As we speak, the Los Angeles Lakers are in the 9th spot out in the Western Conference playoff outlook with only eight games remaining. The Utah Jazz are in the 8th and final spot with a half-game lead over the Lakers with seven games left. The Mavericks are also looking at getting the final playoff spot out in the west, as they're in the 10th spot, behind the Lakers, in the playoff picture.According to a source, the video below explains how the NBA and their referees are helping the L.A. Lakers make the playoffs.The video highlights [for about 4 minutes] bad calls from referees during the Lakers most recent games against the Blazers, Mavericks, Nuggets, and Timberwolves. Now this wouldn't be a conspiracy but because of the fact that the refs are calling the WORST CALLS IN NBA HISTORY in favor of the L.A. Lakers.. it only makes one wonder if the NBA is really behind the recent success the Lakers have been having.Even if the Lakers [with the help of the NBA and their refs] do make it to the playoffs, they'll still probably get killed by the No. 1 seed San Antonio Spurs [No. 1 seed vs No. 8 seed].
