Why is everybody so concerned about fouls per 48? You're all toeing Flip's company line. Young bigs foul a lot, it happens because. 1) They aren't going to get a fair whistle very often. 2) offensive players get the benefit of the doubt. 3) lots of guys are going to be taking it to the rack in the NBDL as they can't shoot or they'd be in the league. 4) If they are shotblockers they are just plain going to pick up some fouls. 5) They can easily get loose ball fouls or over the back fouls if they are aggressive. It's easier to learn not to foul than anything else in the game. Who cares if he picks up fouls? That's pretty much your role as the 3rd-5th big man.
