flops are trying to create fouls that didn't happen, overreaction isn't flopping. the guy in the video even said that that was a legit foul u fkcing idiot.

I'm same way. If it goes uncalled and is super dramatic it's hilarious. Kind of like CP3's tornado flop AFTER the foul was already called. Didn't hurt the Lakers but was hilarious to watch.

It was a foul, it was an arm-bar on Perkins. He stuck his arm out and it touched/grazed Parker. Parker's reaction was ridiculous though obviously.

If they were to limit it to only flops when there was no foul at all, it'd be pointless.

And any fan should agree (that ridiculously exaggerated movement has no place in the game).

The only opposing argument u can have to that is if you say you like flopping because it's hilarious.

If the rules and the game is called in such fashion, of course they're gonna take advantage, it'll be almost dumb not too.

Everybody flops!!!

Naturally…. some do it more than others, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that the rules let them gain from it. It becomes 2nd nature to them.

Honestly that video makes the rule seem pretty lenient. You can still sell contact, you just can't do the outrageous CP3 heliflopter stuff.

I hope this makes guys think twice about even selling contact though. Hopefully it will help bring back some toughness into the NBA.

Just gotta love ISH and their ISHiots

The thing that kills me dead is how they sit there and try to defend the indefensible. A video/gif of Lebron BLATANTLY flopping to them it's "oh...well....you see. He got something in his eye, lost balance and couldn't see his defender, so that's why it looked like he was flopping, but he wasn't." BG hitting himself in the head, and it's "oh....you didn't see his head snap back form that forearm shot he got hit with." Then they have the gall to get mad when people don't take them seriously

Those are two of the worst ones I've seen recently.
This.

Even though I'm a LeBron homer, I've always said he's the greatest flopper of all time. The dude obviously flops. We all know it. The NBA knows he's the league's face right now. They're not going to use him as an example of something negative.

I guess they used Wade and CP3(+multiple clippers) to have the appearance of not being biased so they can say "hey, we used Heat and clippers players as examples". It's not fooling anyone though. They're not gonna use the face-of-the-franchise players.
