: : : : : : I have been the big mouth touting Katie Lou's greatness for a couple of years. I still think she's great, she can shoot the lights out, and she's also a great kid. But now I see the light. She really is a blatant flopper and cracks under pressure-not traits associated with tremendous greatness. She lost me last night as a huge fan. That flop should have changed the outcome of the game...and that's not how to win a championship. Just like Mater Dei, she was unable to step up when it really really mattered. Now, please don't get me wrong, this player is overwhelmingly talented, a phenomenal shooter, continues to improve her game, but, the flopping, in my opinion, is cheating and negates all the good. Last night was good for women's basketball, great job Mississippi State, you took down Goliath.
: : : : : I especially loved how she was grazed on the chin but fell to the floor clutching her throat. She got the two free throws but won't get any awards for her acting. Not a good night for Mr. Samuelson.
: : : : Goes to show you, hype and all the accolades only go so far.
: : : That's what I've been saying for years. KLS is a flopper and will always be a flopper. She tried to steal the game from MSU because she couldn't beat them with her "skills" So glad to see that Karma paid her back.
: : KLS is a great player but she does seem to have that youngest born, entitled air when she plays. Maybe that's why she feels she doesn't have to do the dirty work like defend. Maybe Geno can give her the guidance she needs but that moment of flopping was ridiculous. It was shown on slo-mo several times and after she hits the deck, watch her look up as if to say "did you see that?"
: Sorry but I think most of you are either fools are haters. She tried to do what millions of players before her and millions of players still to come try to do all of the time. She tried to influence an Offical to get a call. Heck they went to replay and gave it to her. I am not a fan of flopping but get over it. How many times has someone pointed the other way after the ball went off them, how many players have done something when the official wasn't looking only to call for the ref when the opponent retaliates. (Lebron). I don't know why there is so much HATE for this girl. She is what 20 years old and you all expect her to be perfect. I don't know how good a player she will be someday but I sure would want her on my team.
Have a nice summer
