Basketball or Soccer best actors?

May 03, 2021 11:44AM
Which do you think are the best at faking injury? I have to go with soccer.

I think Basketball may *win as far as the number of fake injuries but I'm sorry... basketball player just don't compare to the drama theatrics of soccer players

(*.. simply because they play more games)

I've often wondered... with the soccer dramatic injury displays if any player has ACTUALLY injured him/herself while performing? Some of them are truly extraordinary, (search YouTube for confirmation) with limbs flying about, ground pounding, slapping oneself on the head,

Some pro wrestlers used to slice themselves with razor blades, (harmless but cuts that would bleed profusely), so I can't help but wonder if a soccer player, or basketball player, has ever considered, or actually tried, this tactic?

To be fair... in soccer, at least in the World Cup which is pretty much the only soccer I watch (not counting high school soccer), they have cut back drastically on the fake injury theatrics.
