Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

Tony Parker just got hit for leaping forward on the rebounding action.



I think that was blatant. Good call by the league office.

Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon were also officially warned by the league for other instances.

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

Anyone know the punishment schedule? Warning, then fine, then what?

I think they go up in increments of 5k.

Those looseball flops are really annoying. Love constantly gets calls doing it.

I will never understand why players flop, especially if it won't decide the outcome of the game. Flopping is for fishes.

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

I still don't understand how this helps. So a players flops, gets a call which may end up winning the game for his team and they get warned? How does that help the team that took the loss??

It's not going to cut it out 100%, but if it decreases flopping even 5% it's better than nothing.

Have to admit this is true. The rule has made an extremely noticeable difference in the style and quality of play. It's been far more effective than I anticipated.

Re: NBA Penalizes Flopping

Funny because Tyreke Evans had a pretty bad flop at the end of the 3rd of that game. Came right after Barnes missed a wide open layup and was a huge momentum changer.

I hope the NBA allows fines to increase for repeat offenders. Some of this stuff is beyond egregious.
