Frank Calhoun Is LeBron James’ Flopping Coach (Video)

If you watch enough basketball, you may be tempted to suggest that no one knows the art of flopping quite as well as LeBron James, but you’d be wrong.

You see, James wasn’t born with an inherent ability to flop.  Just like Luke Skywalker learned “the force” from Obi-Wan Kenobi, King James also had a mentor.  And in this case, playing the role of Obi-Wan was professional flopping coach Frank Calhoun.

Calhoun claims to have developed many of the NBA’s best floppers, including Manu Ginobili and Paul Pierce, but the biggest name on his list of proteges is clearly LeBron James.

You can take a closer look at some of Calhoun’s work via the video below:

So there you have it, folks.  The next time you see LeBron flop during the NBA Finals, don’t blame him.  Blame Calhoun!
