Is This the Worst Flop in the History of Basketball? YES (Video)
Basketball plans have a special kind of hate for players who flop. It’s cheap, it’s cowardly, and it’s just such an undignified way to try to get an advantage that few have the patience or tolerance for it.
Despite that, we see our fair share of flops. But none has ever(?) been more egregious than this terrible, terrible display put on by Oregon’s Dillon Brooks:

It’s important to at least make it look like contact has been made before flailing backward. Brooks looks as though the court suddenly had electricity running through it, and he got shocked.
A silver lining: he got whistled for the infraction.
He should have to apologize to everyone today. EVERYONE.
