I’ve been helping Beckley Mason at HoopIdea with Flop of the Night. We’ve been trying to Stop the Flop in the hopes that we’ll have less acting and more basketball in the NBA.
People have been calling out/snitching on the worst flops of each night. I’ve then pulled the video for Beckley and Royce Webb to choose from and then they select who was the most egregious of the floppers for the night. While Blake Griffin’s acting job against DeMarcus Cousins was the big winner last night, I couldn’t help myself from enjoying the antics of the Knicks-Magic game even more.
Even though Dwight and SVG were the real sideshow, we saw some serious flopping by opposing teams at two different times in the game. One was Iman Shumpert fouling Hedo Turkoglu, causing him to propel himself into the air. The second one was Carmelo Anthony crashing into Jason Richardson while going for a loose rebound, and countering Hedo’s propulsion into the air with one of his own.
Naturally, I turned it into this horrendously stupid video. I present to you…
