I saw on SI.com the NBA is taking steps to prevent so-called “flopping“, which allegedly has no place in the game.
I’ll be excited to see players lining up to deliver hits to a NBA player slashing to the basket. After all, if you’re not going to get charging calls, just dish out a big hit on the guy driving to the basket. You’re going to get a foul and fined anyway.
Did I say the refs in the NBA are corrupt and probably won’t make those flop calls anyway? Did I say the NBA itself…who will review every game to pick out flops…will probably penalize players it doesnt like and leave alone players who make it big dollars? Did I say that a fullback in shorts…like LB James…is now going to be allowed to wreck players on the court by smashing anyone who gets in front of him?
What a fraud that league is, but douchetastic sports media types will probably endorse phony rules and efforts to manipulate competitive balance even more favorably towards the favored teams.
