Is Carmelo not getting calls?

There tends to be a pattern to the behavior of bad teams in the NBA. There's the part where ownership expresses confidence in a soon-to-be-fired coach, the part where teammates start to blame one another, the part where fans boo from the opening tipoff. We're at the part in the Knicks' season where the referees come up for some blame, specifically with Mike Woodson saying that Carmelo Anthony isn't getting calls that, say, LeBron James or Kevin Durant would get. It's not clear that doing so would have the 3-8 Knicks above .500, but if true, it would certainly be frustrating for them.
