Obviously he isn’t attacking the rim at the same rate, but just from the eye test, it looks like he is not getting either close calls or even obvious calls this year. What gives?

I can’t stand Westbrook...Idiot always seems to have an attitude....His face says punch me all over it. Then we have Harden who’s made flopping an art form....I also hate that he gets away with holding guys arms while headed to the basket freaking tricky bastard.

Because he's a horrible actor...Lebron doesn't look like he got shot by a 50Cal everytime he gets hit like Harden etc..

When he became a Lakers, his flopping way was forbidden.
No flops, no calls. Sorry... just like Kobe used to get (no calls).

Yeah, Harden's FTs alone were already over the limit of free throws allowed per day.

That's what I cant understand about NBA officiating, Isn't holding defenders arm an offensive foul? I can't believe that FlopDen gets away with it constantly and worst they are calling it a defensive foul. It's should be an offensive foul or no call.

If that's a foul, the forearm hand-checking/shoving on the offensive player's hip that happens every game (on almost every drive to the basket) should be a foul too.

Harden is a con artist who knows how to fool the refs with good acting. Lebron plays fair. He doesn't flop. That's why he doesn't get the calls.

It is only more noticeable because he is a Laker. It is called fan bias.

He was just as physical and hard to officiate when he was an opponent.
And many of you were likely lumping him into the Harden/ Paul flopping frustrations a couple of years ago.

I agree he should get more calls. And Harden should get less. But both could just as easily be getting a lot more offensive calls if viewed differently. Both initiate contact and get calls. Both have the refs swallow their whistles at times.

No he wouldn’t. Kobe didn’t play to draw the whistle like Harden does.
