Yes i admit lebron flops but not all the time like those 3 i mention so i think lebron will be fine not flopping. Manu, Harden, Griffin how ever will have more of a hard time not to flop again.

I've seen far more Lebron flops than Harden. Just because his ridiculous flops are more recent in our memories doesn't mean hes any worse than Bron.


Saying that, I was the first to admit Lebron grew up a ton last year and he's seemed to move away from the flopping.

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

Has anyone gotten hit with a flopping fine, yet?

Is there no place we can look this up? I refuse to believe no one has been hit with a flopping fine, yet. DeMarcus Cousins had a particularly horrible flop last night that was obviously fine-able. Are they just not enforcing the rule?

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

Both of those plays were actually fouls though (or should have been fouls). Barea took an elbow to the chest and an illegal moving screen was set against Sloan. The impact was exagerrated, sure, but can the league declare a flop and a foul on the same play?

If its exaggerating contact in hopes of getting a call, it falls directly under flopping.

Oh my, watch the Barea play again. A forearm was placed on his chest and he acted like Mike Tyson stuck him in the chin. It was ridiculous and he's done it every game. The refs wouldn't have called an offensive foul if he hadn't done it, so its a textbook example of what they're trying to eliminate.

For his second flopping offense, the NBA has fined Brooklyn's Reggie Evans $5,000, league source tells Y! Sports.

Evans is the first NBA player to be fined for flopping under the league's new guidelines.

Don't like this rule. They're taking away a funny part of the game. Look at Reggie go.

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

This rule has made the game so much better. You can see an incredibly noticeable difference in the flow of the NBA this year. This is one of the truly great rule changes in basketball history.

He's gonna keep getting fined. He flops on every play.
