You don't see the foot stomp?
I see him lifting his leg while Giannis's leg is on it, LBJ forcibly pulling it to free his leg and his momentum causing his foot to stomp the floor...not Giannis. I would think if LBJ was foot stomping someone, he would've got him and it would've caused damage. You honestly think LBJ is trying to injure Giannis in that play? Yeah it was an unnecessary "get off" me leg movement, but the force is pushing Giannis leg out and away, not coming down on it for what I can tell.
He was staring at Giannis the whole time to get his attention while Giannis was falling while Giannis was still focusing on the play. The stomp was absolutely aimed at Giannis but he quickly got up to get back on defense. The get off was fairly tame while the stomp was ridiculously forceful. It was an **** move by the King with intention.
There was definitely a stomp. But I don't see any intent to land on Giannis.
Show me a screen shot where at any point Giannis's leg was underneath lebron during the 'stomp'. It was definitely I'm bigger and stronger gesture, but you are making it out to be a move that could've injured Giannis.
Again, I see Lebron (with his leg) move Giannis leg away from LBJ. Then stomping the open ground in the space he had just cleared. Is it a "Come on, just play the game" moment? Yes. Is LBJ the scum of the earth for trying to intimidate Giannis? No. At no point did I see him trying to injure Giannis beside a couple shoves that happen every single play and more has to do with LBJ being so strong compared to other players.
