Seems like he has perfected a more subtle version of Reggie's move and played the refs like a violin yesterday. Stu and Billy Mac didn't even mention it once, but every time he fell after taking a three, he was kicking his foot out enough to make contact and then fall.

So not only would he have not gotten those free throws, they should all have been offensive fouls. Did anyone else notice he was doing this? This was beyond simple flopping.

No $hit! I was watching the game (and wishing for Artest to make an appearance) but didn't notice the "Kick Out"

this era of NBA refs are just making calls on players' reputations. Harden, CP3, Derozen shoot a ton of free throws each game mostly due to their reputation calls.

When's the last time the NBA handed down a flopping technical? Remember those? If you don't remember I can't blame you as they only seemed to exist for one season after the league vowed to cut down on flopping.
