Refs literally refuse to give this man free throws. Im not a conspiracy guy but if anything is going to push me in that direction its this situation with Jokic. I just watched the first half of Pistons - Nuggets and he shot 0 free throws again and they could have given him like 8 easily. Aside from contact in the paint, every single shot he takes outside the paint defenders are whacking his arms and refs pretend everything is ok. Whats even funnier I watched Embiid before this and now I see his FTA are up to 20 in the game...I dont want to take anything from him, dude is unstoppable and knows how to draw fouls which is a valuable skill but refs willingness to give fouls to him and Jokic are day and night.
Yeah shit is fucked up
I just tell myself they do it because they know Jokic with FT would break the league
Watching this game and I’m seeing it first hand for the first time. It’s actually kinda crazy idk how Jokic hasn’t fought one of the refs yet or something.
He complains a lot
He should complain to the refs. People always hate seeing it, but it works. All of the high ft rate players complain a ton. It’s not their fault that it’s the only way to get the refs to make calls.
> He should complain to the refs. He does pretty often.
He’s been complaining maybe not on the same level as others but he’s by no means just sitting silent.
Why are so many Celtics fans supporting us
They hate the Sixers fans who are opposing this thread. Its a proxy war
Because they hate Embiid after dicking them every game
Because they just lost to the sixers while embiid shot more FTs than their entire team. Embiid deserves a fair number of his calls, but he probably gets rewarded for flopping a bit. Jokic on the other hand just gets nothing at all. They should probably
Its pretty blatant at this point... no more 76ers fans going on about how "Embiid is JUsT MoRE PHYsICaL" theres something deeper at this point, I dont know what it could be, and I hate getting into conspiracy stuff, but Joker must of said something to the
Embiid is not that much more physical to create this kind of discrepancy
Embiid gets a pretty soft whistle and then you watch Jokic get killed with no calls and you have to wonder.
Jokic deserves more free throws but Embiid legit gets hacked in the paint all the time. Do you expect Luke Kornet to stop him without fouling?
I don’t think anyone should be saying Embiid doesn’t deserve calls (OP isn’t suggesting that either). It’s just that there’s an obvious discrepancy in the way Jokic is called compared to other superstars. Jokic should get more free throws. That
Its not about Embiid vs Jokic. Embiid deserves the calls he gets. Its just Jokic isnt getting the calls he deserves .
I agree that jokic deserves more calls
Embiid has 37 free throws in 2 games. Jokic gets 4 a game, maybe with all the video evidence you want of him getting hacked. While Embiid flops for every call.
You can tell when watching both of them that Embiids playstyle is more conducive to getting high free throw attempts. Embiid keeps the ball low when he gets to the rim and then does a rip through. Jokic normally keeps the ball much higher because hes lo
Bro, this excuse is getting old. You can search this sub for posts showing how much contact Jokic takes and gets no call. Embiid by his play style should get more free throws. Our problem is that Jokic literally has 31 free throws in 11 games and many cal
Embiid just throws the ball up and it’s free throws and Jokic can have a dude on his back and nothing. Feel for Nuggets fans.
I love Philly fans
No, I’d rather not. Because, you know, I don’t cry over sports games. I also don’t celebrate early, like say, releasing confetti.
Malone needs to start standing up for him. The refs have something against Jokic and the league isnt doing shit about it, obviously. Malone needs to keep getting himself ejected until the situation changes. Kroenke needs to step up and pay his fines. Iv
Difference between Embiid and Jokic is that Jokic is good enough to dominate even without the refs giving him every call.
If your guys didnt hack embiid under the backet every time hed average 50
Only way Embiid would average 50 is if there were more refs.
Unbelievable. Jokic is fouled on almost every single play but referees **refuse** to give him fouls simply because hes white and/or plays in denver. smh
luka gets calls like crazy, relax dude
r/nbacirclejerk is just r/nba for people who are afraid of getting downvoted
Hahahah there it is I wondered where this jokic victim mentality came from
Hahahah yeah that one jackass is automatically representative of an entire interest group. Keep wondering.
Let’s not bring race into this. It’s clearly because he plays in Denver.
And kyrie doesnt get free throws because hes a flat earther. Lavine doesnt get free throws because he has red lips Cmon now stop being a race baiter
There is no reason to bring race into this discussion. Jokic is definitely getting too few calls, him being white has nothing to do with it.
Do nuggets fans ever stop bitching lmao, people acting like refs are meeting together and rubbing their hands together to conspire against jokic
How tf can you watch this shit and not see that thats exactly whats happening? Its ridiculous at this point
We only started bitching recently
And yet he still manages to put up 26 a night. If he shot as many FT’s as Embiid he’d being averaging 30+.
Nuggets fans are approaching a level of annoying only reached by Raptors fans after they won
The Celtics had Luke Kornet guarding an MVP candidate for long stretches of time........
Bro, neither you or I can talk about annoying fanbases. Outside of the Lakers and Raptors, we easily have the two worst. Nuggets aren’t even close to that level.
Bruh scroll through new on nights Nuggets play. They have the most embarrassing victim complex I can’t stand it.
lol sixers have one of the worst fan bases in the league, you guys are definitely worse than nugget fans. raptors fans are worse than sixer fans in general, but tbh its because raptors have actually won recently leading to an influx of fans
Look in the mirror
I dont think we need to hear from Sixers fans about this
It’s not just Nuggets fans who feel this way
Says the 76ers fan lol
I’m glad we have another one of these threads, it’s getting late and I was worried we wouldn’t have one today
Holy shit nugget fans are unbearable. We can play this same game with Ben Simmons but we don’t complain nearly as much as y’all.
No, it’s not just Nuggets fans. Everyone can see this. He simply brought up Embiid as a comparison and complimented him in the process. Calm down.
They are a Rockets fan. And anything you are missing with Ben Simmons, Embiid easily makes up for.
Funny these threads are created by non Nugget fans who see this same bullshit everyone else sees
[This graph says it all](https://i.imgur.com/wC8leDv.jpg)
They just don’t want the Nuggets scoring 140 a night.
Embiid lives rent free in nuggets and celtics fans
Philly hasn’t gotten out of the second round. Living rent free lmao
Living rent free... 76ers fans see a jokic post and come running... Tell me who is living rent free
You mean every NBA fan base except the 76ers
Embiid lives rent free at the free throw line
2 playoff series wins in 7 years. Maybe wait until dude has won something before talking about "rent free"
Why would Embiid live rent free in nuggets fans heads? Jokic has had more success.
Rent FREE? Nah, usually costs 2 free throws and 3 steps without dribbling.
Embiid flops alot lets be real...many times it looks like he doesnt look to score and just throws the ball in the air... not saying he doesnt get hacked time to time, but alot of it is him pulling trae young type stuff
