My goodness, will the NBA 3 point shooters stop flopping?

It happened last night against the Rockets with a Nuggets player flopping behind the 3 point line.

Tonight Novak flopped so badly and got the 4 point play while being behind the 3 point line.

It needs to get addressed during the offseason.

Christ!

I hate flopping rather passionately as well. It's a weak thing to do, but sadly nearly impossible to police. IMO Worst flopper in the NBA is d wade, by far. Paul pierce is a close second.

There is actually a rule against it. Supposed to be a technical foul. The thing is as stated you almost can't police it. At least not without replay. Plus no ref wants to T someone up over a flop in a game either.

If it get's bad enough to irritate the fans sufficiently....Stern will tell the refs to start tossing T's.

Seriously, I love Ginobli but you can't have a flop thread without at least tipping your hat to the guy.
Gasol too....I definitely think the euro players have some soccer influence in them.

I think the league will finally address this issue in the off season since JVG, NBA analysts, etc. have been so vocal about it. It could be either a technical foul or personal foul called....some people were saying about a fine, but really no need for that. It would be nice to have a review on those type of calls too. Maybe the league should do what the NFL does...basically the coach can have challenges with a flag...lol

It's bad when flopping results in 4 point plays.

The Heat are in a whole lot of the flopper highlights. Not shocking.
