has complained too much for years ... stars who complain all game long are the ones who get less amount of calls
If this is true Chris Paul and Tim Duncan don't deserve another call until 2030.....
Seriously, Howard doesn't get called both ways. He's always used his elbows quite a bit on the offensive end. He dislodges quite a bit as well. He gets hammered on the defensive end as well.
In last nights game he was fouled pretty hard on a layup in the 3rd quarter.... everyone in the Gameday thread was upset that the foul wasn't called. When they replayed it you could clearly see that he literally shoved Splitter out of the way with two hands in the small of his back right in front of the same ref that didn't call the foul on the shot.....
The way he's going on shooting free throws getting the calls might not actually be a good thing. If he misses a shot because he's fouled and it's not called we have a chance to rebound it and score... when he's at the line the best we can hope for it seems is a score half the time.
I'm really surprised that the refs are not giving us calls to milk the series a bit longer for more $$ .... But on the other hand, this series showed how useless MDA is .
Game 1 was rated the mostly watch opening playoffs game... I really wonder what were the ratings for Game 2 and 3
