I guess LeBron gets less respect than Wade

Oh the aggravation of watching three refs swallow their whistle at the end of the Cavs/Pistons game last night. If only those refs had been with us in Games 3, 5, and 6 of the Finals last year. Chris Sheridan said it best:
"Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here, but where the heck is the indignation? By my count Hamilton slapped James on the arms three or four times when he was making his drive to the hoop, and that's not even counting the contact he took on the shot. If you wanted to be totally technical, there were probably five different instances of contact on which fouls could have been called.
"Compared to Dirk Nowitzki's touch foul against Dwyane Wade in Game 5 of the NBA Finals last year, this was an absolute mugging. "

I don't know if NBA officials are the worst in pro sports, but they certainly are the most inconsistent from one crew to the next. At least in the NFL all of the crews pretty mcuh call ticky-tack pass interference calls the same way. In the NBA you never know what you're going to get. If I was a player I would be getting fined constantly for making comments about the officials!
