Think about this for a second…
Before Game 4, LeBron James hadn’t fouled out of a SINGLE basketball game.
He had NEVER fouled out of a game as a member of the Miami Heat, PERIOD.
He had never fouled out of a playoff game in his entire CAREER!
There certainly seems to be something a LITTLE fishy about that, doesn’t there?
It’s a star’s league. EVERYBODY knows that. The refs have always catered to the stars at the expense of the role players.
Bird, Magic, and Jordan always got the calls.
Kobe, LeBron, and Durant always get calls.
James is a very physical defender, who gets more come from behind shot blocks than any player that comes to my recent memory. Not to mention, he goes to the rim HARD, and is almost ALWAYS far bigger than the player guarding him.
You would think that a combination of offensive fouls due to his superior size and strenth, and defensive fouls on his come from behind shot blocks would get him an OCCASIONAL DQ.
Don’t be surprised if he doesn’t foul out of another game for the NEXT 4 years…
It’s a star’s league, baby.
