Doc On Anti-Flopping: ‘I Think The NBA Is Doing It The Right Way’
Chris Paul became the latest player to receive a warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping rules on Tuesday, based on this play that took place during the Clippers’ win over the Timberwolves earlier this week.
But you won’t hear any complaints about it from Doc Rivers.
Speaking before the Clippers faced the Thunder on Wednesday, Rivers said he believes the league is handling the issue correctly, and that it’s even natural to a certain extent for a player to exaggerate the contact that’s made to try to get a call from an official.
