Chris Paul might need to be reminded about the NBA's new flopping policy.
Early in the third quarter of a game against the Kings on Wednesday, the Clippers' star point guard showed off the sort of acting skills that made him such a star in those Cliff Paul ads. After a missed 3-pointer from Matt Barnes, the Kings gained possession and started moving down the court. CP3 was standing right in front of DeMarcus Cousins, who seemed to be taking his time in transition. Paul subtly put his arm in front of Cousins and then flailed even though Cousins barely moved.
No foul was called.
This time, several people noticed Paul's embellishment and reacted on Twitter.
