He was fine during the regular season, but started doing it big time in the playoffs. Everyone will have a different opinion on the matter, but for me, I don't care who he is or who he plays for, diving and feigning is never acceptable sportsmanship in my eyes.
I hate diving, but I'm fine with it so long as the league continues to accept it.

Either way though, it's ridiculous to hold it against him as if it makes him a worse player. In fact, he's a better player because of the diving in terms of winning. So any issue you have with the diving is more personal then anything.
