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.

You should say flopped, because he doesn't really flop about anymore. I can say from personal experience that at his advance age it hurts to much to fall on the ground.
