    Did Russell Flop? Did Willis Flop? Did Unseld Flop? Did Kareem, Malone (Moses or Karl) Did Magic, Larry, MJ?

    GOATs don’t Flop

    And the ref who called the foul needs to be suspended

    Have to say I saw both Larry and Magic flop when I covered them in person. They didn't always or even usually get away with it in the "play on" '80s, but it was in their repertoires. Hell' in the early '60s, Frank Ramsey, the Celts' sixth man before Havlicek, had an article in Sports Illustrated on how to draw offensive fouls.

    They didn’t throw themselves on the floor, spread their arms and scream bloody murder, did they?

    That's when i started hating Magic. He'd go through the lane, lose the ball, throw up his hands and scream "OOOHHHHH!"
    Flopping comes in many shapes and sizes.

    Detroit turned it into an artform. They'd beat the shit out of the opposition on defense then pull out the fainting couch on offense. And they got away with it because Chuck Daly was an absolute master at working the refs.

    Mahorn was the best
    He’d get McHale leaning on him, then he’d step back and McHale would fall down
