Dwight vs. Refs (the NBA)

      Obviously we all know Dwight has a tendency to retaliate to hard fouls. My question is when will the NBA finally give Dwight a little (little) respect and start calling flag. fouls? We as Magic fans who watch every game see how Dwight is pushed, shoved, hit, and mauled throughout games. Obviously if they called everything the way they call it for Lebron or Durant, the game would take several days because Dwight would be at the line the entire time. So, the NBA knows they can't give the same calls to Dwight as they do to those "superstar wings" but all I'm saying is when the other team is not even making an attempt at the ball, and just swinging wildly at Dwight's head or arms for that matter, can't they call a flagrant foul? Last time I checked when someone is going up for a bucket, the player has to at least make an attempt to block the shot. Now I know I'm not crazy, but that doesn't happen 75% of the time Dwight goes up. Yes he gets stripped, yes he fumbles the ball, but I'm not talking about those instances right now. I'm talking about the HARD fouls that made SHAQ retaliate, and will continue to make Dwight retaliate. I  know the NBA has changed, but 15 years ago, some of these fouls would ignite a brawl between both teams. I'm just saying, the NBA should give the Magic 2 shots at the line and the ball back, (flagrant foul), just to lessen the pain inflicted on Dwight. I know he's the biggest man in the league physically, but that doesn't mean he should have to take the abuse he does. And anyone, you or me, would retaliate the same if someone was swinging wildly at our heads all game. 

I am not trying to make excuses for Dwight, but I mean come on, give the guy a break. How do you feel?
