Shaq must’ve been sick to his stomach after watching his understudy flop like this.

    Listen, I LOVE Derek Fisher, but my man has been an epic flopper much of his career. He had this sh*t coming.

  • http://fjsdklf.com Jukai

    So, shouldn’t the NBA be fining Amare right now? I’d fine him several million after that.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Several mil? Not that much, gut I could definitely see the League fining STAT. This is flopping on another level.

    pure comedy. reminds of those tumblers in those old silent movies.

  • JE

    haha, that’s pretty funny.

    He did that against the Pacers too. Very Buster Keaton indeed.

  • Wongtouski

    Man I love STAT but come on play like a man lol…….this flop and that one early against the Pacers are just ridiculous (but funny)

    I blame Divac…

  • thesubwayconnection

    Amanu Stoudamire. You heard it here first. And he can’t be Standing Tall And Talented if he’s always falling down.

    Shaq is Amare’s understudy these days.

    That’s really bad… Amare seems like far to intense of a player to pull some BS like that. Is this worse than this (similar) Boom Dizzle flop? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTdERYOtqsg

    dfish and kobe are some of the worst floppers in the league. kobe esp. on offense, remember the flying elbow “follow through”?

  • Kas

    A’ma’r'es career is turning into a flop pretty soon. all that talent, averages 3 rpg for his career, talking bout wantin to be the man without showing desire to improve. he needs to get a real job and leave basketball to basketball players.

  • matt

    did he went to acting school over the summer to improve his skills?

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Obviously Derek Fisher should look into a new career demolishing buildings with his bare hands and stopping runaway locomotives.

  • MSkittle

    He looked like Mr. Perfect

  • tealish

    Sigh. That was pathetic. Funny, but pathetic all the same.

  • EC

    Manu is somewhere smiling

  • Mike

    That was no flop. No way.

  • Jess


  • Kieran

    wow you must be short on news today

  • Todd Spehr

    Someone mentioned it earlier (and it may be irrelevant point in this particular thread) but Fisher flops on a Euro-ish level. He’s pretty darn good…

  • Gord

    The flop when Travis Diener “pushed” him was 100x better…if only because it was Travis Diener

  • Anton

    I was expecting Sasha to convulse in pain on the bench

  • tinchek

    the man.the legend.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    That wasn’t a frickin’ flop! Yeah, he can dunk on everyone and throw their shot ten rows into the stands, but bump into a point guard who is eight inches shorter? How can you expect him NOT to fall down???

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/mandiixoxo Amanda

    Moose, thats exactly what I was going to say!
    And if I was Shaq, I would’ve given him a good, hard smack to the head.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    Haha, thanks, Amanda. And I’m afraid your advice wouldn’t work out for PHO . . . a good, hard smack to the head from Shaq must be like getting hit with a cannonball at full speed. I think they want to keep STAT in their lineup, no? :)

  • http://rage.com KURUPTED

    Come on Derek fisher is the biggest flopper. I can find 1000 videos where he flops. Who understand you guys. A couple of years ago they a laker player fouled the crap out of barry during the playoffs and the reffs didn’t call it because he didn’t sell it. Every espn analysis was saying it was barry’s fault for not selling it. Now Stoudamire sells it and gets critized for it. Fish threw pushed him so he wanted to let the refs see what he was doing.

  • GGG

    What goes around comes around….

  • j-smoov 5

    HAHAHA. :D

  • KobeWearsThreeRings

    kurupted: watch an nba game, there are shoves and pats like that after every shot. its a pretty ridiculous call, but the refs probably only saw the second half of the fall and not the high-larity of the slip on the banana moment. and barry should have sold it, but any team with bruce bowen on it shouldnt get those calls anyway. you got to keep the cheating even.

  • Static

    d@mn…no wonder Fisher drains from three, that left hand is frickin awesome…or STAT is the new scarecrow

  • http://www.bbaxn.com Darksaber

    What the hell is up with Goggles this season. He did the same thing in his 47 Point Pacer game last month, and to another lil Guard none the less.. This is shamefull behavior for such a powerdunker.

  • Jacob

    hahahaha go amare!

  • chintao

    The behavior is reprehensible, but you have to admire the skill in the execution. Co-sign BothTeamsPlayedHard re: Buster Keaton

  • K3v1n

    Thats was funny and pathetic…….Amare will never be “The guy”.He’ll always be a sidekick.

  • shaya

    Honestly though how often do you see the Suns flopping? I think after all the Spurs losses they are allowed a few here and there.

  • http://thesportsdiaryonline.blogspot.com Roy

    Stat must be watching a lot of Vlade Divac’s flop highlights…. :D

  • http://www.hoopmixtape.com Simon S.Y Lawy

    that’s pretty funny…

  • Young Chris MP3

    Amare on Fisher has nothing on Baron on Okur. We need to upload that video.

  • dfrance83

    Youtube has plenty of flops, I’ve been laughing my a$$ off linking from that B-diddy one, then he had the nerve to use Memo to get up after the flop… priceless! look at Amares feet tho, they come right out from under him with no delay, the mans a pro!!!

  • Sarah

    He’s done this a couple times now. What a b*tch.

    The Basketball Gods, in all their wisdom, see floppers from on high. In their omniscience, they witnessed a career of flops from Derek Fisher. They saw that he had played for the jazz. And they smote him, for flopping begets flopping. He was given a technical foul, and lo, it was good.

  • http://www.bbaxn.com Darksaber

    Basketball Gods, hmm? Bill Simmons, is that you posing as “nick” on slamonline? :-)

  • underdog

    D-12 is no superman anymore. Got-Fish is.

    amare must have slipped on a wet floor or something

  • Phoenix Son

    After years of “flopping agony”, the league rule should allow flopping if it’s against Derek Fisher or Manu Ginobili.
