Nothing has changed in the NBA
Yes an NBA ref was busted for fixing a game but nothing has changed. Watching the NBA playoffs reminds me of a reality show. If you win the first challenge of the episode than you get some sort of advantage for the next competition. Like on Biggest Loser, the winner of the first challenge gets to deduct 2 lbs. off their weigh in for the week. This concept is almost understood and accepted in the NBA. You have to be at least 15 points better than a team that night to win on the road. I only watch the NBA during the playoffs for the most part but I'm in disbelief at how bad the officiating is...for example, that foul on West when Garnett had that breakaway. He wasn't even near him but the ref knew it would get the crowd pumped so he called a foul.
