Warriors will never win another title

Post by Original Quill on Fri Mar 03, 2017 5:44 pm

Why?  Well, for one thing the League rigs games assisting their most-favored team.  They use officiating bias; google two words: Tim Donaghy.  The most-favored team is usually the Eastern team which has been most long-suffering.  Once Chicago, lately it's Cleveland.  

Ditching Andrew Bogut was the worst mistake ever.  He is a play-maker, excellent passer, rebounder and great marksman.

People say that he had to be ditched for Kevin Durant.  KD has never been anything but a media product.  I remember when he came out of the University of Texas...all of a sudden everyone is talking KD, KD, KD.  I'd never heard of him, and now I know why.

The Warriors were betting that bringing a high-end name in would entice the League to favor them in the sympathy stakes.  But rule no. two: the League simply doesn't equate sympathy with the west.  

The plan has backfired.  KD simply doesn't have the skills that Bogut has.  Bogut is a hard worker, and a brilliant floor schemer.  One day he will be a head coach in the NBA.

Warriors start in with the third year against the Cav's on Thursday. The league has the fix in, as usual. They rig the finals every year in favor of the eastern team.

Nothing more boring than a series where you already know the outcome.

Hey Quill, why not tell us a bit about this club and its history luv. So that others can participate.

It's a global site and Brits may not necessarily know about lesser known US clubs.

Oh .... and perhaps you could show pics of the rippling muscles of a few team members?  Cool Cool

The Warriors are a basketball club, originating in Philadelphia, but moving to the Bay Area in 1962.

For years they languished at the bottom of the National Basketball Association (NBA), winning only one championship in 1975.  Then, in 2014, they collected a pool of talent that some think is the greatest team ever.  They have battleships on the inside, under the basket, with the greatest shooters ever, sinking baskets from half-court.

But the NBA exists in New York, and participates in a possessory affection for the east coast and east coast teams.  Last year, in order to assure that the east coast team (Cleveland) won, after the Warriors had won 3 of the 4 games necessary to win the championship (ie, 4 of 7), the league announced that the three greatest Warrior stars (Curry, Green and Australian Andrew Bogut) could not play.  True, Bogut was out by injury, but the league determined that the injury, caused by the intentional act of JR Smith, was not a flagrant foul...effectively eliminating Bogut without consequences on the east coast team.

So, after winning 3 of the necessary 7 games, the league effectively rigged the remaining games, so that the east coast team won every time.  No question, you can determine the outcome of games if you do not permit the best players to play.

Rigging games is no stranger to the NBA.  To anyone who objects to this characterization, I have two words: Tim Donaghy.  Tim Donaghy is a former professional basketball referee who worked in the National Basketball Association for 13 seasons from 1994 to 2007. During his career in the NBA, Donaghy officiated in 772 regular season games and 20 playoff games. Donaghy resigned as an NBA referee after the FBI investigated him for betting on games (he eventually served a year in prison).  Why not, said Donaghy effectively, even the League rigs the games!  Donaghy spilled the truth onto the world, that the NBA itself fixed games according to box office popularity, routinely...in other words, officials favor the east coast teams.  Donaghy gave the world insights into the inner workings of the NBA, and confirmed that the League routinely fixed games. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Donaghy

We saw that in 2015, with the Warriors.  Despite the immense talent superiority of the west coast teams, we will continue to see the NBA rig the games toward the east.

Thank you Quill. An excellent summary.

The amount of intrigue, cliff hangers and unexpected change of luck - could make a good movie.

Now that you've put a human face on the team, I'll chip in a bit more whenever you mention them, if I'm around.

Clearly the better team, the Warriors are up in the series 2 - 0 as they head over to Cleveland.

But we've seen this before.  The Warriors were up 2 - 0 last year, over the same team, before the NBA decided to remove their three best players to rig the game.

How will the NBA rig this series?  Will they disqualify players, or just fake referee calls/no-calls?  If they don't cheat creatively, their ratings will fall.

Can you believe that fourth game, the last in Cleveland?  Refs handed out a dozen fouls against the Warriors in the 1st Quarter alone.  The game before, they get down to 1:31 on the clock before coddled James collects his first foul!!  .

They gave technical's twice to Green...their favorite beat-down boy...before they realized how bad they looked.  Then they invented the fiction that the first technical was on Kerr, lest Draymond gets kicked out...AGAIN.

These guys are so bad at rigging games, they can't even keep their shenanigans straight.  It's going to turn into a brawl, the League so wants the eastern team to win.  Too bad...NBA meddling in the outcome in order to please the money folks.  It's not even real sports competition anymore.  The only true sport left on major TV is Women's Collegiate Softball.
