|NBABrothers Thoughts & Theories||
For six games, being wrong never felt so good! The Knicks started the season with a six game winning streak challenging my expectations for the older squad. And, as I said, I’ve never been happier being wrong in my life. But, all good things apparently come to an end. The refs made sure of that in the seventh Knicks game of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies.
With four technical fouls called against the Knicks and a whole bunch of other questionable calls, I can’t be the only one wondering if these were the same refs used in the Knicks versus Heat playoff games last season. Let’s be honest. We all have seen how refs can interfere with the outcomes of games…just look at the Heat’s run for the finals last year. I am surprised the refs didn’t just wear Heat uniforms on the court. But that’s a different story for a different time.
Let’s focus on the game that happened two nights ago. When I was watching the game there were some really weird plays that happened. One play was that the Grizzlies had a technical free throw and the refs said that they had to make 1 of 2 free throws. Even the commentators could not understand what was going on. Another play that happened was that Carmelo was getting fouled hard and nothing was being called but when Carmelo tried to talk to the referee, a technical was called. These are just some of the plays that I did not understand.
Rasheed Wallace talked after the game to the media and said they tried hard against both teams and that's all the Knicks can do. I thought that he was right because the refs took the Knicks winning streak and placed it in the garbage. Anyway, I hope we do well the rest of the season and never see another game like this one again. I cannot wait to face the Grizzlies next time because it will be at Madison Square Garden on March 27th 2013. Anyway, please comment and tell me some of the things you saw during the Knicks fake loss.
