    Last season, concerns about flopping rocketed up the list of NBA issues. It’s not like flopping was anything new to the NBA, but it was in the spotlight and gathering attention. Basketball was drawing soccer comparisons. And if there is one thing David Stern can’t tolerate, it’s the image of the NBA being sullied (lockouts…

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    David Stern does not like where all this flopping is going. You can like to believe that its because Stern cares about the integrity of the game, I tend to believe he doesn’t like the PR hit the league has been taking on the issue, but either way he wants to crack down. That may…

There has even been talk of passing some rules that would penalize a “flop.” Shane Battier, who is among the league…

  6. James Harden had a fine-worthy flop in Game 3

    James Harden

    I’ve come a long way on flopping. The natural human instinct towards flopping is to treat it with bile-ridden disgust, turning to effusive outrage in egregious cases. Fans complicate this. Your guy flops and it’s a “savvy, veteran move.” The other guy does it and he’s a “stinking cheater who flops like a (European).” In…
