Watch LeBron James Mocked For Flopping to Sell a Foul (Video)
Hard foul or fake flop? That was the question Monday night during the Golden State Warriors/ Cleveland Cavaliers game when LeBron James took a dramatic fall to the floor after being fouled by rival Draymond Green.
James had the ball and was making a quick transition break when, mid-court, Green reached in to make a steal and they collided. Thrown backwards, James dropped.
The TNT color commentator noted, “This wasn’t that hard of a foul; it’s not going to end the world…. That’s just a regular foul.”
Seasoned announcer Marv Albert asked, “You’re indicating that LeBron may be play acting a little bit?”
Green made his opinion of that move known while referees reviewed the play — he walked over to the floor seats on the Warriors’ side of the arena and mocked James by flailing his arms around.
Check out the video above and decide for yourself.
The refs did call a flagrant foul, awarding James two free throws and the Cavs the ball.
The Cavaliers and Warriors have a history of clashes on the court, the most notable during last year’s Finals when Green swiped up at James’ groin area as James stepped over him. Green was suspended for the following game, and the Cavs went on to win three straight games and the championship.
