ill watch more closely on the 2nd to see these phantom foul you're calling for lmao
kobe fans are too predisposed to touch fouls also known as playing defense
edit: there could have been 1 foul called in the 3rd. he only drove the ball into the lane twice all quarter though. sat out part of the 4th, there was nothing egregious when he was in, refs called it pretty fair. he settled for a lot of jumpers, had some wide open dunks, nash set him up pretty good with some open looks. it wasnt the refs fault kobe wasnt getting to the line
You can't be serious. He went to the rack on several occasions that should have been foul calls.
Whatever. 16 shots in the paint, most of which were going to the bucket, and 0 drawn FTs. But sure, that historic
discrepancy was justified.
