    Its shameful how he and Wade depend so much on the whistle, we saw in the All star game how frustrated and dejected he looked when the refs allowed a little bit of contact towards the end

    Eh... Kobe? No.

    Shaq and Dwight, yeah. Both of those guys are physical specimens. Kobe is not.

    Your agenda is quite clear with all of these pics.

    Every player flops these days. While I don't agree with flopping, if people were to only like stars that didn't flop, there wouldn't be any stars left to like. Our very own James Harden is a master at it.

    Lebron is talking about fouls that are physical enough to be flagrant yet called regular fouls.

    That may be the world of Shaq and Dwight, but it definitely doesn't include Kobe.

    He's still the best player in the NBA. I believe our beloved Rockets' best player heavily relies on the whistle to be effective also.

    I guess you aren't a fan of the Rocket's best player too?

    Kobe doesn't get hammered the same way those 3 other guys do. Kobe isn't built like those 3 guys either and that's why he doesn't get fouled like that.

    A few examples of Kobe getting fouled hard aren't reflective of how he normally gets fouled game to game.

    In that play, Ibaka jumps straight up and down, and Kobe jumps into him. And it looks like Sefalosha gets a lot of ball on the block.

    If you were the referee, who would you call the foul on? The guy who legally jumps straight up and down or the guy who gets a clean block?

    He's complaining about the lack of hard fouls being called "flagrant." Gibson's foul was easily a flagrant foul.

    not EVERY player but most do

    i just hate it when the flops are just straight exaggerated (cp3,lebrick)
    Harden flops but not to the extent of these other players

    LeBron gets hacked every time he goes to the basket, and there is no one else that drives to the basket as much as him. And Pull_Up_3 should delete his account because Harden is one of the biggest floppers in the NBA

    there were about 3 fouls against him that were significantly worse than his flagrant that got called regulars, that's what he's talking about.

    And lol at saying Kobe doesn't get calls, for every bad call he has ignored, there are at least 5 protected species fouls he gets, Dwight and Shaq never get those calls.

    Kobe and the other guys mentioned aren't the only ones that get fouled like that in the playoffs. In the playoffs, it's physical play all around so it applies to everyone then.

    In the regular season, to foul a guy like LeBron, Shaq, or Dwight... you have to foul them harder than someone like Kobe because they're all so much stronger than Kobe. That's all I'm trying to say. You don't nearly see it with Kobe as much as those 3 guys because of their style of play and how much stronger they than most NBA players.

    Yeah I should reword that. Most do. Harden surely does... just as much CP3. The guy flails into players intentionally to get the refs to blow a whistle. Sometimes that's his only purpose rather than to actually score. I'm trying to objective as possible.

    You're in the minority with that one.
