Flopping in the NBA

    The Magic almost lost a home game tonight because a ref bought a flop by a Raptor with nine fucking seconds left.

    I am sick of this.

    The ref should be suspended for a game for buying that flop. If they stopped calling it, they would stop doing it.

    I have played basketball for about 28 years, and maybe five times in my life have I been put on my ass by a defensive or offensive player.

    Thanks for reading this rant.

    How else would I make a living during my NBA career, if I couldn't pass?

    The king, but now it seems like half the league is on their back faster than a prom date after a few beers.

    Kevin Love has ruined his enjoyment of college basketball. And the floppers have ruined the NBA for him.

    Well, there's always Candace Parker.

    Q: What phrase did Chick Hearn utter multiple times a game from 1989-1996?

    Simple solution: just call a foul on the floppers. Really there is nothing to deter a guy from flopping. Either you draw the charge or it's a no-call. Start calling a foul on flopping (isn't it a penalty in hockey?) and it cuts that shit out or else Manu and many others will be fouling out in five minutes every night.
