That is a clear flop — and one that got the call, which is why guys do this. It was a close game, there were three minutes left and the Pistons were up four, when Brandon Jennings had missed a floater and the Bucks’ Jeff Adrien grabbed the board and came down, Jennings was close to him, got brushed, and then fell to the ground. The referees called a foul on Adrien. By the way, the Pistons went on to win the game (not because of this call, but again, this is why guys flop). Jennings had been warned for flopping by the league back in December (against the Rockets) so for this one the league hit Jennings with a $5,000 fine.
