Even on the Lance Stephenson scale, that is an epic flop.

It’s the opening minutes of the Bobcats eventual loss to the Warriors and Stephenson is trying to track Klay Thompson off a Harrison Barnes screen and in going so slaps himself in the face and falls to the ground (the contact with Barnes caused him to slap himself).

Stephenson got the call here and it was the right one — that is a moving screen by Barnes. But Born Ready exaggerated the contact to sell that. We know Stephenson isn’t afraid to flop to get the call. But this one made me laugh.
