LeBron still seems willing to pay the cost to "get the advantage."
Days after getting fined for flopping, James flopped again in Game 6 against Indiana and helped draw a foul on Paul George. During the third quarter, the four-time MVP fought through a screen from Pacers center Roy Hibbert to stay with George. The emerging Indiana star slightly extended his arm against James' chest. That's when LeBron jerked his head back as if he was just hit in the face and fell down.
The official called an offensive foul and George was visibly frustrated.
LeBron was recently fined $5,000 for violating the NBA's anti-flopping policy in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. He had contributed to a rare double-flop with Indiana's David West.
According to the NBA's anti-flopping policy for the playoffs, a second violation results in a $10,000 fine.
Earlier in the series, James told reporters that flopping is "not even a bad thing" and said players who do so are "just trying to get the advantage." Earlier in the playoffs, LeBron said he doesn't flop.
This video contradicts that claim.
