5 Biggest Floppers in the NBA

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistJanuary 25, 2012

Just how some coaches are unrepentant screamers, there are players in the NBA who are unrepentant floppers. For those playing the home game, a flopper is someone who is playing defense and goes flying across the floor even if the man he's covering barely touched him or even touched him at all.

As a result, fans whose teams play against these guys root hard against them and are merciless with the boos when the flops happen. Seriously. Mention Paul Pierce to any Lakers fan, and chances are they'll go into a profanity-laced rant about the 2008 NBA Finals.

In other cases, there are floppers who exaggerate it so much that it's just laughable to the point where you almost want to see them flop just for a cheap laugh. Bleacher Report's own Josh Benjamin has had some rants about the NBA's biggest floppers bottled up inside for a long time, and he has chosen to share them with some devoted readers who hate them just as much.
