Fizdale lamented the amount of ?touch fouls?? he?s seeing and said the difference in the game was the ?foul discrepancy.? On Sunday, the Nets shot 34 free throws to the Knicks? 16. The Knicks were called for 29 fouls to the Nets? 16.
Homecourt advantage isn?t what it was once.
?You?re going to touch a guy,?? said Robinson, who scored six points and had three rebounds. ?Did I aggressively touch him or did I tap? I just think it?s because we have New York across our chest.??
To hear coaches complain and lobby about reffing in the media is low budget, it solves nothing, never has never will.
Bad teams will always complain about reffing along with their fans. I look forward to the day we are so good we don't even realize this game is being governed by them.
In Robinson's case he really has done himself no favors by being a fouling machine his entire career. This reputation is following him, he's gotta learn how to play defense without fouling so much to be given more benefit of the doubt.
