I'm talking about Shaq, not Dirk.
Shaq also got hacked at a ton without whistles in his favor. Easily the most difficult player to officiate that I've ever seen. Shaq did the same things that everyone else did, but it looked a lot worse when he did it because guys would go flying. Defenders would also grab and push on him in ways that would be obvious fouls against other players, but it wouldn't be called because it wouldn't move Shaq off of his position. He definitely dished out his punishment, but he took a ton of it too.
I don't get the traveling part.
