Although in recent times basketball has caught up a bit, this video shows us why soccer still remains king of the pathetic flops.

By Robby Sabo

We remember all the greats of all-time.

Reggie Miller made it an art-form during his days in the NBA and with the Indiana Pacers. Manu Ginobli has carried out the tradition in more recent times. Even LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and the superstars of the NBA have brought it to an unsettling, epic proportion.

We, of course, are talking about the art of “flopping.”

The move that confused idiot referees into thinking a foul just occurred. The move that is often accompanied with a yell or a scream that confuses us with a very serious injury.

While the NBA has gotten terrible through the years, there is one sport who still remains king. We of course are talking about soccer.

In soccer, players fall to the ground like they’ve been beaten with a pitchfork. Hooligans call it an “art-form,” Americans call it ridiculous.

Check out this epic flop by Ahmed Elmohamady:
