Just a friendly reminder this is a very real quote from LeBron:
"I don't need to flop. I play an aggressive game but I don't flop. I've never been one of those guys. I don't need to flop. I don't even know how to do it. So it doesn't mean much to me.
And that's precisely why the Grizzlies announcers are just utterly disgusted by this. Are we to believe that Dillon Brooks, who is giving up 2 inches and 25 pounds to LeBron can toss him like a sack of potatoes? Because, again, LeBron doesn't even know how to flop. He won't do it. He doesn't *NEED* to do it. This is the shit why he's so annoying on the court. The dude is the softest superstar and the biggest hypocrite out there. It's like every other game he pulls out some absurd flop and it's always hilarious to remember that quote.
This is just vintage LeBron though. He'll probably talk about how he read a book and how there was actually a foul per NBA rulebook page 72, bullet point 2. Again, this is just LeBron not knowing how to be normal or likable. If he joked around about how he flopped 5-6 times a game, I'd actually respect him. Just take advantage of rules like wide receivers do every single incomplete pass. But LeBron doesn't have that in him. He has to talk about how he doesn't even know how to flop when there's evidence through the roof that he's an all-time flopper.
Good for the Grizzlies announcers too just calling out the bullshit. I believe the analyst for the Grizzlies here is Brevin Knight, who spent a decade in the league. This is what I want to hear. I want to hear announcers in utter disgust on shitty flops and even more so when a ref falls for it. Then again, I have zero respect for refs, so I don't expect them to ever get a call right. It's just so fucking annoying by LeBron. You're a top-2 player of all-time. You don't need to do this shit. Let us talk about your game since you're so desperate to be liked.
PS: Grayson Allen being disgusted by the call might piss me off even more. This is exactly what you do Grayson.
