LeBron James becomes subject of mocking viral craze

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has many, many redeeming qualities. As arguably the greatest player ever to grace a court, the small forward boasts an admirable skill-set that is simply unrivalled across the NBA.

Despite all of his positives, however, the four-time MVP does occasionally attract unwanted attention for the apparent ease with which he can exaggerate contact on the court - something generally known around the league as 'flopping'.

And it would appear that the people of the internet have begun to poke a little fun at the 29-year-old, with a series of videos and vines in which people appear to take LeBron's lead and tumble to the ground in hilarious fashion after receiving little contact.

According to USA Today Sports, this is something that began a little while ago but only appears to be taking off as a viral craze more recently.

One of the amusing mocking videos - in which a man can be seen above hitting the floor more than once after deliberately initiating contact with apparent strangers -  can be seen above, with thanks to USA Today Sports and Terrell Gayhart.

Do you think this is fair? Have you seen any of these funny videos? Let us know below...
