    Lebron- I Never flop, never been one of those guys

    The fiery coach was clearly perturbed about the calls that have been going against the Bulls, though. After Nazr Mohammed was ejected for pushing Heat star LeBron James to the floor, Thibodeau fired back that James might have been acting.

     

     

    "From my angle, I saw a guy basically flop," Thibodeau said of James. "I don't think it warranted an ejection. I understand a flagrant foul, I understand that, but ejection, no, nope."

     

    On Sunday, James responded to the flop allegations.

    "It's kind of the same as when people said I was overrated, I have the same response," James said. "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."


    I watched the last game and during one sequence James pushed Belinelli with his off arm 2-3 times to clear space.  Belinelli was obviously moved by it.  The third time they made contact Bellineli was charged a foul from what looked like absolutely nothing.  Belinelli fouled out, (as most Bulls players were in significant foul trouble and only a bench player for Miami was in any type trouble)  Again with this physical game with so may Bulls players in foul trouble guess how many fouls Lebron had?  You got it,  ZERO

    Lebron not flopping,  give me a break.  I don't remember the game but still remember the play very well when Lebron flopped on someone that I am not sure that they even touched him and he looked like he was hit by a truck. Even the announcers were saying the same thing.

    With this being said I think the Heat win the ring this year.  Now I also think if all the games were called evenly for every team overall,  not just game to game,  then i don't think the Heat would win without the benenfit of the refs.  I think the refs make it impossible to beat the Heat.  They are still a good team and could win without the refs,  its just the refs make it next to impossible to beat them..

    LaQueen - "Are you going to believe your lying self or Youtube?"  James, Wade, and Bosh flop like fish out of water.  They are the worst in the league (with Ginobli).

    That is why I dislike Miami so much.  As I have stated on other threads I won't watch any of their games unless they are playing the Celtics.

    Laughable for sure.  Even Jeter took a baseball flop if you will when he acted like he was struck on the hand in the batters box(last yr). And he was clearly never hit, but he was awarded first base.  My point is all athletes flop at one time or another. Own it if you do it is all I am saying. And clearly Lebron is a flopper along with Wade, who is the dirtiest player in the league.

    Unfortunately, all the quick fame and money has Lebron living in fantasy land... Im surprised he doesnt discuss himself in 3rd person more often.

    His opinion of himself is mighty high...

    Im just bewildered why sports writers rarely confront him regarding  his 4-5 step travels and mack truck/arm pushing drives..  Is it possible a league wide hush has been placed over these things or you get blackballed by the NBA?

    I guess what bothers me more than the flopping is someone like Lebron, who is one of the most physical players in the game today,  can go each game and seldom is even close to foul trouble, yet he lives at the line at the other end.  He probably commits as many offensive fouls as he does defensive fouls and still NO calls are made against him.

    especially after Lebron says he plays aggressively...

    Forget about foul trouble... how about even 3???

    Hypocrite!

     

    You keep complaining but you keep putting money in the pocket of the NBA!

    Stop watching the NBA if you're so unhappy with the way they do things, duh!

     



    Fierce ... its hard to boycot a monopoly. Its not like we can all go watch that ABA or something. Its not like boycotting a product, there is typically always another option.

     

    I think all we can do is criticize until the issues are addressed.

    And do you know why? If he was a Celtic the refs will be calling a least 1-2 fouls each game. Or just like they call on Pierce or Garnett...!

    Lebron is clearly the most talented player in the world right now ... and that mental elevation is fueled by infallable confidence. I think he literally believes that he does not foul, does not flop, does not flagrant, does not travel, does not palm, does not charge. The dude is not a mental midget, he is delusional. 

     

    Lets PRAY on the Griz having what it takes to beat the heat, because this guy needs to be grounded. Can you blame him for his delusion? Or are the trolls in black and white stripes to be blamed as the rule keepers?

     

    I blame the refs, not LBJ.

    Waiting for my car to be repaired this morning, I was stuck listen to Screamin' A and Bayless (Senseless?) debate this topic. I couldn't help  thinking, what the heck difference does  it  make whether LeBron flopped or not? Mohammad was going to be ejected either way.

    Of course LeBron gets special treatment from the officials. So did Michael, who clearly pushed  off Bryon Russell before that epic jumper vs. Utah. So do all the all-time greats.

    I agree - I have it on first hand authority the refs were TOLD not to foul Wilt out of any games!

    Anyone claiming with a straight face refs arent purposely allowing Leb to foul, travel etc  without whistling him for it are either ignorant, dont watch or understand the game or are caught-up in a fan/player blind love affair (figuratively speaking) similar to the Rondo groupies here

    If you don't like this type thread, don't respond to it.  Pretty simple.
