Yeah I am "that guy" ..that post was all stats for the reason being I wasn't making an argument, I was just pointin out the why Lebron is known for getting superstar calls and that it's silly to think Lebron never gets the calls Durant does.

What agenda would I have with this topic, literally no other fanbase besides Lebrons/Durants ever worries about opposing superstars free throw attempts outside when their team is playing them. Ill never be convinced one player is better than another based off free throw attempts, especially when I see maye a handful of that players games per season

Durant is also a lot skinnier and any contact on him makes refs give him the call while in lebron's case, refs think that he can take the contact.
I like durant a lot but he shouldn't average as many free throws as lebron. Teams like indiana and chicago have even accepted that they don't ever want to give lebron any easy basket as he is a great finisher around the rim. there is no logic in doing the same to durant as he is a really good free throw shooter unlike lebron. Teams try to get lebron out of rythm by fouling him but that doesn't work on durant. It is good for durant to be a good ft shooter but lebron should get more calls than KD.

i would like you to actually watch the games.
Came here to say more or less the same thing

Who cares how a player scores as long as it's consistently repeatable?

My God..we are witnessing one of the best scorers in NBA history in Durant at likely his peak right now.

The dude has essentially been at 29ppg at 61% TS for 5 seasons now. It's absurd how great that is. And he doesn't even take that many ft's compared to similar players throughout history. Regardless, you are talking about one less trip to the line per game anyway.

It's utterly meaningless when a guy is dropping 30 a night. Lets say he gets 1.5 bs points a night at the ft line...who the **** cares? If Durant was everaging 27 ppg over the last 5 years on the same shit it be nearly just as impressive.

Are you implying that Harden earns most of his free throws?

We might once see a 29 ppg season without him actually having any FG %

In what world is 75% below average?

75% is below average for a perimeter player.

KD shoots tech free throws and ft's at the end of the game.

Everyone saw when this bullshit fouls stopped being called last payoffs.

For his team benefit, Durant should not get used to this ref treatment, because in the playoffs, when he will face "for real" teams like spurs or grizzlies, this shit won't happen.

Against the Grizzlies in the playoffs, he averaged 9.8 FTA/game. Against the Spurs in the 2012 WCF, he averaged 9.3 FTA/game.

So yes, his FT drawing abilities transfer to the playoffs.
