Twitter Update: The NBA is Rigged

The NBA is Rigged

The NBA is rigged and everyone knows it. However, no entity seems to know it better than our friends on social media. So instead of telling you that the NBA is rigged myself, I’ll let Twitter tell you.

While I could go deep into the history of accusations of rigging against the league, in honor of this past weekend’s events, I’ll just focus on the 2017-18 season.

We Knew it in October 2017

November: Lonzo For MVP? No? Rigged.

Skip Ahead: Eastern Conference Finals Game 3

Eastern Conference Finals Game 4

Reminder: This was only Game 4, people.

Some were aware of it and didn’t even care. Side: He’s a Rockets fan.

Western Conference Finals Game 4

After some late Golden State miscues, they were given 0.5 seconds on the clock and had a shot to tie the game.

Even Kevin Durant knows things are rigged:

Eastern Conference Finals Game 5

Series tied at two.

Mid-game thoughts:

Some were still WOKE.

Western Conference Finals Game 5

It wasn’t a just a dream, it was a vision.

Eastern Conference Finals Game 6

After the first quarter.

Even the hockey guy sees it.

Western Conference Finals Game 6

Eastern Conference Finals Game 7

Another Hockey Guy…

Cleveland wins the Eastern Conference Finals. LeBron James clinches his 8th straight Finals appearance. 

Western Conference Finals Game 7

Golden State wins the Western Conference Finals and advances to their 4th straight NBA finals.

The Aftermath: May 29th

Shun the non-believers (and it was 27 threes missed in a row btw.)

Another non-believer…

Big Picture

With the impending Warriors-Cavs IV, I wonder: which way will the NBA tilt the scales this time around? Could they be setting up a potential tie-breaking 5th series in 2019? How will the NBA’s rigging of The Finals effect LeBron James’ off-season plans? Stay glued to these folks Twitter feeds to find out.
