1) He flops the most in the NBA.
2) He always hits those little PGs right after the whistle (YouTube this; he's done it like 8x to different PGs. Only on PGs though and never players his own size.).

Am I really going to be the first person to say it's because he's a ginger? :oldlol:

Anyways, I think it's a combination of flopping and dunking on people. No one likes to be one the losing end of a flop .. especially if you're not even involved in the play and the person flopping ends up smacking you as they flail about.

And no one likes to get dunked on in humiliating fashion.

There are better players who flop worse. Some of LeBron's flops in last season's playoffs didn't even involve any contact whatsoever. That kind of bs is worthy of far more criticism.

CP3's influence on Blake hasn't been good in this respect. He flops too much, but he is not as bad as people make him out to be. Watching accomplished players like Pierce jump sideways into people, Wade often looking for and1's and bailouts before his feet even touch the floor, and LeBron's getting knocked down by phantoms is far worse.

Some of it's jealousy too. He's charismatic and was a star upon coming into the league. He's a second year player with big endorsement contracts that make most NBA players green with envy.

He's the largest, most talented athlete I've ever seen flop like that.

Seriously though, he flops like such a bitch, but then acts like a big tough guy 20 seconds later when he commits an offensive foul that never gets called. He stares a guy down and it's like, are you fcuking serious? You were just rolling on the floor screaming "I want my mommy" 10 seconds ago.

I don't think it's the posterizations either, in fact, him dunking on that dude from the Knicks alone made him one of the most popular players last season. fans like a human highlight reel. it's all the 'extracurricular' stuff that annoys people. playing for the foul rather than playing for the basket = weak and annoying. duncan for instance has been fouled a ton in his career, some of them questionable (ie. star calls), but never got the feeling he played for the call.

Violating other teams for 5 dunks a night, in every arena in every state, will do it.

It's not his dunks that has made him hated, get real he aint the first dunker nor the best one in the history of the game. It's his fake tough guy attitude and the fact that when he dunks he is all tough and mean but even when a player half his size lightly touches him he goes down like a little bitch and acts like he has been roundhouse kicked by Chuck Norris.

Because of his flopping. But It's understandable. People have been beating up Blake all season. His teammates never stick up for him. He gets nailed hard every game. He probably has surpassed Dwight Howard for taking the most beatings a game.

Blake is far from the first to pull that bullshit.

And mind you, there's no "lightly touches" here. There's no touch at all.

His dunking on people and quick rise to stardom had nothing to do with it....
