How bad is flopping in the NBA? It has it's own wikipedia page. The Los Angeles Clippers, finally a title contender, could be the premier flopping team: Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Reggie Evans. Superstar Griffin and Evans totally admit to doing it to gain an advantage. Chris Paul denies it even though being called out by Coach Hollins.
How did the National Federation of State High School Associations, the governing body of High School Athletics, stop the flop?
They made it a technical foul. As a High School Official I would call it from the go. Some Officials will call a blocking foul for the first one and then a technical foul after that. One Technical for flopping and no one will try it again.
The rule, which has been around for about 3 years, has definitely put a huge damper on how many flops a game there are in high school basketball. Most kids do not even try it anymore. It is that good of a rule.
It's time for the NBA to stop following FIFA when it comes to flopping.
