Between this, Harden's constant flopping, and Westbrook jumping into every defender, the league has become a joke in terms of star calls. Curry was literally not touched at all and jumped towards the defender. Been watching the NBA for over a decade and never seen this kind of flailing until like 2 years ago. It needs to be stopped

not the first flop and wont be the last... i will say this its only surprising because curry doesnt flop often.. he does jump into defenders but so does every other jump shooter... hell embiid did it tonight.

Lol did you watch the game? They showed the other angles. VC blatantly pushes his hand through Curry's hip on this shot when he was going airborn. It was a very clear, very blatant foul if you see it from the non broadcast view.

Edit: Here you go - 13 second mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NGel8tgQEI

I really don't think there's much acting at all. He puts his hand under/threw his hip when he's airborn. Curry's light and that was a 3pt jumper. That's going to knock him off balance pretty hard.

Curry looks for contact on these all the time, like he'll stick his hip out if he thinks he can get contact, but he won't fall sideways like that ever.

At first glance it does look like 100% flop lol. But yeah carters a wise old vet, tryna get that sneaky, "inadvertent" contact on Curry. Def a foul. Curry sold it a smidgen. But everyone does. Good call by refs

x2. Watching it real time I thought the same thing, complete bs foul, but they showed the reply and he got a good forearm shove in there.

He's got some ticky tack calls before for sure tho, I've seen it

As long as the refs make exaggerating contact a positive it's going to keep happening and it's going to happen more. Just remember Harden claims it's all copying him :)
