It is safe to say that basketball is not what it once was. It is no longer a sport with grown men battling to get into the lane and score the ball, nor is it filled with vicious battles for rebounds as it was in the 90s. The players are beginning to look more involved in a dancing competition than in an athletic competition. It’s as if the sport has taken a page out of soccer’s book and has become a flopping fest.

Some common floppers should win Oscars for their performances, and you may surprised to know that some of your favorite players are repeat offenders of the flop. Here is a list of the 20 most ridiculous basketball flops:
