Lebron is having one of the most dominant post-season of all-time, but the fact that he has only been whistled for 6 fouls is a travesty. In today's game against Atlanta there were mutlip[le occasions where he hacked a driver and should have gotten called. Also, there have been more than a few block calls that were clearly offensive fouls on Lebron.

If Lebron gets this kind of whistle, the league has essentially made the Cavs an unbeatable team.

6 fouls in almost 250 minutes. Thoughts?

Those 6 fouls were only called because LeBron could clearly be heard saying "Ahhh, I got you on the wrist/arm." If he wouldn't admit to it, the refs probably wouldn't call it.

Wow. This isn't hard to believe at all.

I saw some of the last blowout. He trained over Josh smith once, Smith slightly moving backwards, outside the restricted area, and Lebron going 100mph... and yes, blocking foul.

Another time he blocked Smith... and also fouled him from behind. No call, Smith complains and gets a tech.

Not surprising at all. I just hope that when we face them in the finals it's called a little more fairly.

Is there a link to the article?

I was afraid this would happen, not for concern for the lakers but more so for the nba and the integrity of the game. It is an obvious advantage for the Cavs. He is averaging over 14ft's a game and only fouling once per game while playing aggressive D. I saw 2 plays tonight were he hacked Bibby and Josh and they werent called, which led to Technical fouls to Josh and the Coach respectively. Hawks are getting the shaft, although I still think they would lose.

Haha. It's funny how you guys are surprised. How did he shoot more FTs than the Pistons? He's just that damn good. Best offensive and defensive player in the game.

I'm surprised you admit LeBron's getting away with something/is doing something wrong. I don't think I've ever heard anything negative from you towards him. I'm shocked, but impressed. Didn't think you had it in you.

It's from some poster on the espn message board. You think ESPN would DARE ever even write this? Nor anyone at all from the media in general much less? No effin' way. Lebron's untouchable. He can do no wrong. In fact, they probably had that thread and post by the guy on this deleted as soon as they saw it and banned him permanently and no, sadly, I'm not exaggerating.

^ Quite possibly I would guess as far as for the amount of minutes he's played and the type of player he is, always active, always everywhere.

He shot more FTs than the Pistons cuz the Pistons suck dick, and couldn't stop anyone on the Cavs, and also they sucked dick.

I'm surprised you admit LeBron's getting away with something/is doing something wrong. I don't think I've ever heard anything negative from you towards him. I'm shocked, but impressed. Didn't think you had it in you.

Cuz I don't have to say anything bad usually since everyone else is hating on him for no reason.

Oh yea

Lebron is 2nd last in fouls per 48min for ALL playoff players this year.

It could be because he only fouled 6 times. :slap:

Lebron is the greatest defender in the history of the NBA. You should all know that already.
