Re: NBA is not fixed
I don't know if that was fixed. Pat Ewing was a great player but he was no better than top 10 at his peak for several years. Knicks went to one finals and lost. There are three series that always seemed suspect to me: Lakers vs Blazers in 2000, Lakers vs Kings in 2002 and Heat vs Mavs in 2006. In all three cases the refs seemed to go out of their way to favor the more popular team. It happens in all sports from time to time but it those series it was so blatant.
