Lionel Hollins all for anti-flopping rules. Marc Gasol, Tony Allen anyone?

Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins has stated that he is all for the League's anti-flopping rules.

"Flopping isn't a part of the game and it shouldn't be a part of the game," Hollins said. "That's why we have rules in place. There are probably a few more that could be called on a lot of people still in it."

Hollins' statement is ironic. Can you say Marc Gasol, Tony Allen? If you barely blow on any of the Grizzlies, you are guaranteed to see them fly all over the place.

By the way, Mike Conely thought that Allen's flop was funny.

After hitting the floor, Allen held his head while appearing to writhe in pain. Video replays showed that Allen's head never made contact with the court. The incident was apparently a source of some amusement in the Grizzlies' camp.

"I almost wanted to laugh on the court, but I was too tired and too focused on the game," Grizzlies guard Mike Conley said.

Oh, by the way, let us not forget that it was Lionel Hollins who during a press conference called our very own Chris Paul a flopper.
