LeBron Sees Flopping as Effective Strategy
Miami HEAT forward LeBron James vehemently denies he’s a flopper but openly recognizes it as an effective strategy.
“Some guys have been doing it for years, just trying to get an advantage,” James said Monday in the lead-up to Tuesday’s Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. “Any way you can get an advantage over the opponent to help your team win, so be it.”
No Heat players were officially warned or fined for flopping during the regular season or in the playoffs.
“It happens,” Wade said. “We would have no NBA possibly if they got rid of all the flopping.”
