The topic of flopping has taken over the NBA news feed over the last few days and Miami Heat F Shane Battier was the latest NBA player to address the topic at today's shoot around.

"I don’t know how well it’s being policed," Battier said after Thursday's shootaround. "I think guys thought about it a lot, but whether it made a difference ultimately, I don’t know." 

"I think guys offensively still flop," Battier said. "I don’t think offensively flopping is called as much it could have been, I guess. The emphasis is on defensive flopping and I think that was called more, but offensive flopping is bad too. If you have to call one, you have to call the other."
