    Ugh, I agree with every word of JVG, the flopping is just ridiculous in the NBA.

    If Vince McMahon ran the league JVG would have been fired. I hope he continues this. He went hard.

    Props for getting the video. I completely side with JVG, flopping is a joke and it's really becoming NBA mainstream this season.

    I like the idea of the 'tech foul' system for flops, Griffin especially looks like a damn soccer player out there.

    Flopping, technicals for trash talking/clapping hands/disagreeing, star calls and rookie calls - that's what kills the game.

    That's why there are yellow cards for flopping in soccer (kind of technical).

    Jeff is still the man. I enjoyed every bit of his commentary on sunday.

    Mike Breen is such a Lebron/Miami fanboy, it's cringeworthy.

    Jeff openly admitted that he still hates the Heat before the game started. Huge props to him for doing that on national telly - takes some balls.

    He rooted hard for us all game, while Breen was on Lebron's nuts all day...

    Jeff for HC again please. Nothing against Woodson, decent coach and I like him, but Jeff is Jeff - I'd take him back any day.

    I think it's because the refs are really sold on the flop. At the initial moment someone flops, refs have the tendency to call offensive foul. It's almost as if they are trained to do so. Jeff Van Gundy is one of the few to express his feelings on what he knows is BS. Breen is not in the business of making opinionated comments. He wants to be "safe," I guess.

    I wholeheartedly agree with VG. Even when I played in basketball on the HS and college levels, I never remembered this many floppers in the sport. I don't blame the players for flopping. If they are getting rewarded, they will continue to do it. I blame the refs and the league. So many pussies in the game, it's beyond pathetic.

    I never liked flopping, it's cheap ball. This play envolving Shump was a game breaker, clearly a BS call.

    At one time, the Knicks had a master of the flop in Gallo, and this is one of the main reasons why I disliked him. There is no room for this crap in the NBA. I don't think I can ever respect any player that uses this as part of his game. ATM, I can't even recall the WNBA using these extremes to get the refs to help them out.

    Van Gundy is that dude...I've always worried about him getting himself fired from ABC/ESPN but it hasnt happened yet. Hes the definition of real, Breen is a fake hating ass cornball.

    I don't think fines would work.

    What we could have is each team gets one or two "flop challenges" per game where all the refs would have to video review the "flop" being challenged. All refs must agree that the "flop" is questionable, and then the foul would be nullified.

    Actually that's not such a bad idea, having cards similar to soccer, 2 strikes and your out. If you get say 10 first strikes in a season your suspended etc.
    Thoughts?
