Frank Vogel: Miami Heat The “Biggest Flopping Team In The NBA”
Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel called the Miami Heat the “biggest flopping team in the NBA” and said that he’ll be interested to see “how much flopping [the officials] reward,” according to ESPN.com.
“They are the biggest flopping team in the NBA,” Vogel told reporters at Thursday’s practice, according to ESPN. “It’ll be very interesting (to see) how the referees officiate the series and how much flopping they reward.
According to ESPN, the Heat drew the fourth-most charging calls in the NBA during the regular season.
“Every drive to the basket, they have guys not making a play on the ball, but sliding in front of drivers,” Vogel said. “Oftentimes they’re falling down even before contact is even being made. It’ll be interesting to see how the series is officiated.”
