Sasha Vujacic (a.k.a. The Machine) thinks it's okay to complain about fouls.
Here's what he said:
"They (Boston) foul a lot. They get away with a lot of fouls," The Machine said in monotone. "When we go back to Boston, we know that they are going do a lot of moving picks like they do, and they're probably going to get away with it. But we got to stay smart, stay focused, and play with poise."
Now, I'm not going to say I disagree with Sasha, but he needs to keep that kind of stuff to himself. If the refs are calling the game a certain way, you have to adjust to the way it's being called. They have really been letting both teams play, it should be the same if not worse in game six.
I'm not telling you to forget your emotions. That's the one part of your game that's similar to KG. It can really help you, or hurt you. Just don't cry and play the game. I think the entire Laker team needs to act on the last part of that advice. They were really begging for calls when Boston was making a comeback. That won't work on the road. Oh the game is rigged, whatever you think, if someone commits a playoff foul, then it likely will be called.
