The physics of flopping:
SMU researcher studies mechanics of NBA fakery
Was it a flop or not?
Last summer, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban gave Southern Methodist University more than $100,000 to try to answer that question scientifically. On Thursday, SMU biomechanics expert Peter Weyand demonstrated the early stages of his flopping research to a small group of journalists....
The only flopping I have a problem with is when there was actually no foul committed (like when LeBron does it).
I have no problem with a flow to highlight a foul that was committed (like when Manu does it).
If you set up to take a charge, and just absorb the contact and don't fall to the ground, it will either go unnoticed, or it will be called a block rather than a charge.
Oh puh-leez, Manu flops with the best of them.
