Default Lebron James gets T'd up for flop

I like it and yes I want it enforced on all teams including the Clippers to reduce flopping tremendously in the game. Still surprised they called it like this, especially on the biggest star in the NBA already. In the preseason no less.

Refs shouldn't be able to determine a flop or not on the floor. Why weren't they doing this before if they could see it. Players getting fined afterwards by the league I'm fine with, but I wish in place of fines they would get technicals (after the game). Which I think would pretty much eliminate flopping pretty decently.

Ask for that play, I don't feel LeBron flopped. There was a lot of contact there to me.

Wasn't a flop.

But do think it was a predetermined message to Lebron to let him know that he's a flopper and no one is safe from the whistles.

Well, that or it's the NBA playing PR in the preseason and saying the same thing except it's a lie. Probably that.

There was contact. The ref thought the contact was increased by LeBron's flailing is all I can figure. Sort of like how Kobe got that flagrant for whipping his arm back on a jumper a few years back.

It was the follow through with the right arm after the play that did it.

Bron flops harder in his sleep than this no homo

I agree 100% it's definitely a message, look for CP3, Griffin, Manu, Harden and the likes to get similar treatment early in the season.

arm flail + spin

I'm LeBron hater, and I don't think it wasn't even that bad compared to some real NBA flops.

Preseason. They are enforcing for regular season. And it looked as if LeBron knew what he wanted to do but had to much speed going in. Its going to be an interesting season.

I don't mind this call. It's preseason and the league is just sending the message that flopping offensively or defensively will not be tolerated. His reaction on that play, given his size and all, was just way too much.. we've seen plays where the defender doesn't even make contact and he snaps his head back like he got shot. Terrible acting job (although he's getting better every year).

Wasn't a flop, but the fact that he just ran into the dude, and even attempted to play that off deserved a T.

At halftime, that ref told the Heat he was wrong and apologized for getting the call wrong.

Its preseason for officials too.

I think it was the refs testing the waters.

Poor Manu though.
