Judging from the recent Denver game, it's because he constantly tries to work the refs to get the calls he wants.

Holy crap I never saw a team complain so much, led by Captain Crab.

look, when you're that big and that quick, its going to look to the naked eye that he got hit when he drives in the paint. reffs dont have instant replay.
Warspite:

Prince + filler for Kobe Bryant
To be honest the way Prince has played and with Kobes injury/age/mileage Im not sure I would do that deal either. Still Prince is more important and he wins the head to head battles with Kobe.

Is there a reason why you did not post this comment on post number two and wait for a few more comments that are on topic to do so?

Because he is Wade in 2006, he is Kobe in 2002, he is Jordan in 1998...
Lakers are 22-3 in OT last 6 seasons:Kobe best OT closer!

Because its common sense for a player that slashes alot during the games to get the calls. Kind of self explanatory, no?

This.

I don't get it, Corey Maggette does not get phantom calls. He gets contacted a lot. It's not his fault he is taking people off his dribble and putting his opponents on thin ice.

LeBron's FTA per game relative to his peers certainly suggest that this thread is mis-leading and you don't know what you're talking about.
