VIDEO: Reggie Evans Flop Against New Orleans Hornets

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvQM5VYJokw&feature=youtu.be

The Los Angeles Clippers can do more than dunk.  When it comes to Reggie Evans, he can also flop like it is his job.  New Orleans Hornets point guard Greivis Vasquez got tangled up with Evans and gave him a little shot.  Evans acted like he was hit with a truck and he hit the ground hard.

The Reggie Evans flop was initially ruled a Flagrant 2.  Luckily, the video was consulted and it was changed to a personal foul.  Thankfully they did that, because flopping is just awful.  I do not watch soccer because I think flopping is too prevalent.  I try to ignore it in basketball, but I know it is there.  Just do not make me pay attention to it.  I do not want it ruining the game I love.

Anyways, the Clippers got a win and Evans basically sold his basketball soul.  How can you be taken seriously after a flop like that?  You should have to sacrifice your man card.  That is just unbearable to watch.  Vazquez couldn’t make Evans fall that hard if he took a 50 yard running start and smacked him.  The sell job is just so off the charts.

There needs to be a league meeting to discuss this.  We need to eliminate flopping from the game.  Start fining players, ejecting them or whatever.  Something needs to be done.  You are rewarding actors, not athletes.  Make them do the right thing instead of flopping for a call.

Thanks to CBS Sports for the video.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
