Beyond The Buzzer:
The NBA has fined LeBron James, David West and Lance Stephenson $5,000 for their flopping in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The League has also upgraded David West’s foul on Dwayne Wade as he drove to the basket on a fast break in the fourth quarter from a common foul to a Flagrant 1.
Despite LeBron recently saying that he doesn’t flop and has ‘never been one of those guys’, him and David West are being fined for their part in this double flop that took place late in the fourth quarter.
Pacers guard, Lance Stephenson, is being fined because of his obvious attempt to draw a foul on Ray Allen after he ran back on defense following a made basket.
This is Miami’s first flopping violation of the regular season or post-season.

LeBron James made a few big plays in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals but they were not enough to get by the Indiana Pacers.
James left the game after fouling out with 56 seconds to go and the game still within reach.

Click on photo to read more about an internship with LeBron
I’m really not sure what this internship could lead to, but it would be pretty sweet to work for a LeBron owned entity. I highly doubt that you’d ever even see LeBron, but the idea is still pretty sweet. If you think about all the professional athletes out there LeBron would be up there for internships.
