    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.

    Updates:

    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.

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