Agreed, hopefully he's honest and upfront. If he tries to get on there and claim that stars don't get calls or something like that, he'll lose any credibility he may have had.

After that flagrant call on Fisher, the NBA is dead to me for the time being. That was the Mecca of bad calls. They have gotten so used to guys flopping like collapsible lawn chairs that they've forgotten what it looks like when a guy gets run into and doesn't fall over.

That was such a ridiculous call. That foul wasn't any more flagrant than anytime someone prevents a layup. I don't understand why they couldn't review it, see it was a 270 pound man barreling into another strong guy and just call it a foul.

Cordarrelle Patterson had a TD called back for doing that a few weeks ago.
