    Default Lebron's Flop against DJ Augustin

    Let's address something we all can agree on that was just horrible. DJ Augustin barely grazes Lebron's shoulder and he falls down like he was hit by a cannonball fired from an 18th-century British frigate.

    The ref gets suckered again by one of the best actors in the game and the Pacers collect another turnover at a very critical moment of the game. Reggie and Steve Kerr both got a good laugh out of it and Marv brought up Vogel's comments stated last year about the Heat being the Kings of flopping.

    If he doesn't get a fine from the NBA for it, I'll be very disappointed.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Amen! If that doesn't constitute a flop, then I don't know what does.

    Lebron fell faster than WTC #7.

    Lebron will not get a fine for flopping and we all know it. He has been flopping all year and nothing has come of it.

    Seeing someone the caliber of Lebron resort to that kind of flopping is just horrendous and he is above that crap. The fact that these refs fall for it, especially the one with DJ, is just laughable.

    The NBA needs to put a stop to this. Im not just *****ing cause of Miami. Though thats fresh in mind. Its making the NBA a bigger joke. I mean you see less flops in soccer. Destroying the game. Its embarrassing to the players, fans, and more so officials. Stop it before it gets too out of hand. Acting skills should not be a benchmark for drafting a player.
    If games are won and lost on a calculator and piece of paper, then why do we bother to play them?

    In the 4th or overtime battier set a screen and then flopped when he didn't even get touched. He then had to scramble to get back on defense. I have my doubts the two crotch shots will get fines either, though both were obvious flagrant nts in every sense of the word.

    Last year Darren Collison got called for a foul for shoving Lebron James to the ground on a rebound. The lack of contact was even more egregious and I thought it was absolutely hilarious that anyone would believe that a 160 pound man could shove a 265 lb, firmly planted man into the camera guys in the front row.

    No fine then, don't expect one now.

    Battier's flop there in the last few minutes trying to get a foul on PG while getting through the screen was worse. I expect a fine on that one, but not LeBron's.

    This used to be a league where men played basketball until MJ came around. LBJ is just the next in a long line of pampered babies that the league props up to make more money.

    haha, no kidding. I'm so sick of the LeBron and his flopping. I don't even think Augustin could move him an inch if he ran into him at full speed.

    There should also be a fine for Battier's knee to Hibbert's family jewels. Anyone remember who reached up and hit West between the legs later in the game? Was it Cole? At least they called fouls on both of those.

    I also kind of remember another call where Hansbrough got hit in the face and they called the foul on him! Marv and Steve Kerr were both speechless.

    Another dirty play by Battier.

    Every player on Miami flops. We know this, but the NBA will not do anything about it

    Battier did some pretty crappy things last night. I always liked him as a player before last year. But even then I thought he was just trying to play hard and got a little carried away. Last night it was obvious he was coming out trying to do physical damage. That whole thing with Tyler where he grabbed his arm and wouldn't let go was embarrassing.

    It's like he was trying to start a fight so the refs would be all over any physicality for the rest of the series.

    Stop handing out minimal fines for players making millions upon millions. Start handing out suspensions, and I bet a coach will put a stop to it himself.

    I don't have a link, but I remember someone posted who had been warned and fined for flopping and the biggest culprits, the Heat and Chris Paul were few and far between. The league really doesn't care.

    Yeah definitely sucked. Obvious flop.

    That said I think officiating was slightly tipped in our favor today. Lebron had a few drives where he clearly was getting slapped and wasn't called because he's so damn big lol. I also have my doubts about Paul George's 3 foul.

    How does nobody have the video for this online? I can't possibly catch every flop by a Heat player in any game.
