Anderson Varejao: ‘I’m not Flopping Anymore’

News that the NBA is likely to adopt a policy that cracks down on flopping — the art of exaggerating contact to draw an offensive foul — does not matter much to Anderson Varejao.
“I’m not flopping anymore,” Varejao said. “I used to flop a little bit.”
A little bit? And the sun rises every day, a little bit, too.
According to NBA spokesman Tim Frank, the crackdown is likely to involve post-game review of plays — potentially using fines to enforce the rule prohibiting the art of extreme exaggeration of contact. A final determination by the competition committee has not yet been made.
“It could be [a good thing] when it’s ridiculous, when the guy really flops,” Varejao said. “The referees, they’re not going to see everything. Sometimes a guy flops and they call a foul. I think when it’s really, really bad, I think it’s a good idea.”
As for how the rule changes might affect Varejao’s game? It doesn’t matter because he doesn’t flop, right?
“Oh, I don’t know, let’s wait and see how it’s going to be,” he said.
