Faking an act? As long as the act is initiated authentically, how can you say it's not natural? Everyone has different strength, and the momentum and forces of the game will have their own effect.

Unless they only fine those extreme ones : video proof that there was 100% no contact and the player faked it all by himself.

Otherwise, it's all too subjective and arguable.
Flopping to me is going to be over-eggerating a call really bad or making it look like their's contact when they'res not. Baron Davis, LeBron James, Chris Paul have all done it. I'm fine with someone taking a charge and selling it a little bit because they took the charge legit, but falling to the floor when a elbow swings in front of you when it doesn't even contact is low. That's the type of flopping I want out of here. I think the type of flopping where there's a little contact and a guy acts like he just got hit by a Mack truck will be a little harder to deal with. That's the type of stuff Varejao does.
