Breaking News: LAC didn't invent flopping

OK, we've heard a lot of "complaining" about the Clippers flopping this season. I'm assuming Jazz and Nuggets fans are especially upset because they lost those games. Clearly, flopping is a new phenomenon in the NBA given the recent outrage from non-clipper fans. But wait, there's also this new thing called YouTube! and *gasp* the Nuggets and the Jazz and every other team in the NBA flop too. Seriously though, flopping is a part of the NBA period. Until the league decides to punish flopping (with a technical foul or other punishment) or refs stop calling them, flopping will live on. Obviously, refs don't always catch flopping (which is kind of the point) which means teams use this as an advantage. NBA champions flop. It's not new, it's not cheap, it's SMART.
