Seriously this is how you become successful, take advantage of the little things that benefit you. Flop, complain, walk up and down the court calling for that T. Apparently the refs listen to and respond to that **** so we might as well get on board because we are going to die on the sword of taking the high road when the only way to win is to wallow with the pigs.
Literally just yelling loud as you go up. Like a tennis player grunting... all the ******** to trick the refs.

Its just funny where the line is - Player X is good at drawing contact and fouls... Player Y has trouble when guys body up on him and get physical. Somewhere there is a line there. DM has been more likely to play through contact or get an offensive foul when he decides to push the guy away from him. The NBA penalizes that... act like you got hit by a truck and you are now "good at drawing fouls" and maybe you can get some MVP buzz.

It really wouldn't take a lot of acting for Mitchell to get those calls. Just enough grimacing and learning to fall at the correct moment. Then he would be the one at the foul line a dozen times a game and averaging 35.

And I want to be clear... I hate it. It just seems we feel we should take the high road and play through contact. Bojan takes a ton of contact on his drives too... you have to show that contact and put it on display or else the refs just "let em play".

Some of this is weeded out in the playoffs so I don't think its the biggest issue we have at all... but its been annoying the way the game is officiated.

Not sure where to put this.

Here’s ESPN’s write up of Mitchell’s and Gobert’s fines. Not one mention of the 2-minute report and everything it said. Wtf are they doing over there?

I'd like to hear Quin say something right now. All I am reading is DM and Rudy. Where is he?
He is being smart about it. Already said enough that he has their back but no reason for a coach to put a bullseye on himself and his entire team. Time to shut up and play. Every team is convinced they get hosed and everyone knows that star players get babied. It is ridiculous but it is what it is. This is not a conspiracy. The 76ers game was officiated very poorly down the stretch but that happens. The more they say at this point the worse it becomes.
