LeBron’s superior (or average in the 80s if you ask Dennis Rodman) athletic skills and ability to dominate the game of basketball is a combination of God given talent (or call him a freak of nature if you are an Atheist or Agnostic), hard work and a burning desire to be the best. Credit should also be given to his mentors and coaches in particular his high school coach Dru Joyce II.
If you want to hear more about the importance of Coach Dru then you can watch the exceptional documentary “More Than A Game” but there’s an exceptional aspect of LeBron’s game that has divided basketball fans more than Kanye’s “Yeezus” album has divided hip hop fans. That exceptional element is the King’s ability to flop better than M. Night Shyamalan (the Will Smith father and son film “After Earth” had a production budget of $130 million and has made less than $50 million as it exits theaters – I guess those horrible After Earth/NBA Playoff mashups didn’t help).
The man responsible for LeBron’s ability to flop and “get up and bitch at the ref” is Coach Frank Calhoun. Check out the video above created by The Mike Polk Jr Show and learn more about the Art of Flopping.
