Video: LeBron helps sell flagrant foul on Tyson Chandler

That is a foul. A hard playoff foul. Tyson Chandler leans in and sets a moving screen into LeBron James‘ back.

But apparently LeBron has been spending more time with the players in Liverpool than we thought, because he sells that like a soccer flop. It was initially called a Flagrant 2 (with automatic ejection), was downgraded to a Flagrant 1 and if it got downgraded again I would not be shocked.

This was the black mark on an otherwise spectacular game from LeBron, he was a force of nature that led the Heat to a blowout win over the Knicks. That kind of win that makes you wonder if the Knicks can win more than one game.

But this call helped, and there were others like it as the refs did not love the Knicks Saturday. But that is not why the Knicks lost.
