    I'm not sure if this is a serious post, but Lebron is more often than not on his feet when he gets fouled. Obviously there are a few examples of this not happening - but his strength and ability to absorb contact after picking up his dribble is the reason why he is such a scary offensive weapon. Very few other players would be able to score through running into the Tyson Chandlers of the league.

    If we are going to hack at floppers, lets at least start by being objective about the situation. James Harden & Manu Ginobili are hardcore floppers. Griffin, CP, Wade, Westbrook etc play up foul, but it isn't completely make believe.

    Flopping is one of the few areas in which I will give Kobe any recognition. I like the fact that he doesn't do it. I haven't seen Durant do it, and I haven't seen LBJ do it that often. Skill>flopping.
