eh Manu plays tough defense, takes as many legit charges as anybody, and it's def a different bland of flop then what we saw, say, Griffin doing last season... from what I've seen, there seems to be less gratuitous flopping this season, slightly... the warnings/fines publicly call out the players, and I think that's generally helped.

No. The floppocalypse was HIS making (and Raja Bell's). As bad as any Griffin flop ever, since there really was no movement to cause the reaction. Griffin's at least usually involve him off the ground jumping.

*remorse*

To be fair I think the "crackdown" has curtailed flopping in terms of a being a rampant league-wide problem like it was last year...

Its still not enough though IMO, they're not strict enough and they barely go after star players.


As for Manu though, dude is crafty w/ the flops what can I say, its an artform in his repertoire...
