Default Why don't the Spurs get criticized for flopping?

We always hear about flop city, how CP3 and Blake are flippers. How Wade and Lebron are floppers. Yet am I the only one who's disgusted at how much the Spurs were flopping in this series?

Parker clearly overreacted about a chalmers' elbow, and Manu was literally falling down EVERY defensive possession to get a call. Holy ****, not to mention Parker flopping when Lebron stripped him at the end of the game.

No, because they're so classy and well organized. They can't do any wrongs.

Everyone knows the Spurs are floppers.

Parker is one of the games best at going to the hole and scoring lay ups. He's also perfected the art of falling down every time he goes to the basket and it gets him a lot of and 1's over the years.

Probably because my refs are informed to not give the Spurs the benefit of doubt either way.

The same reason you don't criticize a dog for barking or digging holes. It's a given that international players are the biggest floppers.

Given his history of flops, he probably overreacted. You don't get knocked down by an elbow to the ribs/abs when you live in the gym all day.

Manu used to get chastised for it pretty bad.
