Can we talk how r/nba has just accepted the fact that hes a major flopper when he isnt? He does the usual pump fake jump into a defender 1 time a game or two, but i havent seen him flop on defense this season, or offense for that matter, trying to sell a foul yes, but outright flopping no.
Hey guys please stop trashing my favorite player, okay?
Lukas my 3rd favorite player on the mavs, but ok.
Genuinely interested, who is your top 5?
Porzingod, Tim, Luka, Boban, Brunson.
Luka has definitely flopped. Or at the very least initiated the contact on shooting fouls. Though it’s unfortunately becoming part of the game. He’s not the biggest flopper by any means but it’s definitely a part of his game and he probably does it
Well yea, he does the Bs pump fake jump into a defender, but every player does that bs, its just for some reason, he gets called out the most.
I think he gets called out for it less than Trae and Dame who are the biggest candidates for it. He falls right under them in attempts it seems like so I think he’s being talked about the right amount.
He flops, but no more than the average player. People were comparing him to Harden and thats ludicrous.
Thank you, ofc he flops a bit, I cant point a player who doesnt, but people act like hes peak Marcus smart level or James Harden.
I agree. Hes pretty much league average in this regard, he didnt invent the pump-fake-and-jump-into-defender move. He learned it in this league. On his drives I dont think hes primarily baiting fouls.
> but no more than the average player. Delusional.
Who cares if he is or isn’t, we are not in 2013 bruh. Flopping is part of the game
That doesnt mean its a good part of the game or that we should like it.
Everyone flops, it’s the only way to get calls.
Its true that its the only way to get calls (which sucks butt), but its not true that everyone flops. Though Id say those who dont flop just complain instead (looking at you Tatum).
And the people who don’t flop don’t get consistent calls
I think Luka whines .ore than most to the refs, but people who compare what he does to what peak Harden was doing are just delusional.
He definitely whines, but atleast now he gets on defense and whines, before he would just straight out argue with the ref and not get back on D.
I haven’t seen Harden “flopping” either.
