P.J. Hairston Flies And Flops Into Coach Pop

This might be the least believable flop I've ever seen in the NBA.

  1. P.J. Hairston waited, took a half-hop backwards, and then threw himself to his back
  2. Tony Parker didn't put nearly his full weight into Hairston; he was already stopping and reversing before Hairston began his flop
  3. Parker is 6'2", 180; Hairston is 6'6", 230
  4. Hairston pretends he was hit SO hard that he got thrown into Coach Pop on the sideline, from basically the middle of the floor

The refs didn't fall for Hairston's shenanigans, making no call on the play. But Hairston will surely be fined $5,000 by the NBA tomorrow: it is his second flop of the season.
