Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin had his best game of the playoffs but the talk after the game was about him flopping. During the game TNT broadcaster and former player Chris Webber called out Griffin for his acting. Weber went off on Griffin because a foul was called on the Memphis Grizzlies Marc Gasol when he went after a loose ball. Griffin made it look liked Gasol gave him a huge blow to the head but as replays show that was not the case. Here is what Webber said on TV during the game. “I think Blake Griffin is really playing hard and you have to love his effort tonight but I would caution him to be careful with flopping. I’ve played in these playoffs. The teams that were known for floppers do not get respect,” Webber said. “Flopping is not a plus in this game. And what do I mean by flopping ? This is what I mean.

Add to him two more misfits of broadcasting -- Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith of ESPN -- and you've got the "Green With Envy" Society's Big Three, live and in person. These guys just can't stand being reminded night after night what real talent looks like, speaking of Blake Griffin and CP-3 of course. Who else besides Webber would like to step up and join?
  • ...missed that one. They're all TNT, which makes even more sense.
  • And just as this is said, a cadre of the ESPN nameless also picked up the jealousy towel by going along with "Griffin flops." Did Griffin flop when Robin Lopez (Suns) strung a clothesline around Blake's neck while he was well in the air and came down landing gear up? These "flop-hoppers" couldn't even take a wet noodle around the neck themselves, so who are they kidding? They don't even belong in sports broadcasting ... Martha Stewart would be more like it.
