    Look on Youtube. You'll find about 100 Griffin flop videos/mixes. If you go in with a logical, unbiased mind you'll quickly see that most of them aren't even legit flops but rather exaggerations of existing contact or trying to draw a charge like Rodman who you're defending.

    This is exactly what flopping is for....

    In Jordan's case, not as much as these disgusting superstar floppers of today.

    Good find, OP.

    Though, it doesn't change the fact that Flop City flops.

    Chris Paul, Mo Williams and Reggie Evans are the only non contact floppers on the Clippers. Griffin has done maybe 2 or 3 of those his entire career tops.

    Most of his flops are much like Rodmans; exaggerated contact.



    The flops people should really be against are the no-contact flops. I remember LeBron had one last year in the Finals that was disgusting.



    Again, I don't like flopping at all, but it's part of the game; always has been, always will be. As the league gets softer and softer... expect more flopping.

    Exactly. Non contact flops should be outlawed. Players who do this should be fined $10000 when they flail to the ground after not even being touched

    Didn't look like a flop looked like he didn't want to get hit in the face and leaned back causing him to topple something most humans do.

    Since there wasn't that much flopping back then, Dennis flopping was like a comical thing, him doing it to piss off his opponent. That was his main thing other than rebound, trying to get his opponent really angry and that's how I used to look at his flopping. I never saw the way we see flopping today.

    And defense of today's players, it's the rules. The rules are softer, this is a very competitive sport. If any little contact is going to get you the ball, then you can sure as hell expect for flopping to take over. Teams want to win. Put pride on the side and flop. It means extra possessions and extra points.

    You hear that, everyone? Because Clippersfan found these examples of MJ flopping, you can NO LONGER call any Clipper a flopper.
    Where in the post does it say that, dumbshit?

    If you can't tell the difference between selling contact and flopping, i don't know what the hell to tell you....

    Selling contact, is what otherwise would STILL be a foul call. Selling charges doesn't change the outcome...it merely embellishes it...Selling doesn't take an obvious non-call and make it a foul.

    Flopping is over-reacting to minimal to no contact to coax the ref into calling a foul.

    There's selling, and ACTING.
