  • When the Kings lost Game 6 of the 2002 Western Conference Finals to the Lakers, Sacramento fans and a lot of the national media immediately thought something was up. But the conspiracy took on a whole new tone when Tim Donaghy, a disgraced former NBA referee, claimed the officials hadn't just been calling things one-sided on accident.

    There's another video that shows Shaq step over the free throw line all night which helped his percentage.

    Even though the Kings were robbed, they also shot themselves in the foot in game 7. If you lose in OT and Shaq shoots better from the line than you do collectively, that's on you. And Peja airballed that three to win the game; a shooter that good who misses that badly usually only does that because he can't handle the pressure. Of course, the whole team was bricking threes (2/20), so I shouldn't just put it on Peja.

    It’s like all the evidence is that it’s rigged. But the character of the whistleblower? Look at the facts and it is obvious it was rigged. David Stern is hardly Mr Character either. Kings were robbed

    At this point, it's more a conspiracy theory to believe that the Lakers won that series in honest fashion.

    What's more? I really don't give a damn about either of those teams. But I have two eyeballs, a brain and am a homosapien. He'll, even a blind, brain dead, monkey could see that the fix was in.
