    Did you miss the clippers games? Superstars flop more than him.

    Typical cheapshot by a classless thug.

    By reading the article you can tell Battier wasn't taking a "cheapshot". Either way, what he says is true, so no reason to get bent out of shape.

    From the article:

    "I love Luis Scola, but he’s the most egregious flopper on the offensive end."

    So whats the problem?

    Oh wait, I remember in the chat room after the Clippers game, there was a couple of members who said you can't be a Rockets fan and take shots at specific members of the team at the same time but I wont mention these members names as they are popular members of the board, isn't that right, Mfan12 and Dr?

    I would take someone known for defense over someone known for offense any day of the week.

    Points will come, stopping points is where its at. Especially in the playoffs.

    ie.. I would take Okafer at the 4 instead of Scola.

    Who else is known for their defense but not offense at the 4?

    I couldn't watch the second half because I had to work.

    That doesn't change the fact that Scola flops like crazy, though. It's gotten to the point where any time he dribbles into the paint, I know he's going to throw himself on the ground for no reason.

    Not that I don't love and respect the guy, I just wish he'd stop doing that.

    I wish Lowry would stop doing it too, and he's my favorite player in the NBA.

    Context helps. A lot.

    I'll bet Scola agrees and would find this quote amusing. He probably didn't use Kevin Martin and Kyle Lowry, also egregious floppers on offense, as examples because he's not as good of friends with them.

    His logic off.

    Raja Bell and CP3 don't have hair but they are great at offensive flopping.

    Gino is balding and he is the best.

    Aww, Shane just wants our attention guys. He can shove it where the sun don't shine. I had a lot of respect for him, and I felt really bad that we traded him, but he more than made up for it by being a Heatician ring chaser. All the class he had, gone... He can say what he wants about Scola, I'm done listening...
