Jamaal Tinsley on Manu Ginobili: The Spurs’ color commentator, as someone who’s seen more than his share, offers a genuine, “nice flop” compliment after Tinsley’s backcourt mugging. Him doing this to Ginobili, in San Antonio, is like me offering Steven Spielberg advice on directing.
Pau Gasol on Kevin Garnett: While Gasol’s flop is a true flop, it’s not like Garnett’s known to be the most above-board defender of all-time, either.
Derek Fisher on Ray Allen: Two All-Star calls on the TV here: “Derek Fisher does such a great job of making it look like a sniper shot him.” — Mark Jackson. “Fisher is a renowned flopper.” — JVG.
Omer Asik and Kyle Korver on Josh Smith: In the same category of the same-play double flop is the same-possession double flop, this time pulled off by the Bulls. Asik’s pre-empted flop is the best of the two, clearly. Boozer probably looked at Smith and thought, I know.
Rajon Rondo on James Jones: We bring you full circle. The man whose flop sent JVG off the deep end watched like a matador as Rondo flails by him to get foul shots.
Who is the worst flopper?
