The ONLY difference is that jack doesn’t flop (and if he stands firm enough sometimes the foul is called on him), and that Wisconsin player flopped worse than an Italian soccer player in the penalty box.

Just embarrassing, both what the player did, and the fact that the ref fell for it (though they usually do).

Just like if you stand there with good defensive position and an offensive player charges into you while going to the rim but you stand firm, maybe get pushed backwards a foot or two but you don’t go foul. But if you flop backwards like you just got hit with a cannonball on the same exact play: Charge! Same thing with hand checks - many of them don’t get called, but if you snap your head back, it gives you at least a 50% larger chance of getting he call. It should be an automatic technical against the flopper.

It also should be illegal for basketball fans to complain about soccer, because basketball is way, way worse on simulation and flopping.

Drives me crazy - if they just fixed this bs the sport of b-ball would be so much more appealing.
