    Sometimes it can a little hard to get a real feel for a game just from the reporting.

    For example, Kevin Martin / Sacramento...

    In 117 NBA games with the Kings over the past two years shot 204 free throws - 1.7/game.

    In 3 VSL games, he shoots 50 - 16.7/game, including 20 of 24 against Toronto - 20 of the team's 86 points.

    Somebody has been watching too many Dwayne Wade commercials...

    I think fouls on a whole are way up in the SL compared to the NBA. Guys can get up to 10 fouls in a game before fouling out. And players are taking advantage of the increase.

    Players are trying to make a good impression on anyone that will watch. Playing physical, aggressive ball is a great way to get noticed.

    I'm sure you're right. For Martin's sake I hope someone other than me is noticing or he's getting a whole load of floor burn for nothing.
