I have a better idea and solution than the link:

Ballscientist proposed that flops should be punished with technical fouls, fines, and suspensions.

First flop - 1 technical foul (all flops will carry over to the future games)

2nd flop - ejected

3rd flop - ejected + 25,000 fine

4th flop - suspension for one game.

5th flop - suspension for two game.

6th flop - suspension for three game.

and so on .....

Your rules would certainly make players think twice about hitting the deck. With that being said, I like your version BS. Watching the Heat/Celtics made me cringe everytime I saw Pietrus flop and get the call in his favor.

I don't want referees having to make split second calls that lead to ejections. Are we going to have instant replay reviews for every flop? But I would be totally ok with accumulated flop points leading to suspensions if flops were determined by video review by the league office.
