    I agree, three games is not nearly enough. If the HC was any kind of leader he would have buried that cheating flopper on the bench for the rest of the year to teach him a lesson.

    We all know Bo Ryan would not have tolerating cheapening the game with all that flopping. I'd be looking for a coaching change soon from Big Barry.

    Because i disagree with you ! I want cheap plays punished even if it is a player or a team i follow. I thought Grayson Allen crossed the line with his thirst to win at any cost and i think Brad has as well. Several flops have put players at risk, tripping is really cheap.

    I agree that tripping is cheap, and injuries can occur during hard charges or blocking fouls. However I fail to see how "flops have put players at risk". Although not the dictionary definition, my "sports definition" of flopping is when an athlete exaggerates his motions, especially falling down, after not being hit particularly hard. How does that put players at risk?
    I'm the type of guy a girl could take home to meet her dog.

    I agree with you. Not a risky move, just cheap and poor sportsmanship.

    An aside to this whole discussion: Since when did it become commonplace to deceive and openly lie to referees to try to gain an advantage in sports? I know I’m an old fart, but this is a general pet peeve of mine. When we played pick-up basketball and football in my youth, we relied on the honesty of every player. If you touched the ball last, you offered that up. If you hacked someone on a jump shot, you willingly admitted it. I hate this culture of lying, and Davison embodies the worst of this culture. I know, this ship has already sailed, but I still hate it. One more thing: I love the rare occasions when a basketball player offers a hand to a fallen opponent. I guess that’s also not “cool” in today’s trash-talk, in-your-face sports culture. Ok, done with my rant. Now you youngsters can rip me.

    For at least 70 years, bg. Your backyard ballgame is not very high stakes.

    No. Sportsmanship is one of the life lessons of playing sports.

    That’s what I was taught, but apparently that’s not the case anymore.

    Agreed. Class acts still trump barn yard ball.

    Comparing Brad Davison taking charges in which he is the one taking the punishment to Grayson allen is beyond absurd.
