Their length is overrated.  Their tenacity is overrated.  They, my friends are overrated.  I'm talking about the Los Angeles Lakers who were gift-wrapped a game tonight against the Bucks.  This game went into overtime when it shouldn't have.  Ilyasova of Milwaukee was called for 2 lane violations on free throws in the game- when does that ever happen?  The second one he was clearly dragged into the lane by Ron Artest.  2 do-overs for free throws for Pussy Gasol.

In overtime Bryant travels while charging on the second to last possession- and the refs meet and decide to give a blocking foul and-one call.  An utter disgrace of a call if I've ever seen one.  It was either a walk or a charge.

Bucks were up 6 with 1:24 to go and couldn't close this one out.

Keep gloating ESPN motherfuckers.  All you "experts" out there keep promoting this 6 man deep team as unbeatable.  It's gonna come back to bite you all.  And I'll be sure to reference this article in June.

    I've seen Kobe get some ridiculous calls over the years but that obvious charge/travel turned into an and-one was among the worst. LA shot 33 FT to Bucks 17. And the Bucks still blew opportunities to close this out.

    Yeah that was absolutely absurd, probably the worst call I've seen all year.

    Ilyasova being called for offensive 3 seconds the subsequent trip down after Bynum was called early in the 4th? I rewound that on my DVR and he was in there for NO more than 2. Usually you gotta be close to 4 for that to be called.

    I'm beyond heated right now, feel like not watching basketball ever again.
