The NBA finals have just ended. And the Mavericks were robbed.
I know, you expect a fan like me to say such things. But it’s absolutely true. Dennise and I counted no less than four times when Dwyane Wade drew “phantom fouls” from Maverick players. I’m talking four times when the Mav players didn’t even TOUCH him. It wasn’t even close. How the officials missed it all is beyond me. But if I can find the video camera, I’ll happily digitize and post the evidence later this week.
By our count that’s four points, at least, that the Heat shouldn’t have had on the board. So, the Mavs win by one.
What’s incredibly frustrating is that not one time did the play-by-play guys draw any attention to this….even when they showed the replays, and the replays clearly showed no contact.
Dwyane Wade is a great player. But he’s also an very good actor.
And we should be playing game seven on Thursday.
