List Rules Only current NBA Players. No retired or collegiate players.

Who are the best (worst) floppers currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best "actors" playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current shot blockers and best current scorers, along with the best NBA three-point shooters playing today

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). 

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. 

Vote for the current players who flops the most in the NBA today, and add floppers missing from the list. You can also re-rank this list of NBA floppers in any order you want.
