Manu is the greatest NBA flopper of all-time. I mean, he has some monster flops.
He’s never been an outstanding defensive player candidate and probably never will. This despite the fact that he’s ultra-athletic and has a solid hustle game.
His last flop against Memphis’ Marc Gasol was indeed ridiculous. As NBA TV analyst Jerry Stackhouse pointed out, the exact same play happened later in the same game.
The results with another player’s reaction was much different.
Ginobili stayed on the court—face down—before limping off the court and missing the next game—a loss to Portland.
The way he flops, he probably does think the NBA is professional wrestling.
