56 more shot attempts but how many free throws more or less?

KD also shot this many less shots while playing the whole season while Melo missed around 15 games or so.

Real question is how many more phantom free throw calls did KD get? Cause I know Melo don't get the same treatment even though Melo plays more physical.

and Durant shot 750 free throws to Melo's 512. nearly a 250 ft difference... that can certainly account for the extra shots on Melo's part, since when you get FTs, they wipe away the shot attempt.

Well KD is a better scorer, rebounder, passer, shooter and overall a much better player than Melo. But it's good to remind idiots of simple facts every now and then.

The whole Durant takes less shots than other superstars thing has already been debunked by the fact that a whistle is being blown every time he attempts a shot.

If Melo got FT's for every breath someone takes while he shoots the ball, he'd average 31 easily, and on higher TS% since he loses FGA but gains FTM.

- He gets hacked HARD at least once a game when he goes up in the paint, no call

- He gets hacked whenever he follows his own rebound and makes the shot

That's one and-1 and two FT's per game easily. So he'd really be sitting at a nice, legit and very efficient 30+ ppg season

Gotta give credits to the refs man.
He took 56 shots less than Melo's but he got 200 more free throws than Melo.

You are crazy if you think Melo with equal FT's as Durant would somehow have a better TS% than Durant.

Durant attempted 238 more free throws (22.3% more per game) and still trailed Melo in scoring.
