If its not a foul, but just a pure acting job and the reff still gives him that call then its not really his fault, but the reffs... unfortunately reffs dont have the replay footage we have with all angles, they dont have access to that unless its a last seconds of the game thing... reffing is very difficult... if you think you can do better, go ahead and try reffing an NBA game for just a minute, you will get shot by the fans afterwards

Ref has one F fakkit....

Those 2 examples were really reaching. I can't recall MJ ever flopping. I'm not saying he never did, but those weren't good examples of flopping. He tried to get in front of the man and take a charge.

Basketball players do charge drills starting in HS, maybe earlier.

Here's an example of the charge drill.

I didn't see the Griffen play, but if it is similar to this, then whats the problem? When taking a charge, prior to impact you want to start leaning back, to take the force out of the blow.....wouldn't make sense to take the entire force of the collision to your chest

It's pretty funny how a clear elbow to the sternum is considered a blatant flop from Jordan, but CP3 throwing his head backward on a slight brush of an arm is not a flop at all.

You're getting it. A FLOP to me is when either no or very little contact exists and you react like that. 90 percent of what people call flops by Griffin are legit contact.... that he's just adding a dramatic flair to. I can only thing of one flop where he didn't get touched which was where DeMarcus Cousins swiped for his face and seemed to miss and Griffin held his face.
