Video: Wizards’ Mo Wagner blatantly flops on Giannis Antetokounmpo missed elbow
Washington Wizards center Mo Wagner will surely be in Shaqtin’ a Fool after flopping on Monday.
With less than five minutes remaining in regulation of the Wizards’ home game versus the Milwaukee Bucks at Capital One Arena, the 22-year-old big man resorted to unorthodox tactics against reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
During a battle for a rebound, Antetokounmpo’s right arm briefly made contact with the German big. Wagner proceeded to make the contact appear more than what it is. He flailed his arms and bopped his head as he raced back to the other end.

The Wizards’ in-house announcers, meanwhile, likened Wagner’s comical attempt to heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury. They also described Wagner’s shenanigans as “bad acting”.
The Bucks, meanwhile, are still the best team in the league with a 48-8 slate entering Monday’s match-up. The Wizards sit at ninth place in the East with a 20-35 record.
