LeBroning

Meaning

Flopping

LeBroning is a term that references LeBron James' propensity to "flop" during a game in order to draw a foul. It was especially popular when LeBron cramped up during Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals when the arena's air conditioning broke.

The term is most commonly utilized during a basketball game, since it originated on the court. But "LeBroning" Vine videos and Twitter hashtags have become popular. Videos consist of people walking up to unsuspecting strangers and flopping down on the ground. Lebroning is similar to the Tebowing phenomenon.

Example

"Did you see Joe's vine of him LeBroning at the mall?
Yeah, they were hilarious."
