PLAYERS: LeBron JamesDavid Stern
TEAMS: Miami Heat
LeBron James is the best player on the planet and there shouldn’t be much debate about that. With that being said, he is one of the best floppers in the NBA. Probably hard habit to kick, when you have done it for so long. He lied about not flopping before and we revealed a 7 min video of his most egregious flops. I am sure he will act like this didn’t happen last night. Oscar worthy performance and it almost got Nate Robinson charged with a flagrant foul, but the refs for once did the right thing, saw James was acting and reversed the call. He should get fined, but David Stern won’t fine the King.

Posterizing is a thing now

Bulls-Heat Preview

Dwyane Wade is limping around in obvious pain. LeBron James' shooting percentage is down. Shane Battier and Ray Allen have struggled to get anything going from 3-point range.
