Paul George to Mario Chalmers: ‘stop flopping’ (Video)
The Indiana Pacers forward was dribbling beyond the 3-point line and deciding what he would do. As he backed up into Chalmers, Chalmers flopped, giving George a wide open look. George took the three and made it to put Indiana up 17-15 in the first quarter. Chalmers didn’t get the call from the refs, but he heard it from George on the Heat’s trip up the floor.
“Stop flopping!” George barked at Chalmers. “Stop flopping! Flopping a– n—–.”
Flopping has been a huge issue throughout the series. Lance Stephenson flopped on Ray Allen in Game 4, and then LeBron James and David West were fined for flopping on the same play in Game 4. And in Game 6, LeBron James, who said in the past that he doesn’t flop, flopped on George. This time it was James’ teammate flopping on George. Maybe the players will be less inclined to flop if they’re not getting the calls.
