But I very seldom see a player that deserves a PC when they are that far under the basket. Usually they are just moving in to cause contact, and better yet they flop to make it seem like they got murdered under the basket.

I do not take the attitude that you can never have a PC foul under the basket, but the defenders are just trying to cause some contact. I think the rule is contradictory to say on one hand on a dunk you can hang on the rim because someone is underneath them, but if they release the rim and make contact, they should be called for a PC foul. That does not make sense to me at least.
