And You Thought The WWE Was Fake

Hmm, what do you know, the Lakers and Celtics are playing each other in the NBA finals.

Anyone want to bet the series doesn't go 7 games?

I'm not really sure what your point is here. The best two teams in the NBA are playing for the NBA Championship. And the problem is...? (Oh right, the problem is it's baseball season so we have more important things to worry about :)

My point is that the NBA always "just happens" to get exactly what the NBA wants. It proves true almost 100% of the time. Way too suspicious. I could (and have in the past) develop the theory a little more for you if you're interested. But that'd be a much longer post.

Post it. I agree completely. Accept that it goes further than the NBA. It is just more obvious in the NBA. Notice how the Patriots' games were getting really boring halfway through the season and then the games against crap teams got real close until the Patriots beat them at the end? I'm debating now which sports are rigged and to what degree. I like how the Patriots have one of the easiest schedules this year too and the Dolphins have one of the hardest. Seems like someone might go 16-0 again.

The powers that be in the NBA are just a tad more obvious than the rest, I must agree. The KG and Gasol trades are suspicious enough, too, but I don't think this series goes 7. 5 or 6, with the Lakers running away.

As to the NFL, I think if the commish and his friends really had the power, we would have seen 19-0, because, what better team to do it? Surely, we'll never witness the Cowboys or Raiders reach those heights while their owners still breathe. I think what ultimately spelled doom for the Pat's was the Spygate scandal - no one wanted the 19-0 record to have an asterisk. So we try again...

Touche, I agree, the asterisk mark is not so good. Want to take bets that next year or the next we see 19-0? I think we do.

Actually, the 'Fins and Pats are in the AFC East, so both teams will play all the AFC West and NFC West teams. That plus division games account for 14 games. For the other two teams, NE gets PIT and @Ind (combined record: 23-9), and Miami gets HOU and @Bal (combined record: 13-19).

What makes NE's schedule easier? They get two games against 1-15 Miami. The 'Fins, alas, have to have two games against 16-0 New England...
