    Not that long ago a Spurs player laid a much worse cheap shot on a league MVP in a game that was basically over. The league decided to reward the Spurs for the cheap shot by gift wrapping an NBA Championship for them.

    If any team has karma coming to them in that realm it's the Spurs, they have one more title than they earned. The biggest shot of Robert Horry's career didn't even involve a basketball.

    Only difference is no one gave lecramp a cheap shot. Chalmers deliberately elbowed Parker in the ribs. See the difference? Did you also notice the difference that Parker was fighting to stay in the game, but the coach could see that he was truly hurt, and took him out for a few minutes. Parker even refused to sit down for a while, he wanted back in so much. And lecramp on the other hand was raising his hands every 2 seconds trying to get out, even before the big cramp.

    Saw Wade got fined 5,000 for his acting job. I didn't see it live last night but saw it today. That maybe the most pathetic flop / act job I've seen.

    $5000 is not enough for a guy that makes 8 figures per year. That should be reviewable and they should be given T's/suspension. It has no place in the game.

    It's just not fair that a guy like Ginobili, someone who always plays fairly and honestly and would never think of doing something as distasteful as flopping, gets penalized for Wade's dastardly deeds. There's no justice in this world!

    When is the last time Ginobli got fined for flopping? Just curious.

    To put it politely, this guy is an idiot.

    I'm glad they didn't give in to his flop at the end of the game. Trying to let acting decide a game is frustrating. He is by far the biggest actor on the spurs. I'd say the heat have at least 3 Hollywood actors. Its a big part of why they annoy me. I'm in support of the fines. Just make them bigger. Even when the ref doesn't bite, they should still get fined.

    Couldn't care less who flops, they should also be punished for leflopping.

    Right. And the only way to do it is to put in a stronger deterrent. Five grand means nothing to someone like Dwayne Wade or Manu Ginobili, but you know what might? An automatic one game suspension. It's excessive, but if you really want flopping out of the game that would do it.

    That would probably do it, but man I would hate to see a series decided because of that. I wouldn't mind allowing refs to review possible flopping situations and give either a regular or technical foul to the player after the fact. That would be a real deterrent.

    Re: *** Official 2014 NBA Playoffs Thread ***

    As for the game tonight, it's a big one. The winner of Game 3 of the Finals when the series is tied has won 30 of 36 previous Finals. We're going to find out just how much depth the Spurs really have too. I think Belinelli is on his way out of the rotation, can Patty Mills handle big minutes on the road in the Finals? Duncan looked worn out at the end of Game 2, I don't think he can handle getting 38+ mins every night at this point in his career. It looked like we were starting to see the return of the Ginobili of last year's Finals at the end of Game 2, turnovers, bad shot selection, I'm hoping that carries over to tonight's game.

    A technical foul would be a good solution, and I think that the suspension would be just fine as well.
    If players don't want that deciding a series, then they're free to stop flopping.
