Don’t Flop Till You Get Enough
I’m pretty new to this blogging thing, but I thought that this topic should be discussed in some way. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a very big basketball fan, but something has been making me change the channel and watch some real men battle it on the ice, this something is called “flopping”. Now, I know I’m not the only one out there that’s disgusted with watching these primadona’s flailing around like they’re on Broadway. Basketball was never like this. If you took the ball to the rim in 1972, you were lucky if you made it back to the bench with your sneakers on. But, you know what the best part about it was? The Ref’s kept their whistles silent and let them battle it out for the rest of the night. One prime target of this flopping era is the King himself. Yea you LeBron, you’re guilty as charged. You’re the size of a mini van charging into the lane like freight train, why flop?
As you can see, sports as definately changed over the years, maybe once Stern has sailed into the sunset, the NBA can hire a new commissioner that will give us a little more excitement out on that court.
