It was bush league but I'm not gonna jump on him about it... It didnt' bother me. Wake is not a flopper.

I think they had a better shot had the Lebron seen Chalmers. Actually I think he did but then Wade ran into is line of sight so he kicked it to him insted of Chalmers.

I would have done the exact same thing. I'd rather be a winner and a flopper than a loser.

But that's cheating, you wouldn't have earned it.

Not it's not. Perfectly legal.

And besides, even if it was against the rules - if it leads to a championships it was worth it. Nobody cares about noble losers - only winners.

The Spartans punished their students not for cheating or stealing - but for getting caught.

Eh, as a fan we don't have to be that black and white though. Someone can be a winner and we can objectively look at HOW they won, not just the end result of winning.

It's like steroids in baseball to some extent, there was not rule against what players were using in the 90s, but in the eyes of fans, and HOF voters, it taints their accomplishments. Now, flopping is certainly not the same as injecting or consuming drugs to boost your performance, but it is the same in the sense as people can look back on their accomplishments with a raised eye brow.

I feel like what you are doing is referred to as a false dichotomy
