In professional sports, which players are more convincing actors when faking an injury to claim a foul?
Faking an injury in soccer is a frequently used tactic
Basket ball players
Tom Brady is the best flopper. Dude is probably the biggest crybaby America has ever produced.
Basketball floppers take the win in my opinion.
Bball is more convincing. Occasionally you'll see a good soccer flop, cart to sidelines, and in on next play.
The Utah Jazz from the 90s comes to mind.
soccer. though, to be fair, in basketball, it's seldom faking an injury. it's more taking a fall to draw attention to a charge. they get right back up.
I had originally voted basketball, in line with what Diogenes wrote above, but I changed my answer when I read your comment, then re-read the question. Basketball players (generally) don't fake injury, they embellish the contact. Soccer does both.
