Is LeBron James the biggest flopper and whiner in the NBA
Not by a long shot, on either count. The vast majority of the top players in the NBA whine and I would imagine a lot of the other players do, too.
I know, I know, you can find a few exceptions, but not many and I think this is true for a couple of reasons. One, the NBA is a star friendly league and they learn to expect calls. Secondly, officiating is inconsistent from game to game, which is very difficult as a player because that what you need from the refs. I don mind being hit, as long as I can hit back.
As for Lebron and whining, one of his teammates, Mario Chalmers, is much worse than he is. Chalmers isn a marquee player but try to watch him when he plays. I saw him play in person last year and it was comical, really.
As for flopping, I don think Lebron is the biggest flopper, either, and I don have one person in mind that is worse, but if pressed I would probably go with Manu Ginobli.
And I agree with the assertion that Lebron almost (almost) has a need to moncler women jackets cyber monday flop. The league has never seen someone so strong, so fast, and so athletic in one package and when he drives""normal"" guards and small forwards bounce off of him.
I think most of the top players exaggerate the effects of contact to draw fouls and I blame the league and the refs for allowing it to get to the point that it has. I loathe flopping. Absolutely detest it. I hate it as a spectator and I hate cheap moncler women jackets cyber monday it as a player. People talk about it being ""intelligent basketball"" and I while I see the merits of that argument, I just think it takes away from the purity of the game. The problem is, again, that you have to have consistent officiating to seriously curb flopping. (And as I am typing this Chalmers takes a dive).
One last thought on flopping. I don think Lebron popularized flopping in the NBA. The league instituted a rule to curb flopping before he even graduated high school.
It might sound like I am a Lebron fan because I am deflecting some of the attention from him. I am not. I don hate him, but I don love him; I am from the Jordan generation. This is a terrible, rambling answer, but my only real bias is against flopping.
No way. But I actually think moncler women jackets online for sale cyber monday LeBron has to flop sometimes. He is so big, so fast, and so strong that fouls don look like fouls on him. This is purely anecdotal, but while watching game 4 of the ECF last night, I saw 3 4 James cheap moncler women jackets outlet cyber monday drives where he was clearly hit across the arm, but didn flinch/move. He is just so strong that contact doesn look like contact because it doesn affect him. He likely has to embellish contact in order for refs to notice.
As for the biggest complainer, you can really cite every NBA player. Russell Westbrook comes to mind moncler women jackets sale cyber monday though.
I wouldn say he the biggest. He just gets a lot of crap for it because he supposed to be the best player in the world and when you flop and complain like he does, well it gets noticed by a lot of people. But he does flop and complain a lot which is weird because he gets practically every call anyway.
Edit: I do believe that LeBron wasn the first flopper but he definitely popularized flopping in the NBA. (continue)
