Everybody whines about fouls. However, D. Rose gets hacked a lot. I think the only person who gets hacked more than him is Dwight Howard. I do think the refs aren't calling fouls in Rose's favor like they do Kobe. If players even breath on Kobe wrong, the refs are gonna give them a foul. They should give Rose the same respect.

Yeah, sometimes Howard, as big as he is, simply gets killed...

So if you can't beat them just hit them, then complain about bullies on the playground beating on your child. Maybe the bully grew up watching the playoffs where lesser players beat the good players to death.

He has to understand that he is not going to dominate this game without being hit

He has to understand that he is not going to go to the hoop untouched every time. And what does he think he is going to happen in round 2 or 3? He thinks players are just going to stand there and let him go to the hoop and not foul him hard?
B/C he is a ***** and all the new bandwagon jumpers and Rose <MOD CUT> make him think he should just glide to the basket.

I don't recall Jordan ever complaining. He hit the weights.

Talk about whining....

You can google any big name player and hear people crying that they whine about hard fouls. Basically, people that already dislike a player look for pretty much any reason they can to drag them down even if they are just doing what every other player does.

I mean seriously Randy, re-read your last post...err tantrum about Rose. Yeah, Rose is the one won with the problem it can't possibly be you and Mr. I show up for the playoffs problem. LOL.

People that complain about Derrick haven't been paying attention. There is so little to not like about this kid. You can hate the media coverage, heck I think we all hate ESPN sometimes, you can think he is not MVP, but I have no idea how you could dislike Rose. Works his tail off, humble, came from a terrible area with a clear head and is driven by winning.

Perhaps you guys want more egotistical, uncoachable players? I'm guessing people that hate rose were BIG Latrell Sprewell fans?

Dwight Howard is the only one who complain. He gets killed each night. Some of those fouls being super hard or they don't make a move on the ball. If this happened to others, it would be a Technical Foul. But I can't name one player who has got a T from a foul on Howard. Yet, Howard gets Techs like hot cakes.

As for Rose, he gets plenty of calls.

I agree with the above, Howard gets killed every game, but he plays deep in the paint, is huge and when he gets hacked he isn't going flying to the ground like Rose is play after play.

It comes with the style of play of Rose, but Rose takes a TON of punishment, mostly because he is so small and in the air when he gets hammered.

I'm still waiting for a link of a story or video of D Rose complaining any more than most NBA stars.
