It’s Called Confirmation Bias, You Moron


One dunce passes along the wisdom of another:

TrueHoop reader Isaac: “Watching the games between these two teams is becoming increasingly frustrating. To be fair, I hate the Spurs, and I feel like something is wrong with the world if they win yet another series against the Suns. I don’t like the Suns for any reason other than they are enjoyable to watch and I feel that on some level they “deserve” to win. On to my frustration: the Spurs are huge babies. This applies to Popovich, Duncan, and seemingly every other player on the court. Duncan has his Duncan Face everytime he doesn’t get a call. Ginobli lays out every single play that he is even slightly touched as if he in a soccer match. Oberto definitely does a lot acting to get Shaq in foul trouble each time these teams play. The trend I’ve seen is really disturbing though. The players and Popovich complain to the refs in the opening quarter and it seems to make the refs subconsciously favor the Spurs on the calls from then on out. Don’t the league execs heavily monitor these games to ensure that the refs are calling the games right? At this point doesn’t someone have to crack down on all the bs that the Spurs players employ in order to get cheap fouls called in their favor. These games are all unequivocally amazing to watch and they get ruined because of ridiculous foul calls.”

Look, I love watching Nash and Barbosa play, but Phoenix fans are turning into the whiniest bunch of chumps in the league. OK, you got screwed on the suspensions last year. Now it’s time for you to stop blaming the refs for the fact that your team doesn’t ever fucking execute down the stretch. Your team, full-strength, got their asses handed to them in Game 6 last year, and they screwed up at least 5 or 6 chances to ice Game 1 this year. Stop pretending the Spurs’ complaints and flops are any different than EVERY OTHER TEAM IN THE LEAGUE or that the Suns deserve special treatment because they’re fun to watch.
