I don't have a lot to say in this post but wanted to make you all aware of a great video over on Bullets Forever. It is an instructional video by Red Aurbach using 70s players from the Bullets and Celtics to demonstrate the virus that is flopping. It is interesting to put flopping in historical context and realize it isn't just a modern day problem.
If all refs took the approach that the ref in the video does, we wouldn't need rules cracking down on handchecking or that ridiculous half-circle in the key that rarely clarifies what is a charge or a blocking foul anyway.
I hope you enjoy the video asuch as I did and that someone else hs not referenced this yet. I found it via Truehoop. Here is the link to the Bullets Forever Fanpost:
