GIF: Bucks' Jeff Adrien with Flop Of The Year candidate

The Milwaukee Bucks officially clinched the NBA’s worst record this season (15-66, as of right now), but that’s not all they were aiming for in Monday night’s 110-100 loss to the Toronto Raptors.

That is a clear flop — and one that got the call, which is why guys do this.

The referees called a foul on Adrien. By the way...
