NBA Playoffs, Clippers vs. Grizzlies: Lob City? More Like Flop City

Flopping has been an art perfected by many throughout the history of basketball. Need a big defensive stop in a playoff game? Stand kind of close to the basket or ball, wait for the opposition to make a move and fall over, regardless of the amount of contact. And sometimes there isn't even any contact made!

With elimination on the line in tonight's Clippers vs. Grizzlies game, the flopping has gotten out of control at Staples Center. We have some fun GIFs of the madness after the jump!

Here's a fun one:

I'm not sure what Marc Gasol is doing here, but yeah, he needs a hug.
