Soccer players get a bad reputation as being the biggest fakers who will fall to the ground and pretend to have an injury in order to gain an advantage. However basketball is trying to give them a run for their money as the most fraudulent phonies.
In case you missed the Barako Bull Energy Boosters game against the Petron Blaze Boosters in the Philippine Basketball Association you missed the craziest sports flop of all time. Barako 6'11" center Mick Pennisi got into a tussle with Petron's Will McDonald. Then in an eruption of frustration McDonald threw the ball at Pennisi's head. A full second passed before Pennisi reacted and flopped onto the floor. McDonald was ejected for a flagrant foul and Pennisi was instantly awarded a nomination for the Best Supporting Actor.
