Vinny Del Negro: Clippers Are Not ‘Flop City’

The video clip below makes it somewhat difficult to buy into Clippers’ head coach Vinny Del Negro’s claim that his team isn’t prone to some pretty outlandish flopping. From the OC Register: “Clippers forward Reggie Evans might have over sold things a tad, reacting to what is clearly a foul by falling to the ground like every one of his vital organs stopped working all at once. It worked great, at first. Greivis Vasquez was hit with a flagrant two foul, meaning he would be ejected. But officials can review flagrant fouls, and the tape didn’t lie. The foul was almost instantly downgraded to a personal foul, something that’s almost unprecedented. After the game, Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro was asked about the play. ‘They called it flopping, acting, whatever,’ he said. ‘That was their call on that. Reggie had to go to the line and he made one of two and we moved on.’ But is Del Negro concerned that the Clippers are becoming infamous for their flopping? ‘We’re flopping a lot? I wish we would flop a lot. Maybe we’d get some charges,’ he said. ‘I don’t know anybody on our team that flops. It’s all around the league. I wouldn’t say our team is a flopping team at all — maybe one or two guys. If we get the call, I like it.’”

    lol “I don’t know anyone on our team who flops”. CP has mastered the art of flopping yet keeping his dribble alive because he knows 50% of the time officials aren’t going to buy it.

    That’s funny. “I don’t know anyone on our team that flops…maybe one or two guys”. Keep going Vinny.

    Vinny later stated that his optometrist suggested wearing glasses but he declined.

  • odg

    Am i the only one that sees Reggie getting hit twice in the chest by a fairly large guy?

    Im sure he exagerated to show the refs what was going on.
    The guy obviously reacted to the somewhat dirty, but legit screen by punching Reggie who then “flopped” to make the refs attentive of the hits he was taking.

    At least that’s my take on that vid.

    That situation makes me miss the old (90′s 80′s) NBA.
    This flopping is getting out of control and the NBA has to react before Basketball becomes Soccer in terms of acting.
