NBA's concussion policy irks Monty Williams, and that's just the idea

Monty Williams wanted Anthony Davis to be able to make his own decision about playing after he received a "mild concussion." But under the NBA's new rules, it wasn't up to him.

You forgot about Lebron James as one of the biggest flopper in the NBA.  You all talk about a train going through, and if he is even touched he wiggles and falls to the ground.  I mean, "come on man."

No sh*^&t!!  Red knew the game. I just wish between the refs and the league, they didn't convert the league to a star centric league bent on "protecting" the stars. Those stars see that and realize if the flop they'll get the call

the head-jerk was a little much but there actually was a foul there so I don't think it can technically be called a flop.

ok, but that wasn't a flop, he just lost his balance and it wasn't even called a foul. and c'mon, that's the GSW, the same team that benefited by 2 bad calls on 2 flagrants over Blake in order to get a W, it's not like they have any credit to claim anything.

No charging calls in the paint. Block it, strip it, or get out of the way.

Flop of the Night: Paul Pierce

He has a reputation for toughness and big shots, but Pierce is also one of the best when it comes to flopping on offense. Here are two plays from Game 6 in Philadelphia that prove as much.

I really hate floppers. I can't get myself to cheer for cheats.
