Question by sally: How come of the four major team sports, the NBA is the only one that people accuse of being rigged?
I just find this odd. What is it about the NBA, that some people treat it like professional wrestling, and think the outcome is predetermined.
Answer by Rob K
It could have something to do with the fact that ex-ref Tim Donaghy was involved in betting on games, and giving favorable calls to the team’s he and his associates had money on. Other then that, there’s no factual evidence the NBA is fixed. People tend to like to make jokes on it, because of their disdain for David Stern, and his love for money. For example, it was common last year to say “The NBA wants Lakers/Celtics Finals.” For money, of course, they probably did. Does that mean it was all rigged? Definitely not. Now this year it’ll be “The NBA wants LeBron/Kobe.” If it happens, is it because it was rigged? Nope. It’s just a little banter people often make when their teams don’t get there or don’t produce. Someone or something always has to be a scapegoat.
