exactly. I mean we have posters in here claiming the heat are the only ones who do it
I mean if you are dumb enough to think that than you obviously have never watched a celtics, spurs, lakers or hell the worst are the clippers
griffin and chris paul are the 2 worst floppers in the league
hell lebron/heat haters let me know when you see lebron or anyone on the heat do this
I'm sure Cousins will receive a suspension.
LORD FORGIVE ME FOR THE GOON DADDY IS COMING OUT TONIGHT
Just my opinion, think they are in the same realm with some of their antics
Ohhh let's doooo it
ooorrrannngeeee and bluuueee it
Noway can you tell me that leaving as a free agent is equal to the crap dwight pulled his last year with the magic
didn't he threaten to not play unless the traded him? He got his coach fired, called all his teammates pretty much piles of dogcrap and held the organization hostage for almost 2 years with his unwillingness to go anywhere but NJ
Yes, more reasons to not watch that botched surgery of a sport the NBA has become.
The actions are not similar but the principle is. They got caught up in being full of themselves.
Everyone does the acting crap but Lebron and Wade complain more then anyone in the league. It's a joke
I've seen Wade not come back on D because he is complaining about a call

Lebron straight up lowered his shoulder and Emmitt Smithed Kirk Hinrich. The dudes main part of his game is bulldozing people and creating contact. I think it's bs for him to ever complain about fouls. Lebron is great though but shut up man.
you clearly have never seen blake griffin, either gasol brother, ginobili or paul pierce play a single basketball game if you typed the above line
Just pointing out that Dwight was just as much of a difference maker, back then.
The Clippers, especially CP3, got everybody beat in flopping.
Agree. Dwight was averaging 30 and 15 in those playoffs. He's been the best big man in the league for 5 years.
I've had the NBA ticket for two years, probably seen more games then most people.
I mean flopping has become part of the game, basically the whole league does that. Not my beef with the Heat
That video illustrates why I hate the heat. In the 90s Pansy play like that got you knocked out. Imagine flopping on oakley or rodman or ewing...they'd knock you out and make you fall for real.

I agree. I'm out here in LA and watch a lot of the clippers and lakers. the clippers flop a lot but Kobe cries foul everytime he shoots and doesn't make it. He's a great player but I get so tired of his complaining with the calls. All the players do it. I don't see lebron griping that much when I watch him.
Then uve been watching with a sock over your eyes if u are bothered so much by the heat complaining but all those I mentioned don't bother you
So you want to penalize the heat for playing in a league that outlaws the type of play the 90's NBA teams were infamous for?
So why don't you hate all NBA teams now since they all play in the same league and play the exact same way
Do you hate the NFL now because back in the 80's and early 90's the QB's could get demolished and now they overprotect the QB's. Or that safeties like Ronnie Lott couldn't destroy receivers coming across the middle like he used to
Sports evolve, and when they do the players have to as well or else they will be broke from fines
I said Lebron and Wade are the worst with it, the guys you listed are also bad. JMO
Well, I never said why I disliked Lebron so much, and I suppose "the decision" is part of it. I do have a bias, I won't disagree with that, but I just really don't like the guy. I don't like his lower the shoulder and drive to the lane style of play. I don't like his ridiculous comments, to include his comments after the Heat lost in the finals. I don't like how his entire persona seems created, and fake. I don't like how he whines anytime he drives the lane, there is any contact, and God forbid the refs don't blow the whistle (Dwight was just as big a cry baby). Finally, I don't like the way the guy is worshiped in the media.
The proverbial nail in the coffin for me was the Eastern Finals in 09. Orlando dominated that series, and it should of ended in five, and could have easily been a sweep. That was all depsite the absurd calls that Lebron got in every game (They called a foul on Courtney Lee when he had his back to Lebron, and was two feet away from him), and all anyone talked about was Lebron. Anytime Lebron missed a shot, he would start whining about a foul. I just don't like the guy. It's not as cut and dry to me as "he was a free agent". I think he's arrogant, completely contrived, and gets the benefit of a league that wants to prop him up, and then dares to complain anytime they don't give him a whistle. He is immensely talented, and is quite possibly the best athlete to ever play basketball, but I can't stand him.
I hear ya, and the point about Michael is completely valid. I worshiped Jordan as a kid. Posters on the wall, the whole nine yards. As an adult, it's easy for me to look at Jordan now and kind of cringe at his HOF acceptance speech, and the numerous reports about how much of an ass he is, but because of how much I loved the guy as a kid, I just can't be mad at him. You're right that most super stars are arrogant, but Lebron just reminds me so much of ARod. He's an immense talent, and he makes a ton of money, and he wants everyone to believe how great he is, but he just can't get out of his own way. It's like that with ARod. He tried for years to be baseball's poster boy, and be the perfect clean cut star, and then he always said or did something stupid to show his true colors. That's how I view Lebron.
This basketball is not an evolution. It's a crap stain on a once great sport. This heat team would get demolished if the NBA didn't become guard friendly and punish big guys for protecting their paint. Oh look, wade gets more free throws for falling like a girl.
A lot better. If you ranked the top 10 players in that series, number 1 would be Lebron, but the next probably 5 or 6 players would've been on Orlando. That was a good team in 09. Man that was fun to watch.
This....so much this. The guys entire game is predicated on physical superiority over everyone else, and then he has the nerve to cry when he doesn't get a call. Drives me insane.
It was too good. Otis Smith couldn't stand it so he blew it up.
