Whatcha gonna do when they come for you???

This post is to memorialize some of the best acting that has ever taken place in the world today. I'm not talking Pacino, Gable, or Jim Varney. I'm talking about the art of the "flop" in the NBA. They have their past legends---Vlade Divac, Reggie Miller, and Dennis Rodman. But there is a new breed that has taken the NBA by storm.
The sheer acrobatic ability of these men is amazing. To time when a player is roughly 6 feet from you...and then to imitate a shotgun blast to the face is pure talent.

I say memorialize because the NBA has put the players on notice that this will not be tolerated next season. I wonder how this will affect the lives of some of the greatest (floppers) in the game today::
Raja Bell, Derek Fisher, Matt Harpring, Anderson Verajao, Kobe Bryant....and the king of them all--Manu Ginobili.
Well...per normal NBA referee policy, the amount of flop calls will be inversely proportionate to the number of jersey sales you had last season. Think Kobe will ever get called? Yeah right.
So as we bid adieu to the flop, let's fondly remember the originator of this lost art.


And you can't show pictures of old Lakers with showing the greatest Laker ever to suit up.

I'm sorry that your wife is more interested in sports than you are. Please close the lid after you sit down to pee.
