  • Rory McIlroy Swings and Misses on a Chip from the Rough (Video)

    Rory McIlroy Swings and Misses on a Chip from the Rough (Video)

    Take note, amateur duffers. Even guys sponsored by Nike in nifty lime green-accented outfits have their crappy shots. Rory McIlroy swung and missed entirely on #9 at the Players Championship on Saturday. He whiffed on the ball, but it did move slightly. Like an inch. Which means it’s a stroke against him. Flop shots are […]

    Corey Brewer Fined for this Shameful, Shameful Flop (Video)

    Flopping in the NBA has become more prevalent in the past decade or so, but it’s nice to see that the league is taking pains to curb it, even if those efforts are often inconsistent. In last Wednesday night’s Clippers-Rockets game, Lester Hudson of LA put his hands on Corey Brewer to achieve some separation, […]

    Someone Tell Draymond Green This Elbow Didn’t Hit Him (Video)

    I think there should be a hard and fast rule: If you take a dive to blow out of proportion some light contact, you’re a p*ssy. However, if you take a dive after not being touched at all, you’re a p*ssy that should get ejected. Last night, guess what kind of p*ssy Draymond Green was […]

    PJ Hairston Flops Into Gregg Popovich’s Knees, Infamy (Video)

    I’ve seen some bad flops during my time, but this has to be one of the worst. It comes via Charlotte Hornets rookie guard PJ Hairston, who apparently has a lot to learn when it comes to the art of flopping. For starters, no one is going to buy your flop when you’re trying to […]

    This Tom Brady Flop Made Us Want to Scream at the TV (Video)

    A Tom Brady flop isn’t the oddest thing in sports. As decorated and dominating as the Pats QB is, you always get the feeling he’d sell out his dignity for one cheap penalty. Welp, after the Thursday night barnburner against the Jets, it’s pretty clear that a Tom Brady flop is a weapon in his […]

    Flopping Youth Basketball Player Obviously Watches Too Much NBA (Video)

    Earlier today we showed you a mix tape featuring the prodigious ball-handling of 8th grade basketball player Jordan McCabe. It was awesome, and you should go watch it. However, before you go do that, you might as well take a look at this video starring another kind of young basketball prodigy. We don’t know his name. […]

    LeBroning is the First Great Sports Meme of 2014 (Videos + GIFs)

    Everybody knows LeBron James is a flopper. He can deny it all he wants, but this isn’t some theory. Nobody has reasoned that the man flops. We’ve all seen it with our own eyes. Not once… Not twice… Not three times… Not four times… Not five times… Not…well, you get the idea. Dude flops all […]

    NBA Referee Gets Taken Out by a Flagrant Flop (Video)

    Let me just start by saying they have some classy fans in Oklahoma City. Last night, one of the referees for the game between the Thunder and Bulls got taken out and hit the floor pretty hard. However, instead of cheering—which you would expect in places like Chicago or Philadelphia—the Thunder fans reacted in horror, […]

    LeBron James Flops With 30-Point Lead Over Nigeria (Video)

    Talk about having no mercy! We already knew that LeBron James was more than willing to flop all over a basketball court in order to get a foul call, but is he capable of doing that sort of thing with a 30-point lead against a far inferior Nigerian men’s basketball team? He sure is! At […]
