NBA Faking Fouls

Posted on: April 18, 2009 8:46 pm
 

I don't understand why the players don't get a warning for faking fouls if the refs can determine the player was not fouled and fell on the floor to act like he got fouled. Sometimes a NBA player will barely touch another player and he'll fall and slide across the floor like a weaklin. It makes no sense why the NBA won't come up with a rule against it because it shows lack of sportsmanship. Anyone else agree? Dennis Rodman used to be the king of getting inside players and refs head.

NBA Faking Fouls

I couldn't agree more. I almost find it impossible to watch Lebron James or Paul Peirce play anymore. They cannot drive to the rim anymore without either getting a foul call or straight Bi^ch to the refs if they dont get a foul.  Watching the Atlanta and Miami series has at times caused be to stand up and yell at the tv.  It just seems to be getting ridicoulous to me at times.

And it seems like the NBA has accepted the flop and has made it part of the game.

I'm with you on this one Jason. They need to create a rule that would keep players from doing this. If they get caught the officals should go to the monitor and if they conclude it was a flop it should be a personal foul, very simple. I have never been a big fan of regular season basketball myself but when I moved to OR I started watching the Blazers. ( They are huge up here ) Even when I lived in AL I watched playoff basketball because I guess i'm addicted to competiton and baseball has become very boring to me lately although I still look at box scores. They funniest thing is Shaq trying to flop on Howard and getting called out on it. If you remember Shaq was always calling out players ( Vlade ) for flopping on him. Now Shaq is a big puss and it is pretty funny to me to watch him resort to doing things he would call other players out for. Go Blazers and RTR!!!

 I cant even watch basketball anymore ... the game is a joke. Not to mention I already saw the best player who ever played. Michael Jordan ... no one did it better. Everything else just seems mediocre now, including Kobe.
