Doc Rivers is probably going to get fined by the NBA for saying the Clippers were "robbed" last night in Oklahoma City. That is the kind of comment that crosses the line, no matter how true it might have been.
But what about referee Tony Brothers?
Is he going to be publicly chastised by the league office for saying replays of the ball that clearly went off of Reggie Jackson's hand were "inconclusive?"
And another thing ... if everyone in the arena saw a replay on the Jumbotron that showed the ball going off of Jackson, did the referees see that same replay? Or did they only have access to the replay angles available to the Turner Sports crew that broadcast the game?
There are a million questions to be answered today about the thrilling final seconds of the Thunder-Clippers Game 5, and I fully expect the NBA office to release a "we screwed up" statement from Rod Thorn's office.
But the most important question in my mind is this: How can the NBA prevent this kind of debacle from happening again?

The world has been set afire ever since the footage leaked by TMZ was seen by the entire planet as Beyonce's sister Solange went on the attack to attempt to harm Jay-Z in what was obviously a violent response to something that pissed Solange off.
The speculation on this incident will most likely burn through the very fibers of the internet for a long time to come.
The fact that there was absolutely no audio with the video footage will fuel the fires of what caused Solange to act out like she did and even amplify what was already a huge situation.
Will we ever know what it wasthat caused sister Solange to assault Jay Z?
Did she catch him flirting or even cheating on her beloved sister Beyonce, who, while witnessing the entire scuffle up close and personal, seemed detached as though nothing out of the ordinary was going on?
Was this something brewing between Jay and Solange over a long period of time and just happened to come out now?
Is there a power struggle with the career of Solange in the shadow of her more famous sister?
Something went down and while we may never know what it was, the world will now find themselves searching hard through everything they say or do with a fine tooth comb until they are satisfied.
The media surely will build you up high before knocking you down to savor every bit of ones fall in front of the public eye.
Does this incident signal the downward spiral of the marriage of Jay-Z and Beyonce?
As usual, the great Madamwhipass & LanceScurv go in on this mysterious incident with just as many questions as anyone.
Enjoy the intense and very interesting exchange and please leave your comments in the box below.
14 year-old Ben Robinson played rugby for his school. After being treated three times for blows to the head and sent back onto the field following each, he collapsed and later died in hospital.
Ben is one of the rare documented cases in the world of young athletes dying from Second Impact Syndrome (SIS).
Death from sport-related head trauma, although devastating in every case, occurs less than death by other causes. Since Ben died, his dad has become an advocate for change.
Peter Robinson makes some valid points:
There should be a chain of health-and-safety procedures in place.
Responsibility for safety should be shared by players, coaches, referees and parents.
There are ways to reduce the risks and save lives.
Ben's concussion should have been spotted and his son may have survived. Peter shares with us how his family and life has been altered.
