Okay, maybe someone can explain the deal on this.
On the one hand D'antoni said he understands Dwight's frustration because he was getting beat up pretty hard.
Then I saw Charles Barkley talking about how Dwight needs to learn how to post up.
Now maybe things would be different if Dwight could make free throws, but what exactly are the rules on fouling?
The way they wrestle when Dwight doesn't even have the ball seems nuts to me. Then when he gets it, they might as well surround him and clobber him with bats. Fouls are called when it's obviously intentional, but otherwise they often seem to get away with it.
I don't recall this sort of thing with Kareem or Wilt or anybody. Obviously, those guys were double and triple teamed, but they weren't allowed to be mauled to death. Doesn't seem like basketball to me.
P.S. and the irony are all the little tickytack fouls that are often called where someone is barely touched. Seriously, what's the deal?
