Flopping, it seems, is but one talent in the NBA player's acting repetoire. There is also the grunting, the yelling, as a player moves toward the basket and into the middle of a crowd. The louder the grunt, players believe, the more likely a foul will be called. And few grunt better than Vince Carter. "For me, it’s good, but if the guy I’m guarding does it, it’s bad" says Carter sheepishly. "It sells." Keyon Dooling's not so sure.
