Mavs Don’t Want Your Apology, NBA

The League admitted that its refs blew the call at the end of the Nuggets/Mavs game on Saturday night, but this only made the Dallas Mavericks angrier about the outcome: “About two hours after the game, the NBA released this statement from league vice president Joel Litvin: ‘At the end of the Dallas-Denver game this evening, the officials missed an intentional foul committed by Antoine Wright on Carmelo Anthony, just prior to Anthony’s three-point basket.’ How did Nowitzki and the Mavericks feel upon about hearing the admission? ‘If I was the league, I wouldn’t say that,’ Nowitzki said Sunday. ‘I don’t think it makes anybody feel better. We don’t get the last seven seconds back, to kind of play it over again. So more than anything, I think it made it worse.’”

    So, whats the L expected to do? They get ridiculed either way. At least they were upfront and honest about it. But, I agree with Dirk…

    Dirk’s right. Replay the damn game!

    They should replay the last 6 or so seconds. They made the Hawks/Heat do it……

  • Krishan

    I don’t think a replay’s possible. Oh and FREE DIRK NOWITZKI!

    I swear it was impossible to click on any of the links the last 20+ minutes. Crazy. It seems like no other comments have been left while I couldn’t post/read, so is it a global/external problem?
    For informations sake, I’m using Internet Explorer.

    bloody useless league office.

  • rikson

    Its gettin more and more ridiculous! If the league admits that there has been a mistake, replay the damn thing…

    Hey here’s a thought: instead of sending him to ‘Sota, let’s get Sportsguy and his vaunted “common sense” and smarts to take over the league office, specifically the one responsible for fines, refs etc. That’ll teach em.

    And the Celtics would win the next 25 NBA titles if that happened.

    Why would the League do that? Wright barely even fouled him, and the Mavs should have kept playing. the league just got scared

    tealish > If I can go ahead and support meloman13, I think it would have to have been a fairly soft touch foul to get called…on the other hand, say he missed the shot? I bet you we would be reading about George Karl calling the officiating a sham, where was the call…blah blah blah….I say he should of HACKED a brother to get a foul and withold a shot attempt. oh well…

    Onto the next game!
