Well, the 2nd half was pretty neat.

Is there something in the water over there that has players going for the opposing guy's package?

While I agree that Ginobili and others flop, the US's got CP3 & LeBron over there.. they flop A LOT. They just don't have to from time to time, but if it's ever needed, it's there

It's not just Ginobili, like you said, it's others and in this case it's all of them. I'm not excusing LeBron or (especially) Paul, but the entire team for Argentina was flopping all over the floor.

Really? I watched the game too and didn't get the same idea.. And I HATE flopping, I'm always on the lookout because I want to see it be punished.. I didn't think there was as much flopping as you said. Maybe I'm wrong

I can't believe people are dissing Spain rather than just seeing that Batum is a dickhead that has absolutely no business punching others in the nuts and not being apologetic at all...

he is a punkass. Where is DJ Mbenga when you need to give a wannabe an oldschool arse-whooping.

IMO, flopping warrants Bynum/Barrea type retaliation.

You're wrong.

Also, Navarro didn't flopped. The only flop was by Rudy when the game was already over and after a hard foul by Turiaf. Watch the game.

My memory sucks so I can't remember names :man10:

I just remember watching and thinking "wow, there's like no contact on half of these fouls".

Im talking about flopping in general, not just that game.

Spanish players/teams have been thinking they are entitled to get a favorable treatment from refs since they have been on a roll in majors sports for half of a decade so they are crying/flopping all game long .... same with Barcelona in football for example .

Congrats to Spain ... there are still classy players on this team ... except for Navarro , Fernandez and Calderon

You call out Barcelona when all clubs in football have players who dive. Or are people mad that Barca keep winning title after title? Keep in mind that I am not a Barca fan, in fact I am a Liverpool fan.

Ok, but i still think you're wrong. I'm all about good hard old school fouls. I don't like cheap dirty moves when the game is over because you lose and then trying to focus the issue in other people rather in that coward move.

Oh, I'm sure dirty fouls are not the smartest or most accepted ways of dealing with flopping. I'm just speaking about me personally. I would stand up and cheer if a flopper got laid out and injured, be it international players, CP3, Lebron, Griffin, etc. I hate flopping so so much.
