NBA’s Flopping Rule

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
