PROTIP: When Flopping, Flop In The Correct Direction

In today's Cavaliers-Celtics game, Boston partisans may have noticed some dodgy refereeing in the first half. They'd be wrong to interpret it as anything but just plain poor performance by the referees (come on: it's not like the NBA is capable of fixing games), but there was some palpable and justified disrespect for the refs all the same. So near the end of the half, Tony Allen grabbed a rebound, felt a brush of contact, and decided to "manufacture" a whistle and get to the free throw line.

One problem: Allen biffed his flop so badly that he fell in the exact opposite direction that he should have, looking less like the victim of a foul and more the victim of an invisible hand grenade. Observe:

Sure enough, the referee remained unconvinced that Imaginary Street Fighter Ryu had hit him with his Imaginary Hadoken, no foul was called, and Tony Allen has now officially delivered the worst acting performance in the history of the city of Boston. The previous title holder, of course, was the entirety of Gone Baby Gone. I hated that movie.
