Great, just what we needed...

Why you going to throw your Rocket ex-teammate under the bus like that.

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.

that doesn't make it right. so basically you're saying scola flops and the clippers flop more.

so scola is still wrong.

From the article:

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

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 was being semi-sarcastic. Battier is one of my favorite players. Guess I should have added a to be clear

Hardly anyone, that's why Okafor plays 5...

Battier probably assumed most NBA players wouldn't know what "egregious" means.

it's the leagues fault. If they didn't allow it.. then it wouldn't be a problem. If you can't beat them.. join em. I hate flopping but if it gives the other team an advantage then the Rockets need to channel their inner Vlade Divac and get those same advantages.

I knew exactly the thread on our forums he was referring to. A user had reacted prematurely to T-Will’s rough first half against the Spurs only to get clowned by the community for the rest of the game as Williams hit 7 of his last 9 shots in the second half.
