Per the NBA rules; a lot of fouls against Dwight are flagrant 1 fouls


A flagrant foul-penalty (1) is unnecessary contact committed by a player against an opponent.

Dwight is very tightly officiated for whatever reason.  It was like that in Orlando as well.


I'm not sure how many times Dwight was called for offensive foul for just backing down his defender or simply getting position in the post. Some of the fouls the officials call are exactly why the NBA is so damn soft today.

or its exactly how the nba is called in order for them to cheat

Offensive fouls vis-s-vis a big guy versus a small guy are disproportionally enforced.  Its always been that way.

He's unfairly officiated because he's bigger and stronger than most other post players. It was like that with Shaq too. It's sad but it's true.

What I don't get is how you can breathe on people like LeBron and James Harden and it's a foul but Dwight legitimately gets flagrantly fouled with no play on the ball and they don't whistle it. Dwight gets more BS offensive fouls called against him than any other player.

Dwight gets abused folks. Had Blake and Nash not broken apart at the end of G2 and missed G3 and G4, I believe G3 was set up for a Lakers victory with Dwight fouling out at least 2 Spurs. But once the Lakers dressed all their guards in suits for G3, the refs said, "screw it" and let the Spurs abuse Dwight and Pau.

It was disingenuous of Reggie to criticize Dwight in G4 for only getting 2 FGAs, without balancing it with discussion of the Spurs abusing him. But, that was not the series narrative. Instead, it was "Dwight is a big whiny baby who needs to grow up."

Now, it's Dwight's responsibility to get in shape and be a beast next season.

Blair's hot breath should be a foul alone by itself.

Blatche playing "Guess who" with Dwight is also interesting.. wonder if it was called

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
