Are we talking about flops in general or is there a specific flop that you are upset about?

Well while on the topic, I thought they were going to enforce it, all I've seen is more of the same. Unless I missed something, considering I haven't watched much bball considering how awful it is to be a Wizards fan right now.

European influences being taken into the game I guess :/

There's a difference between trying to draw a charge and flopping though, but still I can't stand it either. Hate it when Rudy Fernandez does it... luckily he's one of the few on the blazers that does it..

Yea I dont think any Hornets do it, I remember the CP3 one with Bowen last year though it was funny.

Flops are hilarious. It reflects badly on the player who commits it when it's oversold. How many times have we seen someone flop and get dunked on, or fly across the floor with no contact?

Again it is a good tactic once in a while, but when a whole team refuse to "man up" and play like men, it is sad for the game. If you can't guard the guy, foul him or make him defend you on the other end. I have taken a charge before and damn does it hurt! But a flop, I couldn't even imagine, as a man, intimating that this other man was so strong he knocked me to the ground. If I was a woman and my man came home after a game of flopping, I would make sure he sleeps in the garage and won't let him back untill he gets his balls back.

Instead of the NBA to adjust the rules of the game, they are only concerned with Lebron 24/7.....Oh my God, he just bit his nails again...wow facinating........Penalize flopping, it is an epidemic and some teams have turned it into an art form, a science.

Man up, play defense, if he is better than you and scores, smack his *** and say nice shot.

It is a sad day in the NBA when Shaq is flopping at a wiff from Howard when his whole career he dissed Ewing and Divac for flopping.

CP3 doesnt need to flop cuz he gets the VIP treatment.

In hockey and soccer, you get penalized for flopping. But in basketball, fouling is a much bigger part of the game plan. You should be able to draw an offensive foul without trying to get nominated for an Oscar. The refs really need to stop obvious flopping. It's ***** horseshit

no there isn't. everytime he falls, he acts like someone shot him in the chest with a shotgun. it's so pathetic.

Whoa! Not as much as Kobe Lebron and Wade. I really don't think he gets it as much as others.

oh man, did he get fined for his stunt on Villaneuva? If Villa got ejected for that, i think Varejao should've been as well cuz he started it. He made his teammates "step" up for him when in reality- no reason.

they should definitely call those and assess them as tech fouls.

They should break out the cards in the NBA. Guy does a bad flop or for the techs just break out the yellow or red card. I love that it makes it exciting and sends a clear message. Flopping shouldnt be tolerated when its obvious. If the guy makes a great play positionally and wants to be sure it gets called....hey wat the ******* right but when its like the punted dog scene from Anchorman.....pull out the card.

If Charles Oakley was still playing flopping wouldn't exist.

"Manu Ginobili out with skull fracture by hard Oakley screen"

"Varejao out with broken ankle by stepping on Oakleys foot"

"Nocioni out with torn buttcrack after Oakley wedgie."

I grew up on soccer, but all the flopping and diving have made it unwatchable. I can only watch the World Cup.
