Thread: Lance's "Flop" - $5,000

  1. #1

    Default Lance's "Flop" - $5,000

    Am I the only one outraged by this?

    From the footage I've seen, Klay Thompson makes no attempt to rebound -- choosing to face guard and 2-hand shove Lance to the ground as he's going towards the bucket. Sure, Lance has been known to embellish contact, but did they watch the game at all? Numerous players were hitting the court during the game due to the floor conditions.

    Not my money, but I'd be irked if I were Lance.




    That said, I'm sure he's gotten away with a few as well. Maybe it's a make-up flop call?

    …can we just admit a Pacers player flopped?

    The floor was slippery all night but in no way did Lance slip. His feet went from stable to up in the air as he hit the ground as if hit by a cannonball in the chest.

    If I am trying to be objective...Lance flops a lot. He had one fairly comical flop against the Clippers the other night when Darren Collison may have poked him with his forearm and Lance launched himself backward about 5 feet. Like 160 pound Darren Collison could shove a truck like Lance with his forearm

    Lance flops A LOT. Admit it. I do think he's getting targeted, but whatever, doesn't mean he's not flopping every game.

    Can't say if he flopped or not without a video of the play.

    He absolutely flops and embellishes at times. Will not deny.

    Lance flops all the time... but has Lebron ever received one of these fines?

    I remember that, in real time I thought he just slipped, I wasn't exactly looking very closely. Honestly that wasn't his worst flop of the night. When he ran into Curry, just before staring him down, he flopped big time.

    Yes, against us. On that West double flop last year in the playoffs.

    Lance just needs to take it out of his game unless he's actually getting fouled.

    Aren't most Miami games on a very public stage? Hell half their games are on national television.

    ya but cant u basically call this at anytime the nba wants. theres a helluva lotta flopping that goes on in the nba and lance has been tagged for this twice. I admit lance flops but they better call this fine even throughtout the nba.

    esp come playoff time. if lance is flopping call it... but I hope they hold the same standards for everyone. if LeBron don't have one flop fine then its a crock im far as im concerned. esp considering the ice rink the pacers played on last nite.

    I can't believe that halfway through the season people are actually upset that Lance was tagged for flopping for the second time. He flops multiple times every game lol

    This is the problem. You are saying before anything has happened that if Lebron doesn't have a fine for a flop that he hasn't committed yet, it's a crock.

    That, my friend, is exactly what everyone is accusing the NBA of with Lance. TARGETING.

    In other news, Mario Chalmers became the first Heat player this season to receive a flop warning.

    Still waiting for the warning on Reggie Evans for his flop when Brooklyn was in town last month....

    No it's not. Lebron actually flops a lot. At this point it's statistically impossible for him to have not at least gotten a warning if the rule was applied equally.

    But it's not. So Paul George won't get one, but Lance will. Lebron won't get one, but Mario will.

    Definitely a flop by Lance, but there's something wrong with the rules themselves if you have two super muscular guys in Lance and LeBron that feel they're not gonna get fair treatment unless they sell the contact. If they don't, the smaller player is gonna get the benefit of the call every time.

    Lance has been "crying wolf" all season. Hopefully getting slapped with fines makes him shape up.

    Ultimately, I don't care about who else gets or doesn't get slapped with the fine. All I know is that Lance has been egregious about it and it needs to stop.

    I really wish that Lance would stop flopping. It's the only part of his game that I don't like.
