  Complete NBA All-Star starter voting, from LeBron James to Nate Hinton LeBron James led the NBA in All-Star starter voting by fans (5,922,554), fellow players (214) and media (100). But despite winning the overall fan vote for the fifth straight year, something he previously said drove him him to compete hard in All-Star games, LeBron is not enthused about going to Atlanta for this year’s event. Nate Hinton received no player or media All-Star votes and just 238 fan votes, the fewest in the NBA. But he’s not far removed from just being happy to hear his name called on draft night. Not as an actual selection. But by the Mavericks, who called to sign him as undrafted free agent.

He has led the league SEVEN TIMES in free-throw attempts, with an array of moves in which he leans into defenders or falls back when an offensive player’s elbow gets close to his giant beard, or turns what could be a little contact into a lot of contact.

But on Sunday night, we got the GOAT moment. The greatest flop of all, the one to put on Harden’s Flop Hall of Fame plaque.

With just seconds to go in the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers’ game and the Clips down two, Kawhi Leonard drove to the hoop and Harden embellished the contact from Leonard.

Look at that thing. It’s beautiful. It’s art. Leonard has his left arm on Harden for sure, but not enough for it to draw a whistle. That’s when Harden feigns like he’s being pushed backwards.

This isn’t about whether it’s right or wrong (although I wonder if the NBA will be fined for flopping). This is about the art of the flop. From that perspective, with the game on the line and perhaps Harden knowing it couldn’t be reviewed. it’s an unbelievable play.
