So far in the Western Conference Finals, about
After Game 3, the Lakers collected materials about LeBron’s too few free throws in the Western Conference Finals so far, and appealed to the league, hoping that he can get what he deserves in the future.
Many outsiders questioned that LeBron and the Lakers enjoyed privileged treatment and asked the referee to take special care of them. Vogel disagrees with this.
"Our complaint is very simple. We are not a formal complaint. The league has an entry for whistleblowing. You can submit whistles that you think are problematic. This season, we do this in every game, every team It's all the same, so this series is no different."
"So, now some of the outside world's descriptions of fouls are wrong."
In the four games in the Western Conference Finals so far, the Lakers and Nuggets have scored 113 free throws each.
Nuggets coach Malone said after the last game that they will also complain about too few free throws through normal channels, but he said the team does not rely on this, "If we want to use this as an excuse, we can get stuck in it. Discuss this easily. But I won’t, because no one can make us lose, except ourselves."
