Sports · Feb 8, 2023 · BabylonBee.com

U.S. — The NBA has confirmed that in addition to setting a new scoring record, LeBron James has broken the record for the largest number of flops in basketball history.

"This is the stuff of legends," said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. "Mr. James has sailed past previous records set by Reggie Miller, Vlade Divac, and Dick Van Dyke, and has earned himself a place in flopping history as the greatest flopper in the history of the game."

"Congratulations, King James!"

Sources say that while James has scored over 38,000 points in his NBA career, he has successfully flopped over 580,000 times. "Each dramatic flop has a look and a feel all its own," said Silver. "James is original, daring, and dramatic. And the crowd loves it! There's nothing the crowd loves more than the game being stopped every 4 seconds to shoot free throws. Just thrilling!"

At publishing time, the NBA had confirmed James also broke the all-time whining record.
