The Golden State Warriors were in need of some momentum as they trailed the San Antonio Spurs by five points in the fourth quarter on Saturday night. David Lee tried to provide that spark during an in-bound play, but he failed miserably.
As you can see from the video above, Lee tried to make it look like he was fouled by Tim Duncan while the Spurs were waiting to get the ball inbounds. Duncan didn’t even move — before or after Lee acted like he just stuck his hand in a pot of boiling water. Neither player was called for a foul, but the league could review the play to see if Lee deserves to be fined for trying to embellish.
The Warriors went on to win in overtime. But the real irony here? This is the same Lee who became frustrated with Blake Griffin for acting last year. You can see Lee yelling at Griffin to stop flopping in this video. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.
