who knew that Isaiah Thomas was soooo big and strong that just by grazing MJ with his elbow, it sent MJ flying backwards.

Thomas was clearly MUCH stronger than we thought!

And at people acting like that wasn't a flop. He exaggerated the contact to get the call. Nice play by MJ. The point is to win the game, by any means necessary.

Flopping is an EPIDEMIC in today's game. You can thank Vlade Divac for popularizing it. Dennis Rodman would flop quite a bit as well, but not until his later years. Players would sell charges, and that was the extent of flopping in the old school game.

Notice NO ONE complained about the call. NO ONE complained of flopping...it was a GOOD CALL according to the announcers, WHY?? Cuz it was an obvious charge.

I'm 31. I watched the end of the Magic/Bird era, and the entire MJ era.

Acting like nobody flopped in the 80's and 90's is ridiculous. I'm not saying it isn't way more common now, and I'm certainly not a fan of it... but acting like it didn't exist is delusional.

Dennis Rodman is a top 3 flopper in NBA history. Yet go to Youtube and type in Dennis Rodman flop. Guess what you'll find? NOTHING. This is why when people say Griffin flops most as proved by Youtube, I laugh.

You hear that, everyone? Because Clippersfan found these examples of MJ flopping, you can NO LONGER call any Clipper a flopper.
