Miami Heat NBA’s Biggest Floppers, LeBron James Defends Illegal Move
At first, when the NBA decided to make the act of flopping illegal, the reaction was that it would eliminate players from manipulating the officials. However, players across the league continue to flail at times when their is hardly a foul.
Perhaps the most annoying part of a game, referees are forced to make a judgement call on whether or not said player was indeed harmed or if it was just a feeble attempt to get a foul call. Leave it to the Miami Heat to defend such a bogus ploy for an advantage.
That’s right, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will never admit to being floppers, but they condone the act every time they are asked about it. Wade went as far to say that, “We would have no NBA possibly if they got rid of all the flopping.” That’s no surprise considering that Wade complains to an official every time he goes down and doesn’t get a call in his favor.
Wade has been a crybaby since day one, so it’s James’ comments that should surprise and anger any NBA fan with an ounce of integrity. James is the MVP of the league, which means he has a responsibility to nix cheating rather than condone it like he has.
Every team has fallen victim to the Heat floppers, but both the Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers have had issues with the officials believing the Heat players and their flops. It has been tough for LeBron to shed the nationwide critics and spearheading a team of floppers isn’t the way to get back into good graces with the fans.
