    NBA to fine for flopping

    Hopefully they have better luck enforcing it than the NHL has:

    Re: NBA to fine for flopping

    When will they start fining referees for not calling traveling?

    Give me a break. It's the official's job to determine it, and if it is its a no-call.

    Re: NBA to fine for flopping

    This is another reason I do not like the NBA. I do watch the playoffs because they are usually pretty good basketball. But this stuff is silly. Let them play, let the officials earn their money.

    Ah, the more I see of the NBA the more I believe the league is quite mismanaged.

    In other news, Adam Haluska is to hold a presser later today, declaring his boycott of the NBA and formation of the FBA - Flopping Basketball Association.

    The funny things is people believe David Stern is a great Comish, but overlook things like this. I'm not sure I agree.

    Looks like Manu and Kirlenko are out of a job if they can't flop anymore.

    Re: NBA to fine for flopping

    Wow, I didnt' expect the negative reactions. I think it's great, nothing ruins a game like somebody flopping around on the floor like a fish out of water. Yes, the officials should handle it on the floor but if they can't or wont then this is the next best thing.

    I don't disagree flopping needs dealt with - but deal with the officials - not put some crazy fine in place for it. What next...fines for fouls?

    I think they can fine for intentional fouls. Since flopping is intentional by definition, I don't think this is too far out there. Of course injury typically doesn't occur from flopping.

    Re: NBA to fine for flopping

    There's much more flopping in basketball, its just not as dramatic, where in soccer they act like they got mauled by a bear.
