Paul, who was one of the biggest names singled out in the NBA’s official video introducing its anti-flopping policy, takes home the Flop of the Year with this masterpiece. What sets this apart is the sheer cunning. Paul wisely picks out Cousins, a noted hothead and valuable player, as his target. What better person to flop against than the NBA referees’ least-favorite player? Paul then initiates the contact by lightly touching Cousins before flailing and screaming in a jumping motion that carries him roughly five feet backward. Cousins responds with a classic “get off me” dismissal as play continues. This is the best of the best (or the worst of the worst): thought-out, proactive, ridiculous, funny, shameless and shameful. A worthy winner in every respect.

DeMarcus Cousins is ejected in the third quarter due to this elbow that landed to the back of Dunleavy’s head. After watching the video, I do not believe that was intentional. However, because of Demarcus’ reputation in the league, it was enough to get him thrown out.
