So they put a video out of what will and won't be penalized - I disagree with how most of the "not punished" flops are judged, clearly it's all designed to fool officials which is just a [expletive] way to play in my opinion. I did find it comical that the Clippers were involved in SEVERAL of the plays - guess they'll have to figure out how to get around the rule, you know that Flop City will follow their leaders in the asshattery - Blake and CP3.

This was the funniest thing I've seen all day. "This flop will be penalized.". That narrator's voice sounded like something from a 1950s infomercial.

Parker's flop was the worst. He should be ashamed of himself. And that gallinari flop actually helped us win that game. Without him going European on that play, we might have lost in the first round.

Flopping penalties are a good thing, since these shenanigans really make the NBA look bad. And it actually helps us since no one on this team is a flopper since Fisher was traded. buhbye Ginobilli career. spurs, heat and celshyts should be worried.

What do you mean by "going European" ? Americans flop as much as or even more than the European players .. I think the video was a proof :laughing: Not all Europeans are floppers .. don't believe in stereotypes, dude.

Btw, the only issue I have with the new flopping rules, and all fines for that matter is that they are expressed in dollars. I think fines should be expressed as a percentage of income. Antawn makes vet minimum while Kobe makes 27 million, yet they both would have to pay the same amount of money for the same infraction. Not fair IMO.

A lot of people when mentioning the Clippers are quick to point out Blake & CP3 and for good reason obviously, but, don't you guys forget about Mr. Chauncey Billups. He's quite up there himself.

yo.

Good lord, I haven't even seen that CP3 flop until I saw the video. Chris should be ashamed of himself. I'd be 'sonin' him too if I saw him pull that crap in front of me lol.
