I love this video. I'd post it on face-book but it tells you to open the link in a separate video player and there's still idiots out there that don't know how to do that.

What's with the narrator's voice? People don't talk like that anymore. Video seems fake.

You can pretty much switch this play with Gallo's, and the comments from the video match up pretty damn well.

I noticed that almost every team that flops is considered elite or at least solid playoff teams. I wonder if flopping keeps these a notch above the rest.

No, it's just that nobody pays attention to the bottom-feeders.

If you are losing by double digits every night, what good does flopping do for you?

man flopping is a solid skill, im gonna miss it. i remember a game my school played last year where we were up by 5 with like 2 minutes left. all our shooters were cold and our 20 point lead had come down like crazy. I got the ball off the screen and remember someone barely touched me during the process. by instinct I just fell to the ground and got 2 FTs. we won by 2

gotta do what you gotta do

That was a pretty heavy shot with an arm he got right there, and it was completely unexpected. It wasn't a flop IMO, take a closer look at the gif/video.. It looks weird, as it was unexpected, but no flop, maybe a LITTLE exageration that the guy in the video said was not gonna be penalized. Just faking the foul/contact, which is not the case here, so give the guy a break.

He probably would not have been penalized on that particular foul but he definitely exaggerated more than just a LITTLE.

After he copped the bump that should have been it. The flail and fall over was all acting..

I watched it live. It was pathetic..
There was no need for a flail and fall over. It's the same amount of contact anyone getting hit on a screen would recieve. He felt it, stopped, then overreacted..
I'm not saying bronzey flops all the time, he's no Blake griffin, but the times he does are shameless...

That was more than a little exaggeration. Lebron is 7'4", and weighs 380 pounds of pure muscle. No way a man that size looks like he just got shot from a slight check in the back.

I don't know if Lebron plans on making Space Jam 2 or what, but he needs to work on his acting.

I thought they did a no-call on it because Chandler was in position and LeBron didn't get help to let him know he was there. LeBron's fault, LeBron's flop.
