I think the NBA will end up tweaking the policy to hand out technicals because while the fine will curtail some flopping it does seem like a money grab at the same time. Doing it in game is next to impossible unless the refs can be allowed to go back and review the video which would make games unbelievably boring to watch unless maybe they did it at half time or between quarters.
