The Absolute Worst Floppers in All of Sports
Lynne Sladky/Associated Press

Diving, embellishing, simulating…flopping. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a problem. Flopping is not fun to watch, and if the fans don’t like it, then the leagues have a problem. (Can someone please make sure Erik Spoelstra reads this?)

The NBA introduced new anti-flopping rules in 2012, and other leagues have taken notice. The NFL warned its players against fake injuries and the NHL actually tossed around the idea of making a most wanted list. 

But despite sports’ best efforts to curb the theatrics, it’s still a major issue. Behold, the worst floppers in sports. These thespians hold themselves to a higher standard—flopping more often, more consistently and of course, more egregiously than their lesser counterparts.

Honorable mentions go to Kyle Lowry, Luis Suarez, Tavon Austin, Chris Paul and this kid.
