Coverup?

    YouTube Has Removed All Game 6 Clips
