“Let’s Clean This Thing Up. Let’s Not Hurt The Game": Red Auerbach’s Anti-Flopping Video

http://deadspin.com/5915649/lets-clean-this-thing-up-lets-not-hurt-the-game-red-auerbachs-anti+flopping-video

It was the mid '70s, and Red Auerbach wanted to teach the basketball world to stop flopping. To get his message across, he called in a dream team of Elvin Hayes, Clem Haskins, Wes Unseld, Paul Silas, Mike Riordan, and referee Mendy Rudolph, who was named head of officials and inducted into the Hall of Fame despite his crippling gambling problem. (The NBA's always been hilarious.)
