Winner Basketball Flopping
2 out of 3

Basketball is the KING of flopping. Although soccer flopping is more intense and wastes about five minutes of everyones lives every time it happens, flopping in the NBA occurs consistently every game. Athletes need to take more pride in their sport and just stop flopping all together.
