Why Lebron is so hard to guard? Watch him get rewarded for flopping twice in a row. First he gets a foul called on his opponent when he tries to push off and loses his balance, falling out of bounds.Obvious flop. Then things get worse. New York's Tysen Chandler sets a typical hard screen to Lebron, who immediately flops, grabbing his neck where no contact was made, and baits the officials into calling a Flagrant Foul. Ridiculous.
Announcer Jeff Van Gundy make some great points during the video, pointing out that LeBron has clearly learned if he flops he will be rewarded with the foul, and he is better off pretending to be hurt in order to get the calls. This is ruining the experience for NBA fans. For the record, I am not a fan of the Knicks OR Heat.
This sequence spawned a huge run by the Heat in what was previously a close game. Directly after LeBron was "injured" he made numerous three-point plays and did not show any effects of the so-called flagrant foul. LeBron: made untouchable by the NBA by flopping to get foul calls and consistently getting away with traveling.
At the beginning of the 3rd quarter, Lebron continued flopping. Carmelo Anthony barely made contact while getting position for a post up, which sent Lebron stumbling to the ground. Foul on Carmelo. "I'm not gonna say anything anymore" sighed Jeff Van Gundy.
