    Manu is a flopper, but in fairness, they did collide pretty hard.

    Like Sam said, sure, Manu is a Flopper Deluxe, but that didn't look like a flop to me. Ginobili (like our own Luis Scola, his good friend), has been flopping for so many years that I think he just naturally falls that way whenever he has anything resembling a collision. And that was a real collision. You could easily find a far better example of Manu's flopping dexterity with a search.

    Man, Manu is not even half the flopper as those douchebags CP3 and Blake Griffin are. I don't get why he gets so much hate.

    Manu has been injured so I'm sure you haven't watched him as much lately but what are you talking about he flops alottt. He was flopping a bunch last night.

    Because he's been an ALL NBA 1st teamer in flopping for the majority of his career, that's why.

    Is it wrong that I find it funny? It looks hilarious how they both run full speed and then meet right in the middle. Lol

    Are you trying to imply that Manu is not a flopper because he actually do sometimes collide with other players on an NBA court? That's the kind of thinking would indeed allow one to think Gay is on Durant's level.
