Chalmers is one of the most egregious floppers in the league. He'll be attacking the basket from the left side and I just can call it out to a friend "watch this, he's going to wait for a shred of contact, then shoot a leaner while flopping as if he was pushed, and probably get an and-1". It's obvious.
Wade is almost a flopping master, he's seriously very, very good at it. Sometimes he fools me, even though I'm expecting him to do it.
LeBron doesn't flop as often as those two but his flops are definitely going up in frequency, and him being so big, aside of shameful, makes it obvious, I can literally always
notice them on live action.
Bosh flops too, and so does Haslem and Battier. It's pretty much the whole team.
Flopping aside, Miami deserved to win this game. Came out with sustained energy, didn't get caught up in the moment when they were down, played very good D and moved the ball on offense.
Bosh and Wade both looked better, especially Wade. Role players predictably did better at home, and LeBron was LeBron, effective and productive.
Pacers kinda choked.. Their O was completely stagnant, the turnovers reminded me of us trying to play the Princeton offense with Mike Brown
George failed to attack the rim the whole game, even with RAY ALLEN guarding him. Hibbert made some nice moves and contested a few shots but other than that he played a bad game. West wasn't getting in position fast enough, settled several times.
Indiana needs another year or so before they can pull it together. They need to avoid lapses like this, especially on offense.
