Nate Robinson says LeBron James is “good at acting”

NBA

Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson took verbal jabs aimed at LeBron James following the Bulls Game 3 loss on Friday night. James and Bulls center Nazr Mohammed got tied up in the second quarter which led to a technical foul on James. Mohammed took exception to the foul and shoved James down to the floor and was ejected soon thereafter.

Robinson reacted to LeBron falling to the floor by saying, “You see LeBron in a lot of commercials.” Robinson added that James was “a good actor,” insinuating James flopped on the Mohammed shove.

Tempers were running high again during Game 3. Earlier in the game, Joakim Noah received a technical foul for shoving Chris “Birdman” Andersen after Anderson fouled Robinson.

James dropped on Robinsons face 6 stiches when he was out of bounds.should  have called  number 2 flagrant on the actress then. Then other game both should removed but not for the whinner. No Class and gets little respect from the majority. Sure no where  near MJ Class

I haven't seen that bad of an acting job since space jam.

Here's a question. If Mohammed gets ejected because James fell down (err... FLOPPED) when he was pushed, shouldn't James have been ejected because he pulled Mohammed down to the floor? Where exactly is the difference here (except for the fact that James practically threw himself to the floor while Mohammed had no chance to save his fall)? Why does the Heat get a different set of rules?

I'm a Bulls fan, but I couldn't agree more. Lebron is huge, and if someone as small as Nate touches him he throws his head back and exaggerates body contact. He is on the floor way to much for his size.  MJ NEVER acted like this.

So is Robinson.  He is impersonating and NBA star.  He does all the chest pumping and playing to the crowd, but that's about it.  Sorry Bulls fans, but  y'all know where this series is going.  If you couldn't beat the Sixers last year without Rose, you think you can do it with LESS talent on the floor?  Child, please!

 @nard100 uhhh they beat the nets with less talent on the floor then?...so last years team that couldn't beat an 8 seed is less talented then the team that beat the 4 seeded nets and put up a decent fight against the heat. how are they less talented this years team is way better without rose then last years team

Thibs and company are obviously very bitter that their ploy to get James ejected failed so hard.
