Tony Wroten received a warning for his flop against the Toronto Raptors, proving that his acting skills are almost as broken as his jump shot.
Despite being wide open at the start of his release, Wroten falls down, attempting to draw the shooting foul. Who knows? Maybe he was just tired? His high-energy game is surely exhausting, and with Michael Carter-Williams missing yet another game, Wroten has been asked to carry the load. Tony Wroten lying on the ground is still a more efficient NBA player than Lorenzo Brown.
Considering he made the shot, maybe Wroten is on to something here. Falling down might be the necessary conclusion to a more efficient shooting stroke. He’s making only 25% of his 3′s on the season, but he’s a perfect 1-1 when purposefully falling down. Sure it hurt’s his transition defense, but no one on the Sixers gets back on D anyway.
Of course if he is caught flopping again, he risks a $5000 fine from the league office, but that’s a small price to pay for progress. I’m starting the official Tony Wroten Flop Shot Campaign, now who’s with me?
