Check Out Kemba Walker’s Game-Changing Flop (Video)
There is no denying the fact that Kemba Walker is amazing. He is probably the best player in college basketball right now and he has his UConn Huskies rolling as they have won their last eight games in a row, capturing the Big East title and a spot in the Elite Eight along the way.
But as good as Walker may be, does he lose some respect for that game-changing flop he took last night midway through the second half of yesterday’s Sweet 16 game against San Diego State?
With the Aztecs holding a 4-point lead and the momentum on their side, UConn called a timeout to sort things out. As Walker made his way to the Huskies’ bench, he bumped shoulders with San Diego’s Jamaal Franklin and hit the deck immediately. The officials would eventually call a technical foul on Franklin and Walker would go on a tear from there, as UConn built a comfortable lead and held on for the 74-67 victory.
So what do you think? Did Kemba flop? Check out the slow-motion replay below, along with an analysis from ESPN’s SportsCenter.
