Players flopping in the NBA in order to convince the referee to call a foul has become somewhat of an art-form. Although it had gotten so out of hand with the players’ theatrics that the NBA started fining players for intentionally flopping. The other night Golden States Draymond Green took a glancing blow to the face from San Antonio’s Jonathon Simmons and proceeded to act as if he had been shot.
Let’s see what Twitter thought of Green’s latest flop.

What's worse - Draymond's flop, or the fact he had to flop to get the call after catching a hard forearm to the face?

He clearly took a forearm to the face and it probably was a foul, but the overreaction to the contact by Draymond was priceless. Even Spurs coach Greg Popovich had to chuckle about that epic flop.
