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

What makes him a noted flopper: There's a fun website called topflops.com that tracks NBA players who flop. Stevenson dominated a segment with five attempted flops in a playoff game. A bizarre character off and on the court, "Nutso" certainly isn't afraid to flop --- not when he is known for trash-talking LeBron James the past few years.
Best Hollywood movie title to honor his work: Deception (2008).
Best song: Next Time I Fall (Peter Cetera).
Best flop quote: "They're great actors and they sell it.That's what they're supposed to do," Stevenson said about the flopping techniques of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade during the Finals. "We've got to take hard fouls, but if you touch them they're so dramatic you might get a flagrant 2."
