the crimes

to begin with, a list of playoff series from the past decade that have either gone the wrong way or not been allowed to play out fairly, due to incompetence or cheating or both:

1999 New York/Indiana
2002 LA/Sacramento
2005 Dallas/Houston
2006 Miami/Dallas
2007 San Antonio/Phoenix
2008 LA/San Antonio
2008 Boston/LA

this is a world where Kobe and Shaq have only 2 rings each, where Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki have one, where Chris Webber has one, where Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash have one. also, as you can see, the series under question have increased in frequency over the last few seasons.

any I'm missing here? I'll go into depth about each of these as time goes on.
