View Full Version : LeBron says he doesn't get enough calls.

"I thought LeBron did a nice job attacking tonight,” Cleveland Coach Mike Brown said. “I thought there were a couple times when he attacked … you see a guy turn his body, you think it’s a foul. Obviously it wasn’t called tonight. Not just once, not just twice, but a few times on his drives. You just gotta keep playing and go from there, but I thought he did a nice job.”

James averaged 29 points a game entering Sunday’s game and hasn’t scored fewer than 22 in the month of February.

Brown wasn’t the only one irked by the lack of fouls James drew. Sunday afternoon’s game was physical and testy and the officials let it be.

“I think one thing that hurts me is because of my size and my strength, I feel like I go to the hole just as much as anybody in this league, and sometimes I don’t get the benefit of the calls,” James said. “There were a few times I got grabbed, I got pushed, I got smacked, there were no calls.”

lol lebron needs to watch some game tape of paul pierce before he stops whining

or of kobe becasue even if kobe doesnt get the call he stays in the play and a lot of times finds a way to get the ball in the hoop

this is ridiculous cry baby bull**** him and his boy varejao have a lot of nerve playing how they do then expecting to get calls....LEBRON WILL NEVER EVER WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP because he is still a kid....kevin durant will win at least one.

i hope he gets fined for this or someone comes up with numbers to prove the insanity YOU LOST LEBRON HA HA HA HA HA IT WASNT THE FIRST TIME THE MAGIC BEAT YOU EITHER "MR MVP" HOW DID THE FOURTH QUARTER GO

The whole league has this issue of superstar calls. Only Lebron is a big enough tool that he is actually going to complain that he isn't getting enough.

What a *****.

Raph12
02-22-2010, 01:39 PM
Dude I love Lebron's game, but he's a baby, he gets more calls than anyone in the league.

He drops his shoulder and bulldozes over guys (ie. Pietrus in the Orlando game) and it's called a blocking foul. He's just talking about the times he drove full force into Dwight, when Dwight went straight up, they were no calls and rightfully so.

Doesn't he notice that he gets the least amount of calls against him for someone who does so much and plays so physical on both ends.

his FT attempts are down a full attempt per game this year over last...

He's not really wrong. He's built like a tank and, because of that, he sometimes doesn't get calls he should get. Much like Shaq and Yao didn't get calls that other guys would went because they're so big that it doesn't seem like a foul when they're hit, a ragdoll like Gerald Wallace gets some calls that LeBron wouldn't.




And stop complaining that he gets "superstar" calls, he doesn't get those more than anyone else, you just notice it more because he drives so much more than a guy like Kobe.

You actually expect to be taken seriously with a statement like that?

Sure some calls get missed in general, for every player in the league, but to say that he probably does deserve more calls is ********.

come on man..your probably the greatest player, but its ok normal to miss shots..
its all about lebron and he's ego..

yes i agree he is the best right now..
but everytime he makes a shot he boasts, if he misses he complain..
if he's winning he cant wait for the game to finish before he dance..
when they lose..he walks out and cry..

02-22-2010, 02:06 PM
Mmm he still is scoring plenty of points, Don't think the couple of calls he doesn't get is gonna hurt him. No one gets every call they want, But they always don't cry to the media about it either.

Lost me right there, maybe in like the last couple of games, but before that, Dwight was getting 4, 5 fouls a night for like 20 games in a row. He started the season avging 4.5fpg, now he's much more patient on defense, he picks his spots and goes up when he thinks he'll get the block and stands straight with his arms up high to alter the shot without a chance for fouls.

Dwight is a physical guy, but guys are physical with him as well, problem is, the only guys willing to actually battle it out with him are Shaq and Perk, everyone else just tries to flop.

I disagree with Lebron on this but you sound like a bitter Celtics fan (I don't know why you're so bitter towards Lebron but you sound like it). I guarantee you Lebron wins a championship by the end of his career. His game is just too great for him not too. And I seriously hope you don't believe Pierce is better than Lebron? Just want to make sure.

Super.

02-22-2010, 02:29 PM
He definately could be getting to the line more.

My problem with it is that in some games it is like the refs dictate that they don't want LeBron driving. So at the beginning of the game they will let the calls go, and then completely changes his gameplan.

That being said, he definately gets alot of calls, but he also puts himself in position for those calls. Wade, Melo, Kobe, they are all great and get to the line alot. Maybe its not that they are getting superstar calls, but maybe they are able to put the defenders in bad positions. Now I am not saying they dont get extra calls, but I think it gets exaggerated.

Complaining to the media about foul calls just starts causing free throw disparities. The best example is when Phil Jackson complains about foul calls especially during playoffs and when his team is on the verge of losing (just ask the Rockets) and then the free throw disparity shifts heavily to his team. Don't complain to the media. Complain during the game. You know the refs don't want to eject LBJ, Kobe, Wade, or any of the other superstars. The complaining to the media part is just a way to get calls your way cause the public is already feeling sympathetic for you not getting calls cause you said you aren't and refs start feeding into that bias.

Squad13
02-22-2010, 02:55 PM
Lebron gets way more calls than anyone else, for all those that say Kobe gets tons of calls, while at times he gets the benifit of the doubt, there is no question he gets less than the likes of Wade and Prince James. I remember Jeff Van Gundy saying he gets the least amount of calls of all the stars too.

Lebron cant be serious. The guy gets touched and goes to the FT line every single time he drives it in especially on fastbreaks.

BTW if you would see the Heat games, you'll notice the refs aren't calling half the calls the use to for Wade. Im not saying this just because ima Heat fan and a fan of Wade because every year before this one, it was ridiculous how many times he gets the calls. But honestly the same cant be said for this year. I dont know why but the refs are swallowing their whistle a little more often for him.

Kobe doesn't get a lot of superstar calls because he complains soo much when there are non-calls. Im the biggest Kobe fan ever but there is a reason he gets t-ed up soo much.

Lakersfan2483
02-22-2010, 06:17 PM
Lebron gets more calls than anyone in the NBA and he is whistled for less fouls than any other superstar player. There is absolutely no reason for him to complain about non-calls when he shoots an average of 10 free throws a night. A lot of his calls are warranted, but quite a few are phantom fouls and or anticaption fouls in which the ref blows the whistle assuming he's going to get fouled going to the rack. No one in the NBA gets that type of treatment.

*During last year's Eastern Conf. Finals, he was living at the line and getting to the line 12 or more times per contest. He lives at the free throw line and gets major love from the refs.

lebron will get the benefit of the doubt from most refs. ive seen lebron get and 1's from driving to the hoop and barely getting touched as he finishes his drive. one of my pet peeves about the nba is players whining about foul calls. unless you get thrown to the ground the player needs to quit complaining and get back on defense.

mlisica19
02-22-2010, 06:34 PM
Most big guys whether they drive in or stay in the paint never do get enough calls. Yet who cares, ur big toughen up. YOU SAY UR THE BEST, U WANNA BE THE BEST WELL ACT LIKE IT

Jordan played the game, and so did everyone else and they WON games. Lebron stop complaining and focus of winning this year.

He neevr commits to what he says he will do, dunk contest for w.e reason it may be. Hes grown up but so far in the wrong way. Hes to flasy at times and he talks 2 much.

cmon LeBron. I love you dude, but for every hack on you that doesn't get called, those plays where you just put your head down and find a body, and go to the line, happen 3 times.

Did he honestly say that? He leads the league in FT attempts I believe besides Howard. But Howard's fouls are intentional cuz he cant shoot fts.
Does this guy live on his own planet?? Unbelievable. He even gets phantom calls, easily the refs most favorited star. Pretty nuts he said this.

No, Lebron. You were treated like everybody else for once in the 4th quarter and you were neutralized. How does it feel to be officiated like everybody else in the league for once?

For anyone complaining kobe gets as much "superstar treatment" as lebron.

Kobe Bryant - 7.3 FTA
Dirk Nowitzki - 7.3 FTA
Chauncey Billups - 7.3 FTA

All 3 "jump shooters" are tied averaging 7.3 FTA per game. Next up the list, another jump shooter...

Kevin Martin - 7.0 FTA

So with your logic, a guy like Kobe or possibly even Dirk should be getting more FTA because of their "superstar" status more so than Billups or even Martin even if they're all practically "jump shooters."

Lebron is also averaging 10.2 FT's a game

he should not be complaining at all

Sometimes he gets hacked and they miss it but he gets a lot of touch calls in his favor too. Couple that with the fact that he's initiating the contact the majority of the time and it all evens out.

LeBron goes to the rim way more than Kobe, Billups, etc. That is why he goes to the line more.

LeBron goes to the rim way more than Kobe, Billups, etc. That is why he goes to the line more. Thats my thinking as well. He and Wade do get questionable calls, but they attack the paint a lot more so its easy to see why.

Still, no reason to complain.

I'm just ready for Lebron to challenge someone to a dance off at mid court instead of a tip off. Winner's team starts off with the ball.

lebron has 1.5 more FGA at the rim per game than kobe on the season

Lebron and his team should take advantage of the free throws they get and make them. The NBA doesn't want to reward them for missing so many.

He lost that night. What do you expect... LeBron is a soar loser. He can't handle losses. It reflects his leadership. Don't worry he isn't losing sleep over it, the only thing he is losing sleep over is making up pre game dances.

instead of lebron *****ing about calls maybe he should try working on his free throws a little more so he makes more free throws....this is why lebron will never be like jordan, along with kobe. i've never seen grown men throw as big of fits as they do when they don't get a call. and then they go and try and kill someone on defense, and they don't get called for fouls there either.....nut up or shut up princess james

In the last 4 games combined Lebron has committed 3 fouls.

In the last 166 minutes of play he managed to foul someone just 3 times.

He has 0 fouls in his last 98 minutes.

Based on this, Lebron is right. He isn't getting enough calls.
