On Thursday, Green shared an Instagram post quoting James’ response to the recent criticism of the Lakers. “We don’t work on flopping,” the quote from James reads. “We’re just not a team that goes out there and looking for flopping opportunities. It’s just not us. It’s never been. There’s actually never been any teams that I’ve played on in my 20 years where we’ve been a flopping team.”
Green made his thoughts on the quote abundantly clear with nothing more than a cap emoji, which he placed on James’ head.
James shared his comments after the Lakers’ 121-106 loss in Game 5 on Wednesday. Before the game, Warriors coach Kerr said that there “was definitely some gamesmanship” from the Lakers during Game 4, which the Lakers won 104-101. “I give ‘em credit. If you can sell a call in this league and do it, then you do it. Whatever it takes to win,” he told reporters.
As reported by CBS Sports, Kerr took particular issue with an illegal screen called against Draymond Green in the final moments of the game. "Really, really a tough call for us," Kerr said, accusing Lonnie Walker of flopping without directly naming him. "Tough call. I mean, it's a blatant flop. He just takes a dive, and the ref bought it. Like I said, you give 'em credit, but you lament the fact that, as a league, we're going to reward that type of play with the game and the series, all that stuff at stake. You would hope that the officials would recognize when a guy just takes a dive."
