Okay, so we all know how obnoxious the Miami Heat‘s superstar LeBron James can be on the court, right? The guy could be the biggest crybaby and he whines about not getting a call more than anyone in sports. What better way to mock the “King” than to make a video regarding his over-usage of flopping.
Some high school kids took to Vine to take a little jab at the one who calls himself King James. Let’s take a look at how accurate this hilarious Vine really is.
Okay, so that may look a bit dramatic, right? LeBron isn’t that bad when it comes to flopping, but I would beg to differ. Let’s take a look at a few GIFs of LeBron’s most famous — or infamous — flops. Enjoy.
This one is the “I’m going to flop for no good reason” flop:
Oh, what about a late reaction flop:
Okay, this might be my favorite:
So now you can see that his flops aren’t all so graceful. These are some of the few examples of King James’ many flops. The guy is a great athlete and one of the best basketball players of our time, but he needs to cut this part of his game out or he will never be taken seriously by opponents.
No one will ever believe that a 6-foot9, 250-pound man can dramatically fall over with a hand tap on his body. No, LeBron, just stop it. You are making a mockery of the game. If the NBA didn’t fine players for flopping, that would become an option now in basketball video games — oh wait, it still is.
Well played, LeBroning specialists. Well played.
