Nuggets’ Jusuf Nurkic Gets Technical For Taunting a Flopping Player
Jusuf Nurkic just did what every fan and player wanted to do to a flopping player: while driving to the hoop, he slightly bumped into the Suns’ Markieff Morris. Of course, the Suns player went down, but no charge was called and Turkic scored an easy basket.
Afterwards, Nurkic decided to grab the ball and hand it to the downed player. Essentially taunting him for taking such a flop and failing. However, the ref saw this and instantly gave the Nuggets’ athlete a technical foul.
As a teammate, I would not be happy with Jusuf’s decision; as a person annoyed with flopping in the NBA, I am ecstatic that he did that.
