GIF: LeBron James flops, and then David West flops off his flop
LeBron James says he doesn't flop. But he also says flopping is kind of OK. A play in Game 4 kind of sums those two things up.
Two LeBron James quotes to share after you meditate on the GIF for a minute:
1) “I don’t need to flop,” LeBron said back during the Bulls series. “I play an aggressive game. I don’t flop. I’ve never been one of those guys.”
2) "It's year one, so you're not just going to go cold turkey," James said. "Guys have been accustomed to doing it for years, and it's not even a bad thing. You're just trying to get the advantage. Any way you can get the advantage over an opponent to help your team win, then so be it."
During Game 4, Pacer fans gleefully chanted "He's a flop-per!" every time LeBron stepped to the free throw line. Note: They did not chant that when David West or Lance Stephenson went to the free throw line.
