    Default "LeBroning" Officially a thing!

    From Yahoo.com

    http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dish...ggerated-flops

    Nice to know that flopping has officially become called "LeBroning". I'm sure we can get some mileage from this. Also the video in the link has some great flops of LeBron against the Pacers. Classic stuff.

    I mean I use to call him out on it as much as anyone else, but he really has cooled down his antics. No doubt Lance flops more now.

    As amazing as LeBron is when he just focuses on being a great basketball player, he has absolutely brought every bit of the vitriol onto himself with his attitude and behavior. This is good humor.

    This is awesome!

    I really hope this catches fire, it can ONLY serve to force the NBA to stop the double standard where LeFlop is concerned.

    Reading the 'Heat Fans' reaction to this on Twitter is hilarious.

    No he doesn't.

    He flops, I won't deny it. But to say he does it more than LeBron is ludicrous.

    Even if someone does a video of a flop from this season, it doesn't prove or disprove whether or not Lance flops more.

    There has been discussions about Lance flopping, but what Lance does is neither here nor there when talking about LeBron. Flopping in general for any player is ridiculous. Flopping by the best player on Earth is even more ridiculous.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Lance played in 78 games last year.

    compare the number of Lebron flops to the number of Lance flops. Google image searches of "Lebron flop 2013" or "Lebron flop gif 2013" gives dozens. I found one video of a Lance flop, involving Dwight Howard.

    That's cause it's the regular season. LeBron has always saved his best (and frequent) flopping for the playoffs. Every basketball fan knows that!

    Players will flop, throw elbows, complain to the refs, or untie their opponent's shoelaces if it legal and they think it will get them a competitive advantage. I don't really begrudge anyone for those things, especially when they are relatively difficult to identify and evaluate. At this point, Lance's flops are still charming, as he is committed 100% to exhibiting balletic grace with them. Bron's OTOH are much more purposeful and calculated. But let's not pretend that opposing fans don't recognize what Lance is doing; it's just closer to antics than playmaking at the moment.

    How is LeBron flopping more ridiculous than any other Earthling that flops?

    Let me see your record of what NBA games you watch both online & on TV, completed with a tally of exactly how many times LeBron has flopped vs. exactly how many times Lance has flopped.

    I'm not up for the comparison saying Lance is more egregious than LeBron, mainly because LeBron doesn't NEED to do it at all.

    That said, here's what I think when I see Lance hit the floor:

    Seems like there are some people here who are getting uppity about Lebron being made fun of.

    "Just pointing out Lance does it too" yeah ok you wouldn't need to point that out if you weren't being so uppity about Lebron being made fun of.
    We aren't the only fanbase that makes fun of Lebron's flopping. All those other teams have one of those guys too. The "he without sin" thing is self-righteous at best. This isn't damnation, is just a little ribbing for someone who totally deserves it for the ridiculous thing he does.

    I can read. Two words for you: sample size.


    Dude has flopped for years, and what he's done or not done in the last month or two doesn't change that a bit.
