Amateur soccer coach grabs throat for greatest flop of all time (Video)

Throat-grab-flopJust when we thought Dwyane Wade had guaranteed himself the award for best flop of the week with this ridiculous acting job, an amateur soccer coach from Germany comes in and steals the show. If you’re going to act like an opposing coach wound up and karate chopped you in the throat, you might as well do it up right.

As you can see, the coach in green got into it with someone from the opposing side and was pointing his finger in the gentleman’s face. When Mr. Black reached up to knock the finger away and made contact with Mr. Green’s neck area, Mr. Green clutched his throat and dropped to the ground like he was choking to death.

Somehow, Mr. Green was up off the ground exactly six seconds later and getting into the face of Mr. Black once again. NBA players should take notes — that’s how you sell a flop.

Dwyane Wade gets call on blatant flop on Manu Ginobili (Video)

Dwyane Wade flopSome may call Dwyane Wade a wily veteran for some of sly tricks he employs on the court. Whether it’s a subtle kick to an opponent or a blatant flop that gets a call, Wade does what he can to get the edge. And on Sunday, he got a call by putting on a great acting job.

Wade got the ball in the second quarter and was being guarded by Manu Ginobili, who swatted at the ball in an attempt to get a steal. Wade jolted his head like he had been struck by Ginobili, and he got the call.

Ginobili couldn’t believe it, and neither could Gregg Popovich. Replays later showed that Ginobili was nowhere near Wade’s face! About the only thing that could have knocked Wade out was his own elbow on that reaction!

He got the call in the game, but Wade will probably be penalized by the league for that display.

Tiago Splitter flops like he got shot (Video)

Tiago Splitter flopTiago Splitter will likely be hearing from the league office about this flop he pulled in the second quarter of Game 4 between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.

With the Spurs trailing the Thunder by eight, Splitter decided to try pulling a trick out of his back pocket to see if it would help. While defending Serge Ibaka at the elbow, he got pushed and flopped to the ground like he got shot.

Splitter didn’t receive a call for his acting job, but he still might hear from the league. We’re guessing he learned the move from his teammate, the flop master.

Kevin Durant pulls off funny flop against Clippers (Video)

Kevin Durant flopIn addition to NBA MVP, we can now add “world-class flopper” to Kevin Durant’s basketball resume.

During the second quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Clippers and Thunder on Wednesday, Durant was trying to chase his man around a pick but ran into a wall named DeAndre Jordan. After losing JJ Redick, Durant decided to flop and act as if he had been zapped by a cattle prod.

Redick missed the shot anyhow, but something tells us KD may be hearing from the league for reasons other than them finding out where they should mail him his MVP trophy.

Best flop since Jerome Simpson against the Cleveland Browns? I think so.

Vince Carter gets call on pathetic flop against Spurs (Video)

The Dallas Mavericks are facing the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs, so Vince Carter decided to do his best Manu Ginobili impression.

During the fourth quarter of Game 6 between the teams, Kawhi Leonard pushed off on Vinsanity and was called for a foul. Though Leonard did push off, Carter clearly had a delayed overreaction and could get punished by the league for it.

Just look at Vince’s face here:

Vince Carter flop

That’s the kind of play that doesn’t show up in the boxscore, but will be appreciated by the folks over at SAG.

Rajon Rondo had a hilarious flop against Jeff Teague (GIF)

Rajon-Rondo-flopThe Boston Celtics have not done a whole lot right lately. Losers of nine straight games and 14 of their last 15, the Celtics are already crossing their fingers that the ping-pong balls will drop their way in a few months. Heck, they can’t even flop correctly.

During Wednesday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Rajon Rondo had a pathetic attempt at drawing a charge call late in the fourth quarter. The Celtics were scrambling to get back on defense following a turnover when Rondo stepped in front of Jeff Teague at the top of the key. The only thing I could think of while watching the play was “TIMBERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!.”

Rondo slowly fell backward despite the fact that Teague didn’t touch him. Fortunately, no foul was called. Rondo could be hearing from the league for that one.

Joakim Noah thinks Roy Hibbert flopped on this play (Video)

The same day the Chicago Bulls accused the Indiana Pacers of being big floppers, Roy Hibbert may have proven why the label was justified.

During the second quarter of the game — which the Bulls won 89-77 — Joakim Noah hit Hibbert in the head from behind while defending in the paint. The replay showed that Noah definitely caught Hibbert in the head, but did he smack him hard enough to cause the massive center to go down in as much pain as he showed? Probably not.
Joakim Noah flop
Noah put his hands on his hips as if he were disgusted by Hibbert’s act, shook his head, and then he looked over at his bench for commiseration.

What’s ironic is that before the game, Bulls forward Taj Gibson said the Pacers had a lot of floppers.

“There’s a lot of floppers’’ on the Pacers, Roy Hibbert told teammate David West that Gibson said.

“That’s who said it, D-West! Taj called us floppers,’’ Hibbert said. ‘‘I haven’t taken a charge in probably four years. He’s entitled to his opinion. I’m just going to play hard.’’

Just play hard? Noah definitely disagrees. There was a flop there for sure.
