Absolutely bullshit. It's borderline a charge, so let the theatre of the moment remain and no call that bad boy. What a monster dunk!


After what seemed like a 5 minute review of the play, the refs probably got embarrassed halfway through their review that it didn’t take all of 5 second to come to the conclusion that Lonzo Ball’s 3 should count and instead called it a foul on Ball. Refs are idiots.

Yeah Ball doesnt kick out at all. I mean he flops to the ground to try get an And 1 but there is no contact from either player and you cant call a foul on Ball for falling over. Count the three and play on.

Feel for the refs though, they have to call the game a whole new way this season and there is some teething problems but it's way better this season overall IMO.

Also when do we start talking about the Suns current 14 game winning streak? Still miles away from the all time record set by the Lakers in 1971-72 but the 5th best streak of all time is 20. So they are 6 wins short of moving into the top 5 for longest winning streaks ever.

Probably not the best time to bring this up though as there next 5 games are Knicks, Nets, Warriors, Pistons, Warriors. So this winning streak probably ends at 15 after they beat the Knicks.

If they somehow get through the Nets and Warriors then look out..

Unfortunately for The Suns (players and fans), their on court success right now is probably being overshadowed by the toxic actions/behaviour of their owner, Robert Sarver.

It's a real shame cause they are an excellent team to coach, with a terrific coach

Meh doesnt seem to having any effect of the players of coaches. It's a separate issue.

It was a sh*t call. We lost that game by 5 points after we were 3 point behind with 2.1 second left and we committed a foul in the backcourt.

That one lousy foul call won’t make or break the Bulls making the playoffs but refs just need to do better than that. But as you said refs need to learn new stuff and it seems like that with every sport.

That Wolves v Sixers game that went to double O/T was the worst/biased officiated game I have seen in probably 10 years.

Absolutely disgusting and infuriating. If I was a Wolves fan, I would have a had total meltdown.

So happy they got the W though.

And the players earn...
Some of the states are changing that finally.

Might mean we get NCAA Football 2023 in the future. Was huge as a video game a decade ago.

And do you think his players are going to show up at 7AM tomorrow!?

Memphis won by 73 points. Biggest winning margin in history. Previous was Cleveland over Miami 148-80 in 1990.

High school and College sport is absolutely huge in America. Some of the crowds they get rival their professional competitions. Crazy.
Biggest American Football stadium is Michigan Wolverines stadium

This Kid is the real deal, just so explosive and best of all, is very good defensively as well.

I've seen enough. The New England Patriots are going back to the Superbowl.


Bill Belichick is the GOAT professional sports coach of any code. Makes Whiskey Face (Ferguson) look like a homeless bum's gaffer in comparison

What a magnificent team the Pats are. Magnificent
