Yeah, but that is mostly so players don't get hurt in basketball. Every once in a while you'll see a player just flat out sell a charge with his acting, but most of the time there was or would have been contact if he stands in. If a player really stood in and took a charge, they would be hurting pretty good. Besides there is a difference between acting hurt and just acting like you were knocked down.
