Is LeBron James a flopper? Donny Marshall thinks so (VIDEO)

In an effort to compliment Brooklyn Nets forward Andrei Kirilenko for his reckless, honest style of play, YES Network color commentator Donny Marshall threw a pointed jab at Miami Heat forward and four-time MVP LeBron James, implying James was an actor who embellished contact.

“So many times you see guys in this league who need a stretcher — LeBron James — when they get hit, they’re like Premier League soccer players, you know?” Marshall said, eliciting laughter from play-by-play commentator Ian Eagle.

“Can we rewind?” Eagle joked to Marshall after. Marshall did not elaborate.
