I'm glad CP3 doesn't support flopping.

Slumped in his locker room chair, Paul wasn't in much of a mood to hand out too much praise for his opponent. When it came to talking about Dirk Nowitzki's team-high 22 points, Paul said the 7-foot German was "flailing and all that different type of stuff."

Dirk is the only player that can dominate the FT line without ever being within 5ft of the basket and shooting a horrible FG% at the same time.

Credit goes to Mark Cuban for all the money he's paid to the NBA in his tenure as Mavs' owner.

And Wade is the only NBA player that can dominate the FT line without a player ever being 5 feet close to him...

And since when does Dirk shoot a bad FG%? He is one of the greatest shooters of all time.

Credit the referees of 2006 Finals for Wade's 98 free throws in the series. DOn't mention that though...

Dirk won't get respect from players like Wade, LeBron, Paul, Bosh, Carmelo, Dwight because he isn't in their little friends circle. Kobe is about the only superstar who always credits Dirk and praises his game. That little circle only respects each other and other "cool" players who get attention in the media. It's ok because Dirk is probably better than all of them in terms of winning.

Kobe used to get a ton of calls when he would take it to the hole on every play... but when the hell has he ever "flopped?"

-- Chris Paul calling anyone out for flopping is absolutely ridiculous.

One of the reasons why Chris Paul is unguardable is because every time someone tries to guard him, he ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS uses his off arm to fend off the defender, and the refs never call the offensive foul.

02-14-2012, 05:11 PM
Wow CP3 has to be nuts. The BIGGEST fake hustle flopper in the NBA right now is on his own team: Blake Griffin.

Making it really hard to watch him anymore.

I'm starting to like CP3... not b/c of what he does on the court, but how much of a sore loser he is. He's almost as bad as I am, or maybe Kobe...

I hate losing on the court, and when my teams lose, I am probably the worst poster on this board (just ask the laker/niner/giant fans on the respective threads)...

CP3 is just like that, whether its picking a fight with Pau or calling out dirk, he's bitter b/c he lost, and is acting out. Much props. There are just some of us that do not tolerate losing, can't stand it, and get very very very upset when it happens.

Even after all those weeks spent being banned, someone is STILL bitter.

And I LOVE that Chris Paul of all players is calling Dirk out for flopping. :laugh2:

soccer is the most popular sport in the world followed by basketball

what do these 2 sports have in common? they both involve acting and its sad how basketball, which before refs starting calling foul on little things like finger flicking, was once a physical sport but now is slowly becoming as pathetic as soccer the more refs become strict with the amount of physicality allowed in the game

He should not be talking. I dont know what he does personally but what I do know is that his teammate Blake Griffin is the king of flopping. He is one of the strongest people in the NBA, I hate when he does this. Flopping is such a sissy way to get points.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdWF3luMGKI

That was a hard foul but he gets fouled hard because other NBA players who don't play for the Clippers hates his showboating attitude, yea hes a good dunker but enough is enough man. He caries himself like hes the best player in the game, imo of course. He is by far my least favorite athlete in all of sports.

This is Andre Miller not taking any of it from Blake, love it:

Idk, I'd say most superstars don't flop. When I think of flopping, I think of it as something bench players and those who aren't established do :shrug:

CP3 definitely is a flopper and it's pretty pathetic that he has the stones to call out another player on that.

Rose doesn't flop in the traditional sense (throw his body around), but when he's slashing, his head bobs harder than my gf when she's giving me head... Wade and Kobe don't flop in the traditional sense either; Lebron, Dirk, CP3, Blake, Pau etc all flop like crazy (they'd do anything to get the call).

i think the people in this thread are 'whining' because of the negative context in which cp3 made the comments... it wasn't like he was admiring dirks "flailing and all that different type of stuff."....

and the negative tone that cp3 had when the comments were made are what people here have an issue with... don't make it seem like it's some horrible style of play when you yourself do this just as much, if not more...

i personally agree, it's a non issue.... but i guess i understand where everyone else is coming from...
