Flops are an exaggeration of contact often accompanied by raising hands above the head to catch the refs attention. thats exactly what the 2nd and 3rd are.

Yeah, I'm not really sure what's going on, but it's clear that he's not getting the same kinds of calls that other stars are getting. The difference between Bron and other stars like Durant is visible just watching the game, refs are just so much more willing to blow the whistle for those guys.

Refs are just so willing to blow the whistle for Durant. He does this move where he throws both of his arms into the air when he feels any contact while driving in and just throws the ball. Hardly even looks like a shot attempt. Meanwhile Lebron is abusing the paint at will, getting hammered by the bigs and getting 6 fts att. per game

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's type of low post game (or lack thereof) doesn't lead to many fouls anyway. When he does post up he's waiting for the double and looking to pass 80% of the time. If he's not passing he's doing a fadeaway jumper where he's leaping 5 foot from the defender. He barely has any moves on the low block that would lead to getting a defender off balance and result in a foul call.

Toninights Thunder/Heat game was a good example of the high volume of FT's Durant is gifted with. Dude was on lockdown until he stated getting a FT like everytime he touched the ball
