Brandon Armstrong, aka @BdotAdot5, came out with a new skit on his Twitter account on Sunday, and it’s phenomenal. In response to LeBron James’ obvious flop following teammate Tristan Thompson’s elbow grazing him in the face, Armstrong recreated the scene and embellished with a bit of extra emphasis.

This is the play in which the refs almost got it really wrong by first issuing a technical on DeMarre Carroll. Only after viewing the play on replay did they get it right, but in reality James should have been penalized for flopping as well.
If you watch the original play in slow motion, James doesn’t actually start his move backwards until after he’d been grazed by Thompson. Crafty vet that he is, he wanted to get the most out of the ridiculously small amount of contact that actually occurred.
This video is a perfect response, and we hope it made you laugh as much as we did.
