08:15 PM ET 06.07 | Mark Cuban seems to be made of money, and he also seems to be wildly passionate about winning in the NBA. Put those two things together and you have the reason why the Dallas Mavericks owner is funding a study that will look into the flopping epidemic plaguing basketball today. According to ESPN and SMU's official website, Cuban plans on giving $100,000 to Southern Methodist University for an 18-month study on flopping in the NBA. Cuban wants the NBA to get scientific about flops, and according to SMU biomechanics expert Peter G. Weyand, that's exactly what this study is going to try and do. If the NBA is as serious about stopping player from flopping as they say they are, this study should go a long way in clearing up the haziest question of all: what defines a flop? After scientists get a crack at it, we should have a definitive answer and the NBA will continue to run out of excuses as to why flops are still a big part of the game today.
