You can't set 2 different tones and then also go out of your way to make sure the other team is in the penalty a couple minutes into each quarter.
You have to give some credit to the player though. If it was so easy to get to the line like that, everyone would do it.
People did the same thing with MJ...they bitched an bitched and bitched about his free throws.
If it's so easy...get to the line more. My point is that it's not easy and that guys like Durant and Harden deserve credit.
