Nice call on Kobe at the end of the game..The crooked refs and their bias for superstars is sickening and nauseating.. They call every ticky tacky call on the Wolves and miss the blatant hack on their beloved Kobe at the end of the game. Granted, missing all those free throws and easy layups and wide open shots doesn't help.. But, how ridiculous to ignore that obvious call .Should have been three free throw attempts by Rubio.. You play the game all that time and then suddenly at crunch time the refs swallow their whistles..?Another reason the NBA is horrible.

Lets just call it what it is, the basketball version of All-Star Wrestling. The ref saw the foul and ignored it. Horrible. The NBA; No Basketball Allowed, Nothing But Apathy. The ref should be fined for his mistake. He took away the Wolves chance to tie the game. Unacceptable.

The refs screw over the Wolves again, just like the Heat game. If you want them to win the game so badly, why play the game?

Pek provided us with another of his magic tricks by disappearing the middle two quarters. For a huge man, he gets beat over and over on the boards. How many dunks did they have tonight? He is a servicable player, but a game winning player he is not. Lay-up after layup he missed again tonight. Now the coach, why in h--- can't he take players out when they are getting handed their hind ends. The third quarter was their usual and again for the umpteenth time, no in game coahing. Most of us would have made adjustments. Coach all four quarters, not just the last ten minutes.

total blown call.not sure what rubio had to do there to get the call. now we all know if that was reversed, bryant would have been on the line in a heartbeat. one of these days rubio will get one over bryant..the lakers haven't been tolerable since the magic johnson days......

In four years, Ricky gets that call, but not tonight. It's still Kobe's world. I don't like it, but that's the NBA.

Another HORRIBLE call by the Ref at the end of the game WHO DOESN'T CALL FOULS ON KOBE BRYANT!!! What a terrible referee, who see's every tiny foul all game long but doesn't see something so blatant as that at the end of the game.

In four years Ricky will get foul calls like the one that was NOT called at the end of the game?? Why even have rules in the NBA? Is that the mentality of the NBA? If your a top player, then you get the foul calls?????? WHAT A CROOKED OPERATION THE NBA IS!

Yea, that was a bad non call. The ref's sure create outcomes of games. Also lets not forget Barrea getting teed up for saying he was hacked. Why was that a technical? One thing for sure, the Wolves have to get much better with there free throw shooting. It's killed them all year. Good game, but once again, the ref's made sure the Laker won. One win for the Lakers, one win for the Ref's, and another loss for the Wolves.

Please no complaints about Coach A tonight. His offense got this team wide open jump shots all night, we just missed too many. And how many layups did the Wolves miss tonight? We took 15 more shots than the Lakers and made 1 more shot than they did. Gotta make the open jumpers to win.
