Flopping doesn't work in International ball
Americans are doomed

And we think todays BB has anything on the 90s.

Go compare the international competition during that time to todays. How many Euro guys were even in the NBA in the late 80s early/mid 90s, compared to now, or from other countries throughout the world?

Some of the best players in the NBA are non American now. Giannis, Jokic, Embid, Luka, and plenty of other good players too.

Lol you do realize France's best players are on the NBA rosters.

Yes, but the Frenchies know in international ball pretending like you've been shot won't be rewarded.

Uhh...flopping was made popular into the NBA game by the Europeans (remember Vlade and Tony Parker) and South Americans (guys like Ginobili and Varejao). Then again - Danny Ainge and Bill Lambier were flopping well before those guys.

Flopping used to strategic, and guys were good at making it look real. Now it's blatant and pathetic, like soccer.

That's not what we are discussing. French players playing in the Olympics also play in today's NBA and have performed those same "blatant pathetic flops" and expect same touch fouls as USA players when they play in the NBA.

As to your point - doesn't matter if refs call it. It is still strategic. You don't get an extra ft for making it look real. Refs don't fall for "real" looking flops today so players have to perform super exaggerated flops to catch their attention.

4ML, we've had this conversation before, you're pro flopping ( ). The honorable floppers of the 90's did it on defense.
The modern day flopper likes to cause a little contact with the defender, then with a pained look on his face, loose control of his body functions..pathetic

Could you imagine Harden playing the 80s Pistons? Todays game he would have 90 Pts with 85 free throws . 80s he would cry so much he'd gets a tech.

Naah I just don't have a habit of whining about it every other month.

I understood a while back that it's part of the game. And yea - flopping is flopping. Doesn't matter if you make it realistic or overly dramatic. Goal is to fool the refs not win an award in Cannes Film Festival.

Im used to having to dumb things down for you at this point. Back in the 80's-90's, flopping was gamesmanship. It was making normal contact, which was common, look flagrant in key situations. Watch the stuff Stockton used to do.

Flopping today is Cam Newton level bad acting, where every time theres a little bump someone throws themselves flying away on a delay and rolls on the ground as if they need to be hospitalized. It's embarrassing.

Luka gonna Luka. Btw - he's also a NBA player and about to drop 50pts in Olympics.
Damn it - missed by 2 pts.


Btw…Luka plays in the NBA.

Flopping is flopping. Stop with the boomer takes.

Why is synchronized diving relevant to an athletic real world skill?
