LeBron James adds a new weapon to his basketball arsenal every offseason, it appears this previous year that the NBA superstar added flopping. Where did he learn this new skill? Well 71-year-old flopping coach Frank Calhoun claims he is the man responsible for LeBron’s new intentional falling. Calhoun boasts that he invented flopping and was the first player to ever flop in a professional basketball game when he did flamboyantly fell in a 1962 Trumbull County Generals game of the Ohio Valley Basketball Association.
Despite criticism, Calhoun insists that “Flopping is an artform.” Frank Calhoun enhanced LeBron’s game at the Flop-Like-A-Pro Basketball Camp. Calhoun became emotional when describing LeBron’s crowning flopping achievement, “I remember one time LeBron was really feeling it. It was during a pregame when they were shooting around. He just fell to the ground for no reason at all. Hell the refs saw it and he called a double technical on the Milwaukee Bucks bench.”

But the King’s diving prowess — which he not only admits to but also supports — goes beyond basketball. James’ affinity for falling when barely touched apparently extends to his off-court life as well.

The Miami Heat have defeated the San Antonio Spurs 103-100 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
Down by 10 points heading into the 4th quarter, LeBron James realized it was time to put the team on his back and carry the Heat to victory. James got fouled early in the fourth, and on the play lost his headband. This seemed to ignite the King as he went off right after that. Will we see the...

The Miami Heat were down three with one last shot at tying the game. LeBron James bricked a three, but the rebound eventually found its way to Ray Allen. Allen stepped back over the three point arc and drilled perhaps the most clutch three of his career with five seconds left in the game. Game 6 is headed to OT.
