NBA Officiating, Superstars, and Big Markets

Here are some interesting stats from the Pacers-Heat game one

Paul George - 6 fouls
Roy Hibbert - 5 fouls
George Hill - 5 fouls
16 fouls between the three in 80 mins of play

Dwayne Wade - 1 foul
LeBron James - 1 foul
2 fouls between the two in 83 mins of play

16 to 2 fouls in the same minutes.

Riiiiggghhhtttt! Call me a conspiracy theorist but that doesnt seem quite right! Are the Pacers really that much more prone to foul? They foul 8 times for every 1 time a Miami Superstar fouls in the same time on the floor? Are the Pacers really that much more aggresive players? I thought this was the playoffs. You know, where they let the players play a little. And does James and Wade just not know how to foul? Am I the only one that sees this? Why isn't this crap a national story. The NBA is freaking rigged and it is glaringly obvious!!!! And people tell me Miami is an exciting team to watch. Im telling you watching 2 guys shoot free thows all game isnt exactly exciting basketball to me. And am I the only one that gets tired of seeing LeBron James get foul calls when there is absolutely no contact? Literally zero contact on a drive?
