    Listen there were bad calls for both sides but of course the bandwagoners gotta make any excuse they can. I keep hearing "yea but injuries tho" like dude it's unfortunate but it's a part of sports, people fucking get hurt and they act like the warriors were the only team/players ever in sports history to get injured lol. I lost get over it. But they can't cause they know they ain't winning next year either lol

    Nick got a bias. I watched the series and it was clear gsw had the advantage in officiating but calls were missed against both

      If you look at the 2nd play, you'll notice Kawhi was getting his arm wrapped up by Iggy, but we'll ignore that. lol

            It is easy to judge base on what we watch and what we saw in replay but in actual game their are moments that you can't really tell if it's a good call or you better let go of a play.

              @3:00 Leonard traveled, but only because there was a contact that wasn't called. Look carefully as Iggy held on to Leonard's left arm.

                I'd like to challenge Nick to analyze the last play on GAME 6, where Iggy fouled Leonard in the inbound and the CLOCK DID NOT MOVE from 0.9 sec. How is it possible that the clock did even move even a fraction of a second without a technical foul?

                @5:00 Draymond did not foul and the no call for an offensive foul is Definitely Correct!!! Funny how Nick tries to even up the scores on a correct call. I'm beginning to doubt Nick's credibility as a coach now.

              LMAO,...no! The OWNERS decide the outcome, the Ref's just do their bidding, you fucking morons. If you don't know pro sports are TOTALLY rigged by this point, you're too stupid to ever see it. This is why the self declared 'elite' call you stupid. You are.

                                      @Team3AM I remember a time when the home team used to win nearly every playoff game because the refs were influenced by the fans. We also used to have a ref that was actively betting on games he officiated. Do you remember the calls Reggie Miller used to get by sticking his legs out while shooting or the number of charges Shaq got away with? Even LeBron doesn't get all the calls he used to. Yeah, the officiating is remarkably better than it was 20 years ago.

                                      The refs won two games for the Warriors, should have been a sweep. GSW is the weakest, most stacked deck team in history and now is RIP'd till next decade. Karma!

                                        2:58 Nunn: "[Leonard] actually put that foot down illegally." Leonard barely put the foot down because he barely lifted it in the air. But dragging it was anyway a clearly illegal third step. Nunn also says, "No need for it", but that's wrong. Leonard needed to stop quickly to let the defender's momentum create separation, then take a jump shot. Compressing into his left foot to stop then jumping off of it without ever putting his right down, while it goes from being extended behind him to... what, pulled up like a stork?... may have been doable, but would have been awkward as hell.

                                          Nunn says "[Leonard] actually gathers the ball on his right foot", but this is wrong. If you stop the action @1:27 just after Leonard crosses midcourt his left foot is down, his right foot is mid-stride AND HIS HAND IS UNDER THE BALL. As soon as that last happens his dribble has ended. Again, the rule book says NOTHING about a "gather". It says you have a two-count after your "dribble has ended". Leonard steps right(1) and left(2) and is absolutely correct, contra Nunn, that if he'd put his right foot down that would be (3), and a travel. But he didn't, so it wasn't.

                                                        Nunn is wrong on the 1st kawhi almost travel...he did not travel but he must either jump off the left leg (like a right side layup) or pass the ball before the right leg comes down. he passed before the right leg came down. but in this case the right leg was his pivot, therefore he may not lift it and put it down without getting rid of the ball.

                                                            Clearly the comments are all biast gs fans. I watched all the games in the series and clearly the refs were biast towards gs the whole series. Curry fouls lots with his bad D, reaches lots and never gets called. I even saw a play were he slaps gasol on the arms and they called a jump ball. Good thing curry is Christian, even he knew he was guilty and didn't even jump during the jump ball. Not to mention draymond, he shoud foul out every game. Which brings me to boogie who fouls lots too, and minimal calls on him too. Last look at game 6, the refs were trying hard to give gs the game and another chance to win. When have you ever saw an in bound with 0.9 left. Kawhi catches the ball puts in the basket and time runs out, but gs fouls. No time is taken off and the basket doesn't count for continuation.

                                                                That dude was holding Curry on every play and ref call this foul but when it comes to curry refs let mugging go on. There is no hand checking but players can hold curry when he dont have the ball.? that puts curry at a big diadvantage when he is smalll and this has been happening for years. Right when they rounded cousins the dude had his arm and hand wraped holding Curry. And if they call it always or they should not call it is stupid because those crap refs never give curry a call . If harden or bron was moving without the ball and someone touches them its an instant foul. You see fould being called of the ball all the time and lots of them are people grabing or touching some one and keeping them from getting open. How can a player get free if the defeder is alowed to body up on a player and use his hands to keep him from going where he wants. Only beverly on KD and Always on stef are defenders allowed to do this. But they see that little nudge with cousins ass. That is why curry is blamed for choking nobody could get free if a defender is alowed to body up on someone and then use his arms to keep from going where he wants. D is D and you cant just keep putting your body on some one then hook them with your arms. But curry is the only player so dangerous that he gets a shadow and the refs alow the playes to get in his space so much its basiclly holdind curry from froward progress like a different trying to get to a spot without the ball and the diffender cutting into his lane and putting his hands around him to stop his progress an instant foul. Since when is it in BB that someone can just put his hands and body on someone and keed him from going where he wants. A deffender has to antisipatte the move then get his boby in the lane to stop a person not body up mand hook there arms. And the deffender slidins into the player not getting intro the lane before the player does and then bodying up and hooking his hands and arm is a foul that gets called all the time. You think is GS was allowed to do that to swaggy p or Kawai they could get free ind get a clear shot to the hoop everytime GS tried bodying up then hooking there arm it was an instant foul. Well with stef they let the defender put his body and arms on stef so mhe cant even move then use there arms and hands basickl holding stef from moving any where near the ball. or the basket. Nobody should be allowed to hold a player as soon as the play starts and keep holding them timm the play is over. If you are not the person trhis garbage is happening to you cant fell it but there is alot more going on the n just some big in the paint with his bach to the rim and a the d guy useing his boby and streanth to keep the o guy from getting to the rim This is a deffender boding up on stef from the front and wraping mhis arms around stef so all stef cao do is really to get open is lunge out backwards while the deffender is holding stef pretty much so he really cant even lunge out this guy is holding stef the whole time fro trhe start of the plat till the end of the play. Only GS gets fouls called on them while the whole play the dude that bgets the foul has been fouling the whole time.Watch the way the shadow defends stef he gives stef no room to move and as soon as he feels stef making a move to get away he hooks stef and moves his body to keep stef from going where ge wants,. If you have your hands and body on some one then you can feel is intentions because he aint just keeping stef from backing into the basket. He is using his body and hands keeping stef from moving and then if stef makes a move when you are pressing and basiclly holding stef and stef makes a move the deffender can feel it and then hook his arms harder then move his body where stef is trying to go. And these crap refs allow it and stef complains tech foul he is the only player besides KD who beverly was doing it to and finally people seen it and refs starded calling the Fouls. well this is the way stef has been being played by shawdows for 5 years. Any other player even if a deffender cuts into his lane boby up and hook his arms around the player it is a foul away from the ball. But the refs let players basiclly grab and hold stef using his body and arms and hand and they call this legal. This is going on the time te play starts and till it ends and any attemt to get stef free from the foul being commited from the time the play starts is a foul against GS. This is complete garbage Tell me how this stuff is allowed along with people like harden flopping and getting calls How in the hell can in the biggest stage in BB and a tea m is allowed to hold the opposing teams best player from the time the play starts till it ends and fers who are suppose to to be the best watch a foul being commited play after play and ony call a foul when stef trys to get free by pushing the fool away from him which is an instant foul on stef or cousins moving his but to get stef free from a guy holding stef this is not a guy holding stef by the arms with his hands which is a foul and would get called this is a gut holding stef using his whole body both arms and both hands every play till the play ends. Without there totally illegal tactics and the refs looking the other way stef would of won in 2016 and already had a three peat. That is the only reason stef has not been successful in finals not because he chokes its because refs are not doing there job. (Its just like some on e holding kawai bron harden who players even touch gets bthe foul ) The whole play the entire play and not hands grabing arms its Wraping there whole body on stef and any movement stef makes the defander with his body and arms holding stef can feel what stef is trying to do and put pressure with there arms and hands and moving there body in the way. I spelled out how dirty is ifor the refs to let this stuff go on over and over so someone might under stand Stef is kept from going where he wants and the guy using his body and nhands to feel where stef want to go and keeping him from going where he wants. And im sure people who never played any form of contact sport will act like this is nothing but this is in stefs case bigger and sgtronger players allowed to hold stef every play using there whole body from the time the play starts till it ends. Now coach you tell me this is fair or that if this was happening to you best player you would not see it and say something or bron or harden would not say something and get some results. Well all stef gets is a ytech foul. If not for this kind of crap going on stef would be the goat hands down. You know how physically and mentally demanding it is having someone holding grabing and leaning there body on you the whole game and if stef tries to tell the refs what is ngoing on and then if stef tries to get his point across BAM TECH FOUL BY SOME OF THE MOST INCOMPITANT STUBRON UNREASONABLE IDIOTS EVER PUT IN A VERY IMPORTANT JOB. THIS NIS GARBAGE BUT IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THE MAX KELLERMAN SKIP BAYLISS AND THE REST OF THE LOUSY NMEDIA NOT THE GOOD MEDIA THE CRAP MEDIA IF NYOU ARE NOT ON THERE A LIST THIS IS THE CRAP THAT HAPPENS.9BECAUSE THESE MAXS OF THE WORLD WELL MAYBE NOT MAX HE IS CLUELESS) THE GENERAL BRON COALITION KNOW WHAT HAPPENING TO STEF IS NNOT RIGHT AND IF IT WERE HAPPENING TO BRON IT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST HEADLINES IN SPORTS DAY AFTER DAY LEBRON JAMES IS SO GREAT THAT THE REFS ARE ALLOWING PLAYERS TO BEAR HUG HIM AND NOT EVEN MOVE FROM THE TIME THE GAME STARTS TILL IT ENDS AND HE IS SO GREAT HE STILL GOES OFF FOR 36YT HE IS TRULLY THE GOAT/. AND THIS IS NOT FAIR AND SOMETHING NEED TO MBE DONE ABOUT IT.AND THEY WOULD SHOW PLAY AFTER PLAY SHOWING WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING AND IT WOULD DE PASTED ALL OVER YOU YUBE AND EVERY SHOW WOULD BE SHOWING WHAT REALLY IS HAPPENING. BUT THIS IS STEF CURRY AFTER ALL WHO IS REALLY THE BEST TO PLAY THE GAME SO THE STORY IS TOLD LIKE THIS BY UNREASONABLE MEDIA STEF CURRY HAD HIS CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF WHEN EVERY GREAT TO GOOD PLAYER WENT OUT WITH INJURY AND HE JUST COULD NOT GET IT DONE IN THE 4TH QUARETR HE IS NOT IN THE GOAT CONVERSATION. BUT THEY LEAVE OUT HOW THERE IS NOBOBY ON THE COURT FOR GS THAT CAN EVEN CREATE THERE OWN SHOTS AND BEEN ON THE BENCH ALL YEAR AND THE OTHER TEAM HAS A GUY WHO USES HIS WHOLE BODY HOLDING STEF FROM THE START OF THE GAME TILL THE END AND THEY ACT LIKE STEF IS A CHOKER AND ALL THEY ARE DOING IS LYING TO FANS AND TO THERE SELVES TO MAKE STEFS LEGACY AS A CHOKER AND BRONS AS THE KING. IN TRUTH BRON IS NOT CLOSE TO THE MAN STEF IS (ALL BRO DOES IS PUSHES BLAME AND WANTS ALL THE CREDIT FOR ANY GOOD FOR HIMSELF) STEF NEVER PUSHES BLAME NEVER COMES OUT WEARING A CAST FOR EXCUSES IS A SELFLESS TEAM PLAYER WHO MIS ALWAY FIRST TO GIVE CREDIT TO TEAMMATES AND NEVER TOOT HIS OWN HORN. AND STEF HAD NO GREAT ATHLETIC ABBILITUY HE DONE IT ALL WITH HARD WORK AND THIS IS HOW HE GETS TREATED.

There were bad calls on both sides but that's not to say that one team wasn't more disadvantaged than the other. There were about eleven blatant wrong or missed calls (discounting questionable one's) and Toronto received about 70% of those.

                                                                            Another thing also worth noting is that the Warriors are 18 and 1 (blowout) when Ed Malloy officiates and the Warriors only two victories came when he refereed the game. I found it puzzling on how quick he blew the whistle on some occasions in the Warriors favor while reluctant or outright ignored similiar fouls on the other side.
