His momentum was taking him back. Now tell me, how would he avoid getting hit on the face without going back like that?

You are a dumb.

One you don't see me talking about CP3 flopping, the one time I did I was defending him, in the same way I'm defending Jordan right now, because CP3 had a legitimate case in my eyes and everyone consider everything a flop. But you're comparing Apples to oranges, deflecting, that's why I'm calling you a moron, cause that's what you're doing. Comparing a guy trying not to get hit in the face, to a guy that sees a body coming, not knowing is a ref, and then flinging his head back like he just got elbowed by Metta World.

That's not excessive flopping at all.


We are talking about Griffin falling over 20 times a game looking for a call, blatantly cheating, when there is obviously no foul. Not a guy losing his balance one time trying to take a charge.

Piling on. Everyone knows the Clippers flop. No secret. Is it because they're currently winning games that people feel the need to pile on everyday? The Clippers must surely be the best at flopping because they've done a very good job at taking the attention away from other floppers. Danilo had a major flop the other night and how many threads were made about it? Probably 1 or 2. Why? Because the Nuggets are losing and no one cares.

This is my last time entering a flopping thread although I know I'll probably run into a post mentioning it in other threads. It's just silly. Flopping is silly and people continuing to say the same things everyday is silly. People not being smart enough to know that it will continue until the league does something to stop it. But hey, I guess it makes for good conversation though right?

In this play sure I admit he did flop but this is nothing compared to Lebron's hit by air flops. Now for a new challenge, find a video of Jordan flopping on offense.

Take the charge full on. Didn't look like he was getting ready to get Metta World Peace'd in the face. Geezus.

He didn't need to. Refs worshipped him. Plus he was far more skilled than Griffin. The problem is Blake's game depends on being able to bang... and when players are allowed to play you dirty it's much easier to stop. Jordan had a shot, Griffin doesn't.

That's not a flop AT ALL....that's "selling" the charge call..he was there in position, and Isiah was gonna run him over anyway. There is a big difference in selling the call, and flopping. If Isiah stopped short of Jordan and barely nudged him and Jordan goes flying, flailing his arms around, that's FLOPPING>

Griffin is selling calls too... yet nobody will admit that. Unlike Jordan who got no contact here.... Griffin DOES get contact with his flops.

Jordan DID get contact.....

He got an elbow in the chest. That's an obvious charge call.

This is FLOPPING.

Griffin is a BIG, STRONG MAN. No way does that put him flying into the first row....

Err, it's not a flop at all, and it's hysterical that you went through a ton of trouble and this is all you could find. Isiah brought his elbow up INTO MJ's solar plexus, which WILL knock you back and down, especially if you're already backpedaling; Isiah's momentum just continued through MJ and he basically HAD to fall. Not a flop AT ALL. Watch the replay in your second video and it's abundantly clear. What a joke.

Everyone flops. Always have, always will.


The scrutiny and attention is just 10x's what it used to be. Every play people are seeing 3 instant replays and crying like babies on twitter and facebook (and ISH).
