Ryan Hollins’ flop was not one of the more memorable moments for the Los Angeles Clippers in their division-clinching 109-95 win over the Lakers Sunday.
During the fourth quarter of the game, Kobe Bryant was bringing the ball up the court for the Lakers when Dwight Howard got tangled with Hollins. Howard and Hollins exchanged contact around the 3-point arc, and then when Howard touched Hollins inside the paint, the Clippers center flopped on his back. The flop worked, because Howard was called for a foul.
Howard could not believe the call and had a big, “Are you kidding me?” type of smile on his face.
Though Hollins got the call in the game, he’ll probably get a call from the league office to warn him for that flop. Players better start to realize that if you flop, there are video cameras everywhere to catch it, and you’re not going to get away with it.

If this was strictly on paper and based off the reputation of the...

playoff-bound Los Angeles Clippers beat the Lakers 109-95 on Sunday
to clinch their first Pacific Division title in franchise history

But that doesn't necessarily give the Lakers an automatic edge over their opponent considering that this team is still having a tough time comprehending the importance of winning every game in order to even plan on what they...
