Request: Someone make a flop mix 

Post#1 » by Alfred » Wed Oct 29, 2008 7:08 pm

I've been on youtube looking up mixes, and it occured to me that there really isn't a compilation of flops. The flop is such an awesome display of basketball awareness and prowess on par with the dunk or the blocked shot. Floppers are artists who weave a web of deception; their flailing arms, the dramatic trajectories of their tumbles, the pained expressions on their faces, it's almost like a ballet.

Watching a slow motion video of Manu Ginobili or Anderson Varejao falling down on their ass in a dramatic way followed by the confused look of the person committing the foul is enough to make any grown man aroused.

The flop is even a risky proposition now! You can be fined for falling down gratuitously! It's almost like getting into a fight in the NBA!

Someone needs to make a mix commemorating these honorable heroes.

Floppers don't get the recognition they deserve! A blocked shot is a dicey proposition, because even if it's successful it could go out of bounds or into an opponent's hands, while a flop is a guaranteed turnover for the opponent! The NBA's block leader gets probably 3-4 blocks a game at most, while a seasoned flopper like Anderson Varejao or Jermaine O'Neal can fall down like 5-6 times a game!

Where is the respect for these gamesmen?

I sense some flop-envy? What's the matter, your team not have a pro flop artist on your team?

But this AK flop has to be the funniest one I have ever seen.

I agree. Top notch flop. Like a true champ, he took it one step further than he needed to. If you want to include it in the mix, you have to show the wheelchair scene followed immediately by him running back onto the court.

An excellent display of offensive and defensive flops as demonstrated by the spanish national team, i know its not the NBA but we need to give credit where credit is due. Let us all bow down to the greatest flopping team in all of basketball. Enjoy:

What a reel! Man, these guys certainly know how to fall over! I liked the play where both guys fell over at the same time. That's true teamwork if I've ever seen it.

They should add flopping to the skills competition at the All-Star game. I think Rudy Fernandez might be a surprise favourite!

I enjoy watching the occasion flop that has some really bad acting (Chris Paul, Baron Davis) but overall flops get too annoying!

Ah yes you speak of the rare and elusive double flop. Only the greatest of defensive teams who have been together for a long time, like the spanish national team, can pull that one of.
It truly is a master piece in its own. If single plays were admitted into the HOF that one would definitively get in!

When oh when will the NBA review flops and finally give players a suspension for them?

Ya the flop did come from Eruope alright, it actually started by their soccer players.......LOLLL
Thats why the best floppers are players like Sasha, Manu, Kirelnko etc, but then guys like Raja Bell, D.Fish mastered it.
How patethic...........LOLLLL

And basketball players have NOTHING on the soccer floppers. Basketball players flop, but they don't grab their heads/body parts and flail around like they got blasted with a full swing from Babe Ruth.

I know, Basketball players really need to refine their skills in this department. I don't think that players in the NBA really understand the true power of the post-flop injury roll on an official.

Hopefully we'll be able to catch up!

On the contrary, I don't think that you should laugh out loud loud loud loud at all. The flop is a true work of art. I wouldn't expect philistines such as yourself to understand.

Just make an Argentina NT video mix, they're the GOATs @ flopping.

Manu, Scola, Oberto, Nocioni... it's like an allstar flop team.

Must be an Argentine tradition cuz their soccer players flop like hell too.

What's funny is that although the best floppers played in Europe before coming to the NBA, NBA basketball is much more soft in comparison to European basketball.
