    The fact that they call that a "smart play" makes me sick. That was one of if not the most egregious flop I've ever seen.

    Was that Collins doing the expert analysis of that play? God I hate that guy. First it was, "Perkins just runs right over Harden" (wrong) then it's a "great play by Harden" to flop, then "hard for a big guy to stop" or whatever. Notice also all of the subsequent replays were from angles that would tend to support the bad call, and none came from the original angle that clearly showed Harden ran up into Perkins, pushed off his chest, and flew out of bounds. All that is to say, sometimes the NBA, their crooked refs, and their sycophantic TV announcers, make it hard to conclude the games aren't rigged at some level.

    What you have to understand is that the NBA never wants to insult the integrity of it's officials. It's to a point that bad calls aren't replayed and announcers say stupid shit like that. If you look at that clip where Harden flops, you will notice that the official has a HORRIBLE view of the play.
    He is looking at asses and elbows when he should be looking at the players sides (open look) He guesses (another cardinal ref sin) and completely blows the play. Then everyone in here talks shit about Harden flopping. It's not Harden's fault. It's the ref's fault through and through. If players were not rewarded with whistles when an out of position referee calls a flop they would self correct and stop flopping. It's simple. Get position, see if the offense goes to and through the defense (while the D is in a legal guarding position) and if the defender flops ignore him. He will whine. Tell him stop flopping and keepitmovin.

    Exactly!!! We should be asking the NBA to fine refs for being complete idiots. Once the NBA start taking from the ref's pocketbooks, they won't strive to get the calls right. Then when the refs are actually calling the game right, the players will have to adapt. No more flopping because it gives them no advantage.

    Exactly. NBA ass kissers like Doug Collins and Reggie Miller won't say anything to make the league and the refs look bad, and the networks won't show unfavorable replays. IOW: They lie to their customers. Then the ref, who didn't see the play (or he's incompetent or he's corrupt), feels compelled to make a call, because Ass Wipe Harden just banged into a bigger player and went flying out of bounds, arms and legs a-flailing. Gah!

    Exactly, let's see Harden flop when he has a terminator 5 feet away from him waiting to call him on it.

    Maybe cyborgs, since not everything is black and white when officiating a basketball game.
