The NBA = Pro Wrestling

After watching the third straight unevenly officiated game with the Detroit Pistons vs Cleveland Cavaliers, it is clear to me that the NBA is more like the WWE (world wrestling entertainment) than ever before. It is really unfortunate that the NBA officials are allowed so much control over any given game or series. Some rules are enforced, others are not. Some fouls are called, others are not. Be consistent! It reminds me why I never really have been a very strong fan of pro basketball over every other major college and pro sport.

I'm not saying the Pistons would have won if it was called equally as they weren't exactly playing well or coached well, but they still played well enough to compete and the officials did not even give them that chance to win it.
