Marty McNeals' column this morning says:
Over the years, several Kings from the 2001-02 season have voiced off-the-record thoughts about how they believed they'd been had in Game 6. Some said as much as soon as the game ended.
McNeal goes on to quote one unnamed player who may have a current connection to the NBA and is convinced that Game 6 was fixed.
However, if you have current ties to the NBA, you likely don't want your name linked to such comments.
That's why one player on that squad said: "What? I've been telling you that ever since it happened. That game was called with one thing in mind – the Lakers winning. But I can't say that publicly. …
"But they got us, didn't they?" said the player, who wouldn't go on the record for fear of repercussions from the NBA. "Just like I told you they did when it happened."
