Default Kobe: "Shameless flopping is just a chump move."

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/blog/ke...flopping-fines

Quote:
"I'd love to see it have an impact on the game itself," Bryant said. "In international play, they give you a technical foul, a free throw and you get the ball back. I like the rule, though. Shameless flopping is just a chump move. We're familiar with it, and Vlade [Divac] kind of pioneered it in the playoffs against me and Shaq."

I don't have it, but someone post that pic of Kobe getting slightly nudged and then flinging his body to the side.

Coming from the guy who was actually suspended TWICE for his flopping. In what Stu Jackson would describe as an "unnatural basketball movement" .

Calling for fouls when there is no foul is a "chump move" for the exact same reason, but I guess for convenience Bryant forgot he does this every single time he attempts a field goal.

Kobe really doesn't flop too much. He whines for calls but you don't really see any blatant flops from him.

Why does he have to say "me and shaq".
It was 99.9% against Shaq.

I think he's referring to the Lebron kind of flops

Kobe just called the whole Heat team "Shameless flopping chumps"

Cold blooded!
