In other words, the NBA is close to finalizing the Clippers slipping into the 7th spot in the playoffs and Blake Griffin's defense getting even worse.


That would require Blake actually playing defense for the first time in his career

Wait, I thought Griffin already knew how to play defense you know because he's a "superstar" :blink:

I wouldn't call Griffin a superstar just yet. All star for sure though. CP3 is the true superstar on that squad.

Depends what you define as a superstar. If it is an all around player then there are only a handful of superstars in the NBA. Some define them as players who sell out tickets and are the main attraction for that team.

A legitimate primary option that would be capable of leading his team to a championship is what I would call a superstar.

Some examples include Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Derek Rose, CP3, Dwight Howard. Blake Griffin hasn't proven himself yet to be on that level.

Not all superstars are amazing all around players. Kevin Durant is an above average defender but nothing extraordinary on that end, and Rose is also more of a weakness in the Bulls defensive scheme really. But in order to be a superstar they do have to be pretty damn good in general, obviously.

LMFAO at one of the comments in the video


Evans probably attended Chris Paul's college of performing arts.

Listening to AM 710 yesterday, something interesting was brought up.... what exactly defines "flopping".

We know the over dramatic stuff like the Reggie Evans video above. But is something like Derek Fisher acting a little getting around a screen to draw the offensive foul really worth getting fined $10,000?

Also, since the fine is going to be about $10,000, if Ginobili flops 3-4 times in a game, will he be fined $40,000? I'm very interested to see the final policy. This is what I would like to see:

- Over the top flops given 1 game suspensions

- If a flop results in a technical foul for the opponent, that technical should not only be rescinded, but instead given to the player that flopped.

They didn't mention how flopping also affects the game specifically by putting guys in unwarranted foul trouble sometimes. Just one or two flop calls and a team can have an important player or even one of their stars or superstars benched unjustfully.

My guess is if there is no real contact from the opposing player and the player trys to make it look like there is contact. I dont think it will be that tough to determine. I mean its more like if you see it a few time on replay and say that was definalty a flop then it will be fined but if its iffy and people arent sure then I think they would let that slide.
