here is what I have seen from officials tonight in the Kobe vs Wade matchup:
Kobe and Wade both get knocked hard and it can be such an obvious foul, but the refs wont call it for either of them.
But when they both dribble and lose the handle or miss an easy shot, the refs give both kobe and wade calls that you would never think are fouls.
And Im not going to go ahead and say the refs give wade special treatment because wade does get hit a lot and not get the calls too.
He simply attacks more than Kobe. thats all there is to it.
If Kobe attacked more than wade then Kobe would get more ft's than wade.
