Who are the best (worst) floppers currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best "actors" playing right now, many of whom will put their skills to work in the upcoming Space Jam sequel. The softest NBA players on this list can make or break a team's performance on the court. They are usually fragile players who fall to the ground from a slight shove or wave their hands like they were shot by a sniper in the building. These aspiring actors are experts at getting the foul calls, sinking their free throws, and whining like crybabies. Although flops are fined, these superstars keep flopping their way to a win. So, who is the biggest flopper in the NBA right now?

The biggest floppers who are currently playing in the NBA are actually among the overall top current NBA players too. LeBron James, James Harden, Blake Griffin, and Chris Paul come to mind immediately. As do NBA point guards Trae Young and Marcus Smart.

Vote for the current players who flops the most in the NBA today. You can also re-rank this list of NBA floppers in any order you want. Check out these lists of best current shot blockers and best current scorers, along with the best NBA three-point shooters playing today
