Default Can the NBA please start fining/suspending guys for flopping?

I know the refs can't doing anything about it during the game, but there's no reason why they can't have someone go over the game tape and fine someone for trying to trick the refs.

It has and it's not just this game. The knicks got outplayed but watching Lebron flail like a ballerina has really made me lose respect for him.

The refs should not be blamed for this shit.

the fact that the knicks only took 5 free-throws for the whole game is upsetting, and throw in the lebron flop-fest, it was hard to watch

They won't. Because they'd have to start fining/suspending players named LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

They've been fining guys for flopping for almost 3 years now.

Yep because preventing that flop would have made the knicks win

Yea. They have to start fining players. Something like 25k for a definite flop. That would reduce the amount of flops hugely. At this point, it's just a joke....between the soft ass defensive rules, no hard fouls, and blatant rewarding of flopping...its just a shame.

The state of the game is in a really bad place in some areas...which is stupid because the talent level in the NBA right now is through the roof.

The blatant flopping has to stop...and its such an easy fix. 25k fine everytime a player does it.
