As someone who loves the NBA, I hate that Bennett Salvatore played such a prominent role game five pictured above. I can't shake the feeling that it hurt the league's credibility just a little--not to mention outraging plenty of people (who would, it appears, be wise to appoint Avery Johnson as their avenger-in-chief).
