Lakers are about to get swept, and the Dallas market, while big, is nowhere NEAR the television draw that the Lakers are (hence why the Rangers-Giants World Series performed pretty poorly.)

I am a believer in the nba being influenced by outside forces, but cant argue with you, the way it is playing out, is not in the ratings favor. a Heat/Lakers or even Heat/Thunder final would probably be the biggest ratings possible, and its not looking good.

you can't rig a game when bench players are going 9/10 from 3

refs def. influence it but they can only do so much

It's never been rigged. People just need to understand that we have some bitch ass refs such as Joey Crawford and Tim Donaghy that don't take their job seriously.

lmao and replace them with what? The Grizzlies? Thunder? Mavericks? Of the three two are extremely small markets and would not do TV ratings any good, and as stated earlier, while Dallas is considered a "big market," they truly aren't all that (as evidenced by the poor 2010 World Series ratings.) In fact, the only true "big markets" are New York, LA, and maybe Chicago.

You guys are just reaching now, it's actually a little pathetic.

like I said. you cant rig everything all the time.. especially now its harder than ever with all the controversy and the tim donaghy thing exposing this sh!t. do you really believe there haven't been ANY games that were "rigged"? what about the 1985 draft? no tinfoil hat here but come on... and how could he rig this game? lakers getting outplayed mad on both ends. not everything is going to be "rigged"

Bulls would draw better ratings than the heat.

I agree with OP. The Lakers lost 4 in a row. It's not rigged. It's called the Lakers just aren't as good as the Mavs.

Lakers wouldn't have been the first team in sports to win 3 in a row. Does that mean every other league is rigged? lol

no I dont believe you are correct. the heat are the evil empire, the yankees, the team everyone wants to lose. I dont like the nba a lot, but I would tune into the finals if they were in it just to root against them. heat tickets were sold out even when they were on the road. think about what games this year had the highest ratings, it was heats 1st game, heat/lakers on xmas, heat cavs first game. They even had news teams covering their training camp.
