Found February 13, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

The charge/block foul in basketball is one of the toughest/most blown calls in sports. Rules have been put in place, including the restricted area arc, to make it easier for officials.

Some schools, like Duke and Wisconsin put emphasis on taking the charge and often times their players aren't shy of a little embellishing. The embellishing, other more technical term "flopping", has become an epidemic in all levels of basketball - on both offense and defense - that needs to be extinct..

We've dug up the 20 of the worst flops you'll ever see.


Carlos Boozer's elbow odor must have stung Chris Bosh's nostrils.

Even JeBron Lames isn't above the flop.
Raja Bell's acting classes have paid off.

I'm surprised Manu Ginobli didn't roll around on the pitch grabbing his ankle after this one.
Manu Part Two
The double flop?! The ref should have been given clearance to eject both players here. And what do ya know, it's Manu again.
Two Serbian players flop within seconds of each. Notice the music.
Two Chicago Bulls, Kyle Korver and Omar Asik, try their hand at the Manu Mash.
OKC's James Harden flopped hard in last year's Western Conference Finals.
Big Shot Flop Bob couldn't sell Jeff Van Gundy on this ridiculous flop.
Duke's Greg Paulus set to a laughbox.
Duke must have one heck of a theatre program.
UNC's Tyler Hansbrough felt the need to compete with Duke in charge-taking too.
As I was saying, JeBron Lames isn't too proud to flop. Marv Albert bought it.
You'd think it'd take a lot to knock down a 340 pound man.

Nuggets guard Rudy Fernandez isn't that far removed from European football.


This one is totally deserving of a yellow card.
I swear Wisconsin works on this junk during practice.
Here's one with some international flavor...put to Fatboy Slim.
Patty Mills, former St. Mary's star and NBAer, does the hump 'n flop in international ball.
