From the creator of the video:
This video was not made to malicious disrespect the Heat and their fans. It was made disrespect the fanatical idolizing fans who attack anyone that didn’t agree with the Finals. I’m just being their voice. We are not HATERS! We have a right to disagree like everyone else and not be attacked by fanatical idolizing fans… I am not a fan of a certain team. I’m a fan of the NBA. I’ve been watching it since 1990. I have no favorite team today because players don’t care about the cities they play for. They only care about the money and rings. The state that the NBA is in is embarrassing. Some of you weren’t old enough or born yet to understand the horrible, less competitive, changes it’s taking. I think Lebron, Wade, Kobe, Chris Paul, Carmelo, KD, Bosh, Rose, D.William, D.Howard, etc. are some of the greatest players in the league. The Miami Heat are too talented to have to whine for calls on every transition, flop, and receive special treatment. This is k!lling the sport… The Miami Heat are now the representatives of the NBA, I’ll give them and other players the respect they deserve when I see them play hard, honest basketball again.
Furthermore, the reason why I named most if these staggers and falls FLOPS is because having individual names would be very excessive. A flop is when a player tries to or overreacts to physical contact, whether they fall completely down or staggers, just to obtain an Offensive or Defensive foul on their opponent. Whether they get the call or not doesn’t authenticate it as a flop. You are giving the flop too much authenticity as a NBA technique when its a dirty sneaky move that takes away from the game. Players are doing it so much right now that we don’t know if its intentional or unintentional…
UPDATE: Idolizes are literally attacking me in my inbox! Funny, I posted this video a few days after the Finals which was a few months ago. The Finals are over! It seems you haven’t gotten over the fact that not everyone agrees with the Finals outcome. Everyone has the right to feel the way they want without being attacked. You are proving why I made this video in the first place. You are showing hatred by attacking me with your idolatry behavior
