Melo has 43 on 3 free throw attempts.
 
Has Durant ever done that? Serious question.

Inb4 Joyner with his TS% and the rest of Durant's fraud stats.

Melo doesn't have Westbrook therefore he can shoot all he wants.

I only watched the last 7 minutes of the game so I couldn't tell you if he was being aggressive enough in order to draw fouls. Are the Knicks like 8-0 when Melo scores 40? geez.

After watching the Laker/Thunder game, I don't know what to say.

Melo would get more freethrows if he shook like he was having a seizure everytime another player grazed him, a la Durant.

When you're left wide open time and time again it helps.

Considering Melo hit like 10 threes obviously he wasn't l iving in the paint but he's a significantly more physical player than KD who draws most of his fouls on jumpers anyways. 3 free throws would probably be KD's career low. Wind blows, KD falls down. Then he grabs a player around the neck and gets away with it after being humiliated. Gotta love the guy.

I would trade Melo for Durant, but yeah Melo gets absolutely no respect. Some guy sticks his fingers on his eyes twice in 5 seconds and Melo gets a technical. :lol

I've seen Vince Carter zone out even better in a playoff series.

James Hardens fouls are more inexplicable.He ran into every Nets player last night and heaved his arms in the air like he just took a bullet to the chest.He has 500 free throw attempts this season. It's egregious. I hate phonies like him.

I keep saying this...Melo gets the least respect out of any superstar in the league. He gets hacked like no other, and he's never given the same leeway that others like KD and LBJ have. Dude slams the ball out of frustration/pain because he got eye-gouged and refs T him up... :facepalm
