David Stern is fining guys for flopping, so a U.S. player has to go to Europe to get in some serious flopping time. Here’s Drew Gordon, who plays for Partizan Belgrade of the Serbian League, taking the fake offensive foul from a Lietuvos Rytas player in Euroleague action on Thursday.
Intensely embarrassed by this are the University of New Mexico (where Gordon played after transferring from UCLA during his sophomore year) and Archbishop Mitty High School (San Jose, Calif., where I watched him play in the WCAL, witnessing hardly any flops).
Please note that whomever put together this video thought it would be funny to add a gunshot at the end: it wasn’t my idea. Humor fail.
