Comical Flopping

NBA players aren't gifted actors. It's true on the big screen (Dennis Rodman makes Jean-Claude Van Damme look like Paul Newman in Double Team) but also on the hardwood, where flops intended to draw fouls calls grew so ridiculous that the league implemented anti-flopping rules in 1997 and, for the 2012-2013 season, started issuing fines to those who went down like gangsters paid them to throw a fight.

The jab step was a great addition to a gamer's offensive arsenal, but you'll want to think twice about executing one when the defender on you is prone to jerking back like he's been struck by an assassin's bullet in Call of Duty.
