LeBron James Flop Video

22 May

Remember when the coach of the Pacers called out LeBron and the Heat as the worst floppers in the league?  And how, despite the fact that this shit is nearly universally acknowledged to be stone-cold fact, that same coach was fined by the ridiculous David Stern for telling the truth?

Well…not that we need any more evidence, but some dude has posted a youtube tribute of LeBron’s most egregious and embarrassing flops and set that shit to music.  Chris Bosh even makes a guest appearance.  Thanks to Jordan Crawford (Wizards?) for the heads-up.  Enjoy:

It’s pretty easy to make a case for LeBron’s MVP award this year if you look at the stats.

But, as LeBron James’ entire career has demonstrated, it’s not just about the stats.  Let’s look at some of the other top performers around the league and add a little context to the discussion:

Chris Paul – he dragged the sorry-ass LA Clippers to the playoffs in his first year on the team, despite a roster full of nobodies.  In 2011, the Clippers were shittier than the Golden State Warriors.

Derrick Rose – after he went down with a torn ACL, the Bulls went from beating the living hell out of the 76ers in the playoffs to having no chance in hell of beating the 76ers in the playoffs.  He’s a pretty valuable guy.  Oh yeah, and his team had the league’s best record during the regular season.  Better than the Heat.  How many MVP votes did Derrick Rose receive?  Exactly 1. And it was a third-place vote.  LBJ received 85 first-place votes.  So, out of all the sports jerks that vote on this shit, only one thought that Derrick Rose was good enough to get even a third place vote.  WTF?

Kevin Durant – he’s on the Oklahoma City Thunder.  He’s the league’s leading scorer.  And, unlike some other MVP candidates,  he can actually make free throws.

But yeah – LeBron James.  MVP.
