It’s safe to say, that most individuals had judgements on the atrocious flop LeBron James acted out on a Tyson Chandler screen. It was that Oscar worthy performance that garnered Tyson a flagrant foul during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Round-one Knicks-Heat matchup.
My own reaction on twitter “Amare’s braids are more flagrant than that shit.”
Here is a GIF of the flop, if someone would like to revisit the act in question.
I digress, Chicago Bulls’ point guard, John Lucas III, had a few choice words for LeBron’s theatrics:
The reason it caught Lucas’ attention was because James set an equally punishing screen on Lucas on April 19 in Miami. No foul was called on the screen, but the 5-11, 165-pound Lucas had to be kept from going after the 6-8, 250-pound James. Lucas and James — who after the game said “I knew I had him” — both received technicals, which prompted James to yell “For what?”
“I thought he threw his left shoulder into me a little bit, and then I look up and Tyson Chandler set a clean screen on him, and he took it like he just got shot,” Lucas said Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “You got to get back up.
Watch that GIF a few times, and LeBron does appear as if he just took a shot. Perhaps, movie executives could call him in for an audition sometime.
