We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Milwaukee.
I’m so tired of the NBA! Last night’s game was officiated like always! One of the leagues GEM teams comes in and gets all the calls in the 4th. Paul Pierce can go to the line w/out being touched but Illyasova got fouled in the end and they made sure to put the nail in the coffin on that bull$#it free throw violation! This is how it’s always been! At least since the late 80’s. This league caters to Super stars and large markets and it’s on display every night we play a good team!
Professional NBA basketball is a crooked sham that I can’t seem to give up on. The Bucks shot poorly but could have won if they also didn’t have to also fight the automatic edge given to a “league sanctioned moneymaker”. I’m still nauseous thinking about the evil it must take….
“Ersan Ilyasova lost the ball near the basket”
Should read “Ersan Ilyasova was fouled near the basket, which was not called. Should also read that Monta Ellis was called for a lane violation he did not commit.
I pulled those remarks from the comments section of the Journal Sentinel’s story on last night’s game. Good to know Celtics fans aren’t the only ones who love to tear apart NBA officials.
They are right about the star treatment. It’s more prevalent in the NBA than any other professional sport. Maybe now that Czar Stern is retiring, the league will finally admit there’s a big problem with officiating.
As for non foul call on Jeff Green’s strip of Ilyasova, I didn’t see a definitive replay indicating it was a foul. To my eyes, Ilysasova turned into Green and the ball popped loose.
