It was obviously a foul, the ref would've called it, why do you have to roll around holding your head and acting hurt?

And then you're so surprised nobody likes you

Drama Queen

People talk about Lebron hate, but he is the opposite of Derrick Rose, Its hard not to hate him. Does he have tremendous ability yes. He is a drama queen, a**hole, vain, self-indulging, overrated athlete, Yes, yes, yes, and yes. 6'8 260 and you flop like a girl all the time. Come on people, I know the man has talent but you are going to call yourself king dont act like a jester!!!!!!

It's the Whiplash

The way his neck snapped back, and fact that he wasn't expecting it, probably was why he was rolling around.

Neck injuries suck, I got whiplash from a car crash once. BUT that hit wasn't that hard, so Lebron might have been acting just a little.

Dude he got whiplash. I've

Dude he got whiplash. I've been hit from behind before (by someone nowhere near as big as Chandler), you don't know it's coming and therefore can't brace yourself for impact and it hurts like a &$#%#&@!. Stop hating, if this was someone else it wouldn't even been mentioned as flopping.

Yes it was a foul, but no way

Yes it was a foul, but no way was it a flagrant, that was 90% Lebron's momentum carrying him into Chandler, Tyson had to lean forward a bit just to brace against the momentum of Lebron.

I don't care if he flops around, because he might have had whiplash, it just frustrates me when the referees overreact, nothing Chandler did was qualitatively different from a regular illegal screen.

I also hate flopping.

I don't want to overlook what appears to be an act just becaues I like watching LBJ play, so I'm trying to decide if this was a flop or a legitimate reaction caused by the whiplash of the Chandler hit. Right now I'm leaning toward whiplash because as far as I know LBJ doesn't have a reputation as a flopper. Or am I just ignorant about his rep?

And I have to agree w/unibrow--this poster's name combined w/the picture of two shirtless dudes is a bit disconcerting.

Sad

That was a major flop by him n they call him great you would Neva see the Jordans magics birds n kobes of the world pull a actress move like that. He got hit but it's that second reaction he did that turn that whole play into a flop. My thing is Lebron just did same thing to john Lucas last time heat played bulls n you didn't see Lil Lucas pull that actress move but Lebron gets a pass SMFH

ITS WHAT I WAS TELLING MY

ITS WHAT I WAS TELLING MY FRIENDS!!!!!!

IF THAT WAS THE FIRST ILLEGAL SCREEN, IT WOULD'VE BEEN A REGULAR FOUL, BUT HE SET 2 ILLEGAL SCREENS BACK TO BACK

THEN YOU HIT 'EM W/ THE T

btw, yes lebron acted a lil... i doubt he was "dropped" to the floor... he clearly throws himself in the ground... BUT, every player would've done this, it's just that when you're the BIW people gonna talk about it. not to mention chandler was already in foul trouble, you want him to foul out

LeBron flops too... He acted

LeBron flops too... He acted like he got shot. I mean, he did the same thing to little John Lucas not too long ago and not even Lucas fell like that.

Wait, LeBron not a flopper?

You haven't seen this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihuOrQHSjWQ&feature=fvst

I don't know why refs give him or other floppers so many calls. LeBron's so big and strong, it defies physics for him to fall back like he's 100 lbs. That was a foul by Chandler, but as stated earlier, James did the exact same thing to Lucas and it was not called flagrant(because it's not flagrant). He flopped about five other times during the finals. He's easily a top-20 flopper. The fact that he's not top-5 is a huge problem. There are about 100 guys in this league who'd rather try to act and game the refs than make legit basketball plays. These players should be punished for flopping because this refs apparently to not have enough pride to punish floppers. If I saw a flopper react strongly, I'd swallow my whistle. It looks worse to reward the flopper than to let the guys play.

Lebron is a great flopper. If

Lebron is a great flopper.

If Chandler got a flagrant 2 for that screen on Lebron it'd be one of those worst calls ever.

Flopping is bad but refs fall for it which makes it worse.

Lebron falling into the stands when JR Smith barely touched him was a joke.

The touch fouls he got 3 pt. plays off were crazy too.

NYK

The foul by Chandler was no doubt a foul. Yes he flopped at the end but Chandler wasn't standing straight up. Chandler threw his chest at him. That's not a proper screen.

The flop on JR Smith, while I hate flops a lot, LeBron had no choice but to flop. Smith gave him a bit of a push that threw LeBron off balance while already on the baseline, it was either flop or fall out of bounds and lose the ball. In all honesty, I hate flops but that was probably a smart one.
