TALE OF THE TAPE

Bigger Floppers: Soccer vs. NBA

NBA
Soccer
San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat
Real Madrid CF v Real Sporting de Gijon  - Liga BBVA
Top Dog
LeBron James — He's basketball's Piccasso when it comes to flopping. Simply put, he's a masterful artist. His legendary kills have coined the term 'LeBroning.'
Winner Cristiano Ronaldo — Heck of a player. Heck of a flopper. This guy flops like a fish out of water.
Runner Up
Winner Blake Griffin — Had 'Griffining" not already been taken by a certain Redskins player, it may very well have been a thing in the NBA thanks to the Clippers star's antics.
Angel Di Maria — Not familiar with his name? No problem. All you need to know is this Argentinian star can take a tumble like almost no other.
Honorable Mention
Shane Battier — From Duke to duped... as in duping the refs. Apparently that's what he learned in Durham.
Winner Dani Alves — Playing for the host nation of Brazil this guy could win an Academy Award for his performances.

The Winner Is

Real Madrid CF v Real Sporting de Gijon  - Liga BBVA
Winner Soccer
2 out of 3

Sorry basketball fans. This title belongs to the men who have been flopping, diving, acting since birth. Enjoy the World Cup!
