Default The worst flop in NBA history



The league really needs to start penalizing players if they do this. Technicals for this would be perfect, or just not calling it at all.

Yesterday in the Houston game Chandler flopped, Yao scored and then tripped over him and they called an and 1 for Yao, it was beautiful. They really need to stop rewarding guys for falling and promoting straight up defence. They shouldnt be allowing the floppers the advantage just because they cant guard their man and force themselves to the floor to try and get calls.

they said theyd start penalizing this this year but it hasnt happened. Calling techs on players who do this would solve everything.

I guess it's tough to call when guys are diving, but you're right, it should be cleaned up, because it is starting to get out of control. You would hope that the players would have a bit more pride, but I guess it all comes down to getting the calls.

Is this the flop that you were talking about in the Garnett thread? That's such a sad attempt at a flop. It shouldn't even be called a flop.

I doubt it would happen just because the concept of "flopping" is soo abstract and obscure.

Its obviously very subjective and I'm not talking about when guys run in for layups and guys get there because those ARE charges.

I'm talking about when big guys or guys with a height mismatch post up smaller guys and the smaller guy just fall because they have no chance against them, and when players flail when they either run into screens or get somewhat handchecked(ie Iverson/Ginobili).

Most of the time, referees will have a hard time seeing a flop from not in real time. So I think players should just get fined after reviewing the game.
