They should have just said "Sacramento lost" and made the video a lot shorter than 8 minutes.

It's not sad just because sacrament lost Matt. It's because they lost because of cheating officials. This is the game that one of the officials came out last year and said that they were were told to call the game in a way that would let the Lakers win. And the worst part is, had the Kings won this game, they would have won the championship that year.

"Referees A, F and G were officiating a playoff series between Teams 5 and 6 in May of 2002. It was the sixth game of a seven-game series, and a Team 5 victory that night would have ended the series. However, Tim learned from Referee A that Referees A and F wanted to extend the series to seven games. Tim knew referees A and F to be 'company men,' always acting in the interest of the NBA, and that night, it was in the NBA's interest to add another game to the series. Referees A and F heavily favored Team 6. Personal fouls [resulting in obviously injured players] were ignored even when they occurred in full view of the referees. Conversely, the referees called made-up fouls on Team 5 in order to give additional free throw opportunities for Team 6. Their foul-calling also led to the ejection of two Team 5 players. The referees' favoring of Team 6 led to that team's victory that night, and Team 6 came back from behind to win that series." tim donaghy's attorney

Come on, Scott Pollard fouled out in 10 minutes? 10 minutes - 6 fouls??

I know, I was just giving you a hard time. I agree it sucks. Unfortunately, after watching a handful of playoff games this season, I'm not entirely convinced that the refs aren't still cheating. And I don't just say that because the Lakers won. I noticed a lot of questionable calls in pretty much every game I watched.
