    Default Durant and Lebron FT attempts

    How does someone like Lebron who lives around the rim get less FT attempts than someone is mainly a jump shooter? I've come to the conclusion that lebron strength and body type is working against him while Durants is working in favor of him. 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.

    This. Not Durants fault. He's not flopping. He's truly just pretty weak. Being so tall and skinny, when he gets hit his body is affected. Defenders just bounce off Lebron

    Lebron dont get called for nothing unless its an obvious flagrant. Its pretty ridiculous tbh. Seeing the way Durant gets to the line is just

    Refs take Westbrook's uncalled fouls and give those FTs to Durant.

    Lebron/Westbrook get no respect in the paint because they are too big or fast for the contact to be noticed or felt. Officials expect them to finish through it.

    I don't know about Durant, but i have seen Lebron get hit this year on drives with not as many calls getting made as usual for a super-star. There were even a few last night on drives against Gasol and Howard.

    When LeBron gets hit, it barely affects him. When someone pokes Durant with their pinky it throws him off because he is so skinny. Which is why he goes to the line more. BS. LeBron probably gets hit more than him but it barely affects him so they don't call it.

    Posted this in another thread. Nothing against Durant, it is what it is

    If Durant got fouled like Lebron does there would be 5 flagrants a game

    I think the Ninja Turtle council will not take that the right way if not most likely claim racism

    The lack of "respect" for LeBron only became an issue this season. He just doesn't get the calls anymore, for whatever reason.

    Lebron's strength seems to work against him these days.
