Yes. The nba always has the teams with the big name players and large market teams go farthest in the playoffs. They use small market franchises like the Charlotts Bobcats and Toronto Raptors as teams for the large market franchises like the lakers celtics and heat to get an easy victory. In the Nhl, every team has a chance. In the nba, the team from Canada never has a chance. In the mlb and nhl, the canadien teams have an equal shot at winning a championship.

I beg to differ. The most rigged pro sport is:

Sumo Wrestling!

Sumo wrestling is fixed all the time. There was just the 2011 scandal in which 26 Sumo Wrestlers wereexpelled for rigging games and accepting bribes.* Look at the video. Read the sources. Sumo wrestling is very, very rigged.
