Nearly everybody does it. Flopping, that is.

Soccer, famously known for its players taking phantom dives to get calls, has nothing on the NBA anymore.

"We have seen throughout these playoffs some outstanding acting by our top-notch players," color commentator Reggie Miller said during the last postseason.

Takes one to know one. Miller, in his time, was one of the league's best floppers.

"The master speaking," play-by-play analyst Marv Albert said, taking a playful dig at Miller.

In 2008, the NBA threatened to fine players for theatrical flopping, but little, if any punishment, has been doled out.

This week, we will rank the NBA's current top 10 floppers.

What makes him a noted flopper: Here's all you need to know: On YouTube, there's a "Pau Gasol Flop MixTape," chronicling his exploits. Gasol is painful to watch at times because it appears he is being tortured each time he's touched. His specialty is working in the post, going up for a shot and then flailing in all directions against a defender, trying to draw a foul.

Best Hollywood movie title to honor his work: Ishtar (because it was a big flop).

Best song: I Fall To Pieces (Patsy Cline).

Best flop quote: Brendan Jackson, Celtics Hub, June 8, 2010: "Can we start a petition and gain some traction for what can only be known as the infamous Flop. Give credit to Pau Gasol. He made the game saving play. Despite a terrific and gutsy performance from Derek Fisher in the fourth quarter, it was Gasol sending himself to the floor with such authority that really put this game out of reach for the Celtics."
