During the fourth quarter of the game, Kobe Bryant was bringing the ball up the court for the Lakers when Dwight Howard got tangled with Hollins. Howard and Hollins exchanged contact around the 3-point arc, and then when Howard touched Hollins inside the paint, the Clippers center flopped on his back. The flop worked, because Howard was called for a foul.
Howard could not believe the call and had a big, “Are you kidding me?” type of smile on his face.
Though Hollins got the call in the game, he’ll probably get a call from the league office to warn him for that flop. Players better start to realize that if you flop, there are video cameras everywhere to catch it, and you’re not going to get away with it.
Do you think Hollins’ flop was worse than this big time dive Danilo Gallinari took against the New Orleans Hornets last week?
