Boston’s Marcus Smart with ridiculous, hysterical flop (that should draw a fine)

13 Comments

Marcus Smart has a reputation for flopping to try and draw calls. But this one is hysterical.

Jae Crowder is shooting the corner three, and Smart tries to slide in baseline on the opposite side looking for a rebound. Kyle Korver is doing his job on the weak side as the shot goes up putting a body on Celtics looking for an offensive board. The second he touches Smart the Celtics’ guard goes down like the sniper in the grassy knoll shot him.

The league has slowed down handing out flopping warnings during the season (they would tell you their program of publicizing them has worked) but during the playoffs the warnings are gone and the first violation is a $5,000 fine. Smart has earned that, and we should see it come down soon.
