NBA will penalize flopping from now on, confirmed today
 
The NBA will adopt an anti-flopping rule beginning with the 2012-13 season, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations Stu Jackson announced today.

“Flops have no place in our game – they either fool referees into calling undeserved fouls or fool fans into thinking the referees missed a foul call," Jackson said. "Accordingly, both the Board of Governors and the Competition Committee felt strongly that any player who the league determines, following video review, to have committed a flop should – after a warning – be given an automatic penalty.”

You can have 5000 pages of rules but it all boils down to how the refs implement them, I hope they show zero tolerance for a year at least.

Floppers will attempt anyway. They will just choose better situations to do.

Yea beyond that they need to stop showing favoritism. Whistle needs to be blown for every player that deserves it.

The reason scrub players really made flopping an epidemic in the NBA is because they won't get calls otherwise. If Rudy Fernandez gets mauled refs turn a blind eye without a massive flop. So as I said if they truly want to remove flopping, make the right calls.

Greeeeaaaaaat. So the refs have another tool at their disposal to implement their subjective/bisased officiating.

I don't believe the refs will implement the rules. It appears to be a post game review enforcement

I never understood why physically imposing players like Lebron and Blake Griffin feel the need to flop offensively. It's pathetic to watch. I'm happy they made an official statement about flopping but until I see players getting punished its all words to me.

:applause: . This is what I'm talking about. People keep seeing flopping as the big issue and taking their focus off biased and poor reffing. If players get the right calls I doubt they just flop for the hell of it (at least most players). A lot of players get away with a lot of shit.

People need to stop saying Griffin. Despite Griffin leading the NBA in points in the paint and taking more flagrants than anybody in the game Dwight Howard averaged about DOUBLE the free throw attempts per game. This is WITH Griffin's increased flopping which Howard doesn't do. Bottom line is refs don't like Griffin and they make him pay. Dwight yells AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYE!!!! every time up the court and gets rewarded for it.

Griffin didn't flop in his rookie year really and it's because he got more calls. He dropped 2 free throw attempts per game this year, probably because he annoys refs which is wrong. Enforce the game's rules for EVERYBODY.

No more MVP's for Lebron.

I think players will quickly adjust. The Euro's they may have the most problems, that flopping crap is so embedded in them.
