Why donít any Celtics get the Star Treatment?!?

After watching Embiid getting all the love from the refs for the past two games, I am perplexed that our two stars, Tatum and Brown, donít get much love from the refs.  I understand that Tatum may not drive as much as he should, but Brown drives the lane hard, takes contact, and doesnít get a call either.  Honestly, the Star Treatment is ruining the game to the point that it is unwatchable to me.  I am so glad I didnít purchase the nba package this year because I have seen enough of this sorry product.

Finesse doesn't get the calls. Speed and power in your attack forces the calls.

Embiid actively seeking contact. He flails at times but heís always attacking one way or another. JB might have legit gripes since he seems to attack more than JT. JT rarely attacks other players and settled for lots of fadeaway etc. When he does, you notice it and ask yourself why he always doesnít do it.

If Tatum threw a little failing after putting the shot up like other players, he would get more calls. 




Also, getting foul calls is like gravity.   It just take a few officials over a few games making calls to push a player off the edge of non-superstar calls.
