If flopping is pathetic, the Spurs should be one of the most pathetic teams in the league. Manu is the kings of the flop. Or what about Robert Horry when he was on the team? Parker has never been afraid of embellishment or two himself. Instead the Spurs are praised for their genius, their fundamental basketball, their team building.
And most of the greatest basketball players are known for bending the rules or taking advantage of them. Jordan and Reggie were notorious for dirty tricks. Grabbing jersey's, hooks, elbows, push offs. These were outright fouls if the refs saw them or called them. But the refs didn't, so they would keep using them.
Why is it such a crime that Lebron just tells the truth?
