Sports Word of the Week! FLOP
Flop (Basketball) – When a player exaggerates and purposely falls to the ground after receiving little or no physical contact from an opponent. The player is acting as if the opposing player caused him to fall, faking a foul to deceive the officials. This can backfire on the player. Players who are caught flopping are assessed a foul.
