Houston Rockets guard and former Arizona State Sun Devils star James Harden is one of the NBA's top players, but he's come under fire from time to time for his alleged "flopping" -- i.e. acting as though he's been fouled when he really hasn't.

During a Drew League game in Los Angeles on Sunday, the four-time NBA All-Star confronted a courtside fan who was accusing him of doing just that.

"You flopping, bro! You Vlade Divac-ing out there, bro!" the fan yelled at Harden, referring to former NBA player and notorious flopper Vlade Divac.

Those comments were enough to get Harden's attention during a brief timeout in the action.

"A flop means nobody touches you," Harden explained as he approached the fan.

But the fan wasn't buying any of it.

"Come on, man. You've got to be honest, man," he said.

Harden, who starred at ASU from 2007-09, ignored those comments and got back on the court, where the fan continued to criticize him.
