    We btch a lot about diving.  For years, basketball fans have been talking about how bad it is in the NBA.  I have't watched a basketball game since Bird retired, so I wasn't aware the extent that these fools dive.

    These are truly amazing.  I really can't believe they call themselves professionals.



    Soccer n basketball = jokes

    This is true.  It horrible that its true though, if these two sports took that nonsense out of the game they would both be highly entertaining and fun as hell to watch!

    I think that's why I rail against diving so much it made the NBA unwatchable and a complete joke IMO. Star players always get foul calls and never foul.

    Boston's own Paul Pierce is one of the worst, if not the worst, diver in the league. He made a career out of it.

    Overall, way too much diving and no traveling calls....ever.

    Just amazing.  If it comes to the NHL to that level, I'm done following it.

    What a pile of frauds.

    As much as I hate basketball, at leat they fined 3 players for "flopping" the other night including Lebraun James. Wish the NHL would start this for dives.

    I stopped watching basketball on a regular basis a long time ago, partly because of the diving.

    I do watch soccer still - but the diving almost ruins it for me completely. However, I find that the MLS has a lot less than the European leagues, so it makes for better watching for me. Granted the talent level isn't as high as the European or South American leagues, but there's more hard working players and culturally diving is not as accepted in the MLS. Sure it still happens, but compared to the Italian league or the Premiership? The floppers are killing those leagues for me.

    (Oh and travelling is still a rule? I assumed they just took it off the books. You mean you can still only take three steps for a layup or dunk? Someone should tell the NBA that)

    Disgraceful.  A league with any integrity would pass out fines and suspensions for such nonsense.

    I never watch basketball any more, so I wouldn't even know how bad it is.  For some strange reason I can still enjoy soccer sometimes, but in addition to the diving, the fake injuries make me insane.  

    Can you even imagine a scenario in hockey where a player goes off on a stretcher and then comes back in the game 5 minutes later?  Inconceivable, and if it happened, the subject would probably take a prompt beating from the other team, and maybe one from his own teammates.  As he should.

    Hopefully both the league and the fists of opposing players continue to deter this garbage in the NHL for a long time.

    I'll watch soccer hilites when the ref is running for his life from the players, crowd and probably the vendors too because of not calling the right dive. Most enjoyable !

    Where else can you get that type of entertainment.

    Lynchmobs chasing refs........bring the family.

    Is this a 'pot calling the kettle black' moment or 'people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones' one?

    Criticizing the NBA for something equally as prevalent in the NHL is pretty funny.  Do we have to start naming names or teams that relish in 'the dive'?

    Why do Bruins fans direly despise the Habs and Canucks....let's dive into that one!

    They did, 3 players got fined last game including James.  I hate the league and do not watch it, but this is a step in the right direction.  I wish the NHL would fine obvious diving.

    I did not watch one second of any basketball this year. At any level. I could not name five Celtics.

    I would never defend basketball for the diving that goes on in that game at the NBA level, however, when a hockey message board criticiizes that game when the same issue is prevalent in the game of hockey, that was the basis of my comment of the 'pot calling the kettle black'.

    It is unprofessional that NBA & NHL players have to stoop to acting to gain an edge...it used to be that athletes had pride in themselves and would want to win on talent first.
