Danilo Gallinari warned for epically bad flop (VIDEO)

Mar 29, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

Among the flops people have been warned/fined for this season, Danilo Gallinari may nave my new favorite. And the league did officially warn him on Thursday for this beauty during the Nuggets loss to the Hornets Monday that snapped their 15-game win streak.

New Orleans’ Robin Lopez had set a high pick then sort of did a slow roll to the hoop as both defenders went to Brian Roberts. Lopez got that pass in the paint and turned to put up a shot from in close when Gallinari tried to draw the call.

There are so many great parts to this — how he extends his hands into Lopez so there is no body contact. Then there’s how he flies backwards after contact like a scene out of “The Matrix.” But the best part is that if the referees had gotten sucked in and made a call it would have been on Gallinari as he was in the restricted area at the time.

Time to get Gallinari some acting classes.

Thanks to Ben Golliver at The Point Forward for finding the video.

    Matrix? Maybe. More like a ninja movie. I looked closely for the cable attached to Gallo but couldn’t see it but it must be there…

      Crouching Gallo, Hidden Lawson…

    Nugget fan here.

    Gallo needs to get his priorities right. Perhaps instead of trying to get fouls all the time he should focus on actually making shots.

      You have my backing on this. I would love to see Chandler starting at SG and Iggy at SF and Gallo off the bench. I think Karl needs to put him in the doghouse.

    The best part of this video is the broken-record remix of “Blister in the Sun” in the background.

      or the grunt when he gets “hit”

    Even the Canadiens found this offensive.

    I can’t believe it’s his first.
