LeBron James got mocked for flopping, then called himself a football player. After the Cleveland Cavaliers' 126-91 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday, James said Draymond Green's "shoulder hit me in the face," adding that it happened so fast that he didn't even realize who hit him at first. He did not say anything at all about Green making fun of him, but he didn't have to.

In case you missed the play:
Lots of people will see James' quote and laugh. After all, fans at Oracle Arena chanted "FLOP-PER" during the replay review. James did get hit in the face, though, and that had to hurt, even if he might have embellished his reaction to get the officials' attention.
