|NBA Conspiracy Videos . . . Proposal?

You're going to get a ton of the conspiracy theories after Donaghy named more names.
This one's a pretty fun look at the 2006 Eastern Conference Finals.
1. Stu Jackson is terminated.
2. All NBA referees are either terminated or put into early retirement. Latter is given a severance package of some paltry sort.
3. David Stern retires.
4. NBA owners choose a new commissioner while they collectively run the league with an interim. Deadline to select new commissioner should be by the conclusion of the 2007-2008 regular season.
Maybe if these events take place, then people will begin to forgive the absolute bat-shit insane games that were due in large part to the third team, the Referees.
Does this taint championships won by the last handful of teams?
You can't fault the Spurs, Pistons, Heat, Lakers, or any other team for doing what they did because they're not the ones who did something wrong. As soon as Tim Duncan or LeBron James become named as defendants, then you will have a Black Sox Scandal. This may or may not be worse than the Black Sox, but to me, you don't cut a leg off if a toe becomes infected. In other words, you have David Stern's negligence, Stu Jackson's gross negligence, crooked body of the NBA referees, and that's about it. That's a lot of infection, but you can repair the damages because the players were not tainting the results.
So, sorry, Suns fans. In general, you're as sad and pathetic as Celtics fans. Both of you need a date together. Perhaps if you joined, you'd be institutionalized much quicker.
