Top five floppers in the NBA

Mr. Chicago's post about flopping made me want to create this thread... I can't stand a flopper, so I want to call some of them out:

1. Andereson Verajao

- He's become irrellivant since LeBron left Cleveland, but his flopping will be legendary.

2. Manu Ginobli

- He's a franchise caliber flopper. Superstar. One of the best in NBA history.

3. Luis Scola

- Is there a more terrible flopper? I hate this guy's flopping. Just as skilled flopping as his post moves.

4. Derek Fisher

- He's known for a handfull of things... Championships, big shots, big dome, VP of player's union and... Performing an act of mastery flopping. And the older he gets, the more he flops. A sign to retire old man.

5. Jose Barea

- Omg... I hate this guy's flopping. He draws more flopping layup fouls than anybody else in the league.

6. Andre Nocioni

- Read Verajao. Not even becoming irrellivant can hide you. He can't play, but you know he can flop.

7. Blake Griffin

- He may be the NBA's most exciting player and most pathetic flopper all at the same time. I mean, I HATE this guy's flopping. You didn't really get touched Blake... Why are you on the floor really that mad? He's rising up the list.

Add your own...

I don't know if it's flopping

I don't know if it's flopping but anytime Dwyane Wade gets touched he completely oversells it. I can't stand it, did it like 5 times against Chicago last week.

More or less agree with Indiana. I just hope basketball never gets as bad as soccer.

Yooo, curious how Blake Griffin can make this list when his legendary flopping teacher CP3 didn't, lol.

Your list is actually

Your list is actually perfect, but I'll add CB4.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/25/chris-bosh-flop-carlos-boozer_n_828177.html

On Fisher's behalf, for every million flops he's performed, he's actually managed to step in and take several real charges.

The king of the flop though IMO, was Dennis Rodman. That guy truely knew how to sale a flop. The man would literally throw himself backwards into harms way to make a ref buy his flop. Not like these guys today such as Blake G.

I don't know about Anderson

I don't know about Anderson Verejao becoming irrelevant since LeBron left. He's actually pretty good.

I am really glad I'm not the

I am really glad I'm not the only one who noticed Blake Griffen and D-Wade...neither of them seem to flop in terms of flop/charge, but anytime anybody even breaths on them, they are instantly in agonizing pain. The guy boxed you out, he didnt poke you in the eye...the guy contested a shot, he didnt hip check you.

Griffin has the upside to be a dominant flopper, not quite to the level of Verajao but he has a unique skill set being in Hollywood and he utilizes it.

Barea also has franchise pillar flopping ability-though he is so damn small that sometimes it may be legit

Scola imo goes from a top 10 flopper to top 5 because of his hair. If he had shorter, normal looking hair, he would be in that 8-12 range...not a franchise go to flopper, but a definite Scottie Pippen caliber number 2 option on a championship flopping team.

No Bosh

Everytime Bosh gets touched he goes flying to the floor.

Seriously, NBA players cannot

Seriously, NBA players cannot flop. To find the real masters, you've got to cross the Atlantic and watch soccer. Hilarious.

Really, Varejao is third in

Really, Varejao is third in rebounds per game, first in offensive boards per game in the league.

Say anything you want, but that does grant you some relevance

The Anderson irrelevant

The Anderson irrelevant (thanks Tyrober lol) comment just means that he isn't getting as much publicity now as he was back when LeBron was in town.

He's played very well this season though.

Anderson

I would like to see a video from the last couple of years of Anderson "flopping." He has turned himself into a complete player, scoring and rebounding without flopping. Even officials have respected him more the last couple of years. As usual, the viewers pidgin hole certain players and they can never break that mold. I watch almost every single Cavs game, and Andy rarely flops anymore. Get with the times, that list would be right 3 years ago (assuming guys like Blake G were in the league).
