    Yeah he just doesnt get the calls.

    Its amazing that most fans complains how much he is protected by the league and those are the same fans who says he doesnt have a jumper or post game he lives only in paint yet he is taking less freethrows than any superstar in the league.Even less than jumpshooters.

    Last night i saw at least 4-5 fouls that just went unnoticed.But most of the time defenders just bounce off of him.

    I laughed when artest tried to stop him and lebron just run him over.Reggie miller was talking about how strong he is

    BTW lebron is averaging only 4.8fta per game for the last 7 games.Yes only 4.8.

    In that time span he had more points in the paint than anyone else.

    Something wrong with that

    Durant is a master at getting calls. I don't know how.

    I've seen him get calls even when no one touches him. Literally.. when there is 30cm of space between his elbow and the defenders arm and the whistle blows.

    This is why I can't like Durant. It just seems like the NBA is trying to manufacture a superstar.

    Lebron does not throw himself into a crowd of defenders for tough shots, he passes to teammates whenever he sees a chance.

    I'm sure KD will be able to live on knowing that some random kid on the internet "can't" like him.

    It's a lot easier to make calls on fouls on iso's and perimeter pumps and jumpers.

    That's how Harden gets to the line a lot. Durant and Deron Williams are great at this. Kevin Martin was pretty good at it too when he was in Houston and Sac-town.

    I think people still assume "low-post offense = more FT calls," but that's not the case anymore. It hasn't been since the early 2000's.

    I think it's a combination of poor offensive-minded big's, how the league caters to perimeter players and the poor officiating is the reason why low-post offense doesn't get you FT calls as much as iso's and perimeter plays.

    At least, it's consistent even with superstar players. LeBron's 2012 and this season FT attempts are the lowest since his rookie and sophomore seasons.

    Lebron gets hacked almost every time he drives and scores. I agree with what most people here have said, the contact doesn't effect him enough to be noticeable by the officials, that and they seem to have something against him this year. Westbrook and Lebron should get to the line more per game than any other players in the league. Harden is probably getting preferential treatment, but he does drive a lot and is very crafty at drawing contact.

When Durant gets the slightest touch it looks like he's hacked because he's so skinny whereas lebron appears to muscle through any contact. Ref have been robbing lebron this year on his FT attempts. It's the same thing I used to notice with Iverson and Marbury.
    Bron gets plenty of calls. A lot of his at the rim shots are on breaks.
