Lance Stephenson fined for LeBron James style flop

Published Add your comment

Lance Stephenson has been fined $5000 by the NBA for a comical flop in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night.

The point guard had an excellent game in the Pacers loss to the Miami Heat in Indiana but he did his best to ruin in the 3rd quarter of the game.

With 3 minutes and 37 seconds left to go in the quarter, Stephenson found himself on the wrong side of LeBron James defensively as the former MVP was driving. So the 23-year decided to create contact and throw himself to the ground where he decided to lie down for a while and have a bit of a nap.

Unsurprisingly however, Joey Crawford - arguably one of the worst officials in the history of sport - gave the foul on LeBron.

Is it worse than his flop in the Finals vs the Heat last year? Almost certainly.
