Damn straight he did and it was a veteran move to win the game. As much as I love Kawhi for what he has done for Toronto, we all know Kawhi pushes off like a mofo with his robot arm. If Kawhi is going to extend that robot arm, Hardens smart enough to sell the foul. The people complaining are all hypocrites if you are a fan of LeBron and say when LeBron does it hes just selling the foul. Same with Lowry. If you have a chance to win the game by selling a contact, you would be dumb as rocks if you dont want to do it.
It was the smart play, but seriously depressing to watch
It was smart because the refs are dumb. Are we going to applaud Lebron for his weak ass flop because it was smart?
I meant we should be getting mad at the refs, not the flopper. It only works because they call it. Id never applaud flopping either way
People were loving Smarts flops on Harden that won them the game. Kawhi extended the arm, Harden sold the contact, literally every veteran player would do the same thing.
But no player, veteran or otherwise, does it as much as Harden. It’s why so many people loathe his games It’s also why he often struggles in the postseason. Fouls aren’t called the same way.
He fucking slapped his arm the entire way to the basket THEN FLOPPED. bitchass refs.
Are you denying that Kawhi actually extended the arm tho? In that situation I completely agree if should be a play on bc we see that type of contact from both offensive and defensive player all the time on final plays, but it’s not like there wasn’t a
But when cp3 does it it’s called smart basketball and veteran leadership
Wily, crafty vet move
You too smart for them dumb it down a bit, plz.
Me when Kyle Lowry foul baits and flops: "High BBIQ player" Me when Trae Young foul baits and flops: "Ugly piece of shit"
Like how you acknowledge and own your bias The praising of Lowrys BBIQ when he flops all over the fuckin place is annoying. Lowry is one of those players r/nba universally likes and always claim is underappreciated so I guess that explains why he gets pr
Every time he flops someone writes his name down on a presidential ballot. So unfair
Who tf says this.
"CP3 flops and he gets a Nobel prize. Harden flops and he gets castrated" I swear people just invent arguments in their head to get angry about.
The fuck? People hated CP3 for years over this exact thing
Huh? People hate when Chris Paul flops lol
Nobody says this shit
>But when cp3 does it it’s called smart basketball and veteran leadership No one ever says this... why you misrepresenting shit on here.
Harden shouldnt be blamed. Blame the refs
Yeah you can blame them but the truth is they dont have replays, all they see real time is a push off movement from kawahi hand that last .3 of a second and the ref that calls it doesnt see the foul harden commits beforehand. Those calls are hard to get
I think we can blame both, actually.
Betcha you would blame him of he was in the opposing team
I probably would, but it wouldnt be rational.
I like Kawhi but he has the most egregious push off on the league and rarely gets called for it. I hate flopping as much as the next guy but this is the rare instance I almost commend it for being smart.
Hardens Hollywood acting lessons over the weekend paid off
God I love the salt
I mean kawhi flopped to tie the game and harden flopped to prevent the tie once again. Perfectly Balanced as all things should be.
>we all know Kawhi pushes off like a mofo with his robot arm. Lol and so does Bron. Refs just dont call it on him. Mfer straight up elbow jabbed Okogie in the throat 3 games ago and it was a foul on Okogie
Paul George did it like crazy against Utah as well.
People complaining about him selling contact but not about Beverley trying to rip Jeff Green’s shoulder out. Both teams can get dirty lol
The irony is that Lue couldnt challenge this call because he wasted his challenge on that blatant Beverley foul
we love to see it. karma.
Please go look in the mirror and repeat "Beverley tried to rip Jeff Greens shoulder out" with a straight face. Dude got to the screen late and it was an offensive foul. What Kelly Olynyk did was try to rip Kevin Loves shoulder.
Ya’ll tripping, I was being dramatic. Still a dirty play though
It was just an illegal screen. You only said that cuz you don’t like Pat Bev. I don’t like him either, but there was nothing there.
yeah this exactly. i don’t care if people don’t like bev but if it was anyone else people wouldn’t be saying this
“Just an illegal screen” Tell that to Jeff Green writhing on the floor in pain and having to be taken out of a close game. And then Pat Bev had the nerve to mock him. Never had a problem with him before this, but come on.
It was an illegal screen but the problem is that he lowered his shoulder into him, if it was just a hard moving screen he wouldn’t be injured
Rip his shoulder? Are u for real lmao
Nets run LA.
We cant be hitting LA packs back to back, Im high as fuck right now Edit: why so salty guys? Lmfaoooo
Lmaoo win a title then talk to me
Bookmarked and followed
Lol as a So cal nets fan, I agree
Beautiful karma on Beverly cheeky ass
It’s more of the refs fault for allowing this to happen. James is just exploiting it for personal benefits.
The Harden defenders are out in full force tonight
harden haters are out in full force right now
They should blame beverly for convincing ty to waste their timeout with the challenge on his obvious foul.
where the fuck are all the nephews who said he stopped flopping once he got to brooklyn???
KCP protected LePussy James from the scary man Tyler Herro
This is a clown take, the calls are not consistent and Im not even talking about throughout the league, Im just talking this game. Harden literally did this to Kawhi and Kawhi was called on the defensive foul.
Kawhi literally got a bailout call running into DeAndre Jordan just a minute before this, stop talking like Kawhi doesnt get calls.
How far you want to go back? We talking about the last play of the game, but go ahead and circle jerk yourself
Smart sure, but it sure as shit doesnt garner respect. Win a game by hitting buckets, not falling down when grazed.
It was karma for clippers to use the challenge on a dirty Beverly play. Now they have no more challenge and time out left. Totally deserve it.
Ruined the whole game tbh. It could have gone to OT.
How so? Kawhi got a call like that 2-3 possessions before and people were calling him high iq
>As much as I love Kawhi for what he has done for Toronto >Lakers ???
There was a legit obvious push off by Kawahi. Quit whining Bro Montana. Roll with Christ.
