INDIANAPOLIS – LeBron James vehemently denies he’s a flopper but openly recognizes it as an effective strategy. “Some guys have been doing it for years, just trying to get an advantage,” James said Monday in the lead-up to Tuesday’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. “Any way you can get an advantage over the opponent to help your team win, so be it.” That position illustrates a friction that’s developed over the past two seasons between James’ Miami Heat and their current opponent, the Indiana Pacers. It’s fair to say the Pacers and the Heat have different views on flopping. One side thinks it’s an art and the other a menace.
Oh, well then, I guess that explains that. “Some” guys have been doing it for years. Not going to say who. Just some guys. And it’s totally justified because any way you can help your team win, so be it. So in summation. Lebron doesn’t flop but he totally understands why some people do and even thinks its totally cool. Got it. Now I understand the whole situation. Doesn’t flop but if he were to, well then you wouldn’t really be able to blame him.
You know what the craziest part of this article was? Dwyane Wade’s quote when talking about flopping.
“It happens,” Wade said. “We would have no NBA possibly if they got rid of all the flopping.”
What? We would have no NBA if people didn’t purposefully cheat? Maybe the craziest logic I have ever read. He’s almost made me believe it too, that’s the scary part. Just so wrong it’s sort of right. Like when someone makes a joke you don’t get but you know you should so you just stand there nodding pretending to understand. That’s how I feel right now with D-Wade’s quote. It’s so crazy I feel like I missed something here. Did I? I’m honestly asking now.
I really do hate Wade so much more than Lebron
