Default ESPN: Looking forward, great point to address.

Just found this little quote on ESPN, glad to finally read something like this....

Looking forward to: An NBA with little to no flopping. I know it's just the preseason, but you can already tell the players decided to put on their big-boy pants (big-boy shorts?) and not let the league call them out for deceitful play.

Not looking forward to: Fans booing because a help-side defender took a charge and fell backward. That's not flopping, folks. Falling backward is just as much self-preservation as it is an attempt to draw a whistle.
If I had a buck for every time some idiot call a guy falling back a flopper, I'd be rich. You're taught to fall back, it saves both players from unneeded damage
