Your dad would be super pissed right now at LeBron James. Because, yeah, all that horsin’ ’round, trying to up-sell a simple hard foul into a flagrant by magically LAUNCHING yourself into the cameras, IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES….
You know the rest.
Still, there were some truthers on Twitter last night who INSISTED to me (usually, with some choice expletives mixed in) that LeBron had merely “lost his balance.”
Why of course he did. The finest athlete in the world, perhaps, suddenly and inexplicably loses all motor skills, right around the time he thinks he should be getting a whistle.
Sorry, but everybody with eyes has seen this move before. But if you haven’t here’s a decent compilation of LeBron’s best flops.
(Note: Skip to the end, if you must, to see the ironically similar “dive” he took when now-teammate and former Knick J.R. Smith merely touched him in the corner. Priceless!)
