PLAYERS: Jeff Van Gundy

Nothing irks me more than refs REWARDING flopping, especially when it deals with the offensive variety. It’s easy to blame the superstars, we are all guilty of this, but it falls squarely on the shoulders of the NBA refs. Without them compensating athletes for their acting and theatrics, would flopping be as abundant as it [...]

  • They're already some terrible refs this season.So watching replays of bad calls would take up more time than the game.

Jeff Van Gundy goes on epic anti-flopping rant

Yesterday during the Knicks/Heat game, a rather routine play in today's NBA game set Jeff Van Gundy off on a tirade Ian Eagle would be proud to hear. James Jones of the Heat flopped to earn an offensive foul on the Knicks' Iman Shumpert, a play that happens seemingly a dozen times a game. However, it must have been one too many times for Van Gundy, who erupted on flopping...

Jeff Van Gundy’s rant on flopping in basketball

The subject of flopping in basketball has become much more talked about in the last couple years.  It started in soccer, but has quickly invaded other sports.  Some college teams (Duke and Wisconsin come to mind) have turned it into an art form.  But, flopping is not just for amateurs.   It is quickly becoming an epidemic in the NBA too. The argument in my mind is whether it’s...

Jeff Van Gundy goes off about flopping in the NBA

Is flopping an epidemic in the NBA? ESPN/ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy certainly thinks so.

Video: Jeff Van Gundy loses it over flopping

Flopping. Say what you will about the "tactic" NBA players use to get the refs to make a call in their favor, it sure does draw the ire of many fans, players and in particular Jeff Van Gundy. What's that? How much does flopping get to Van Gundy you ask? Well I am glad you did. In a recent game between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks, James Jones of the Heat went...

Jeff Van Gundy rants about flopping

During the Miami Heat vs New York Knicks game, commentator Jeff Van Gundy started a nearly 3 minute long rant about flopping, stating that David Stern needs to do something about flopping in the NBA. He suggests instituting some sort of fine for flopping, and perhaps a system similar to technical fouls where after a certain number of offenses, a flopper could be suspended. What...

And here’s Jeff Van Gundy going on a rant about flopping

We all know that Jeff Van Gundy has been known to speak his mind whenever he feels the need. Well during the Heat-Knicks game yesterday after Iman Shumpert was called for an offensive foul, Van Gundy went off.

Jeff Van Gundy Goes Ballistic Over "Flopping" In The NBA

JVG hates flopping and he isn't scarred to tell you.. in this 2 minute rant, he goes as far as saying that the NBA condones the act of "flopping." He blasts David Stern by saying,"were paying the commissioner like 25 million dollars, he can come up with a solution." I don't think the little big man is going to take too kindly to those words.

Jeff Van Gundy would rather NBA players don't flop

Jeff Van Gundy, anti-flopper. They are the problem, and a $25 million dollar per year commish should be able to fix flopping. Just ask JVG. He told us during the Knicks / Heat game... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

Utah Jazz announcer completely loses his mind over missed layup

I think we're beginning to see mounting empirical evidence that the packed NBA schedule is beginning to take its toll on the league's broadcasters.  First there was the now infamous tirade launched by Ian Eagle against Mike Fratello.  Then, there was Jeff Van Gundy flipping out on flopping and challenging the league office to act.  But, perhaps the craziest NBA announcing...

Video: Epic rant from Jeff Van Gundy on flopping in the NBA

The NBA has an epidemic going on, according to Jeff Van Gundy, and it is flopping.  He wants the NBA to get it together and start handing out fines and suspensions because it has gotten out of hand.  Listen to him go off for about 2 minutes straight after James Jones of the Miami Heat [...]

Jeff Van Gundy Probably Cut Kate Upton From The Three Stooges For Flopping

I’m not a fan of Jeff Van Gundy — the only time he comes up in conversation is when I need someone to compare to Stevie from ‘Eastbound & Down’ — but I appreciate the thorough, somewhat obnoxious lengths he goes to to condemn flopping during Sunday’s game between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks. He’s right (he’s completely, 100% right), but at some point...
