Default why are the ppl in charge of the NBA so stupid?

30K maximum fine for flopping when these guys earn upwards of 50 million dollars! To put this in perspective for the common man, this is like fining me 30 dollars when I earn 500 per day.

Lets put it this way.. you have 50K in the bank.. Make 4K a month..

And you get a 400 dollar traffic ticket..



Who gives a **** how much you make or have in the bank.. that 400 motherf*cking dollars you gotta pay, that you dont want to pay... and you dont give a shit how much you got cause thats money you had, that now you wont.



If fines were 200K per or something the Clippers, Lebron, and Ginobli would be on the street and the players would eventually riot..


Oh wait.. The NBA never imposes this shit.. let alone apply it to their stars..

If the fine were $200k, there would be no more flops. Ever.

Because the NBPA would have a cow if the fines were greater. As they are now they are in line with other penalties the League Offfices levy against players

It'a a flopping fine, it shouldn't cost you more to flop than commit a flagrant foul or bark at the refs

Players will get embarrassed and be less inclined to flop again. Public recognition of a flop will be worse than the fees.

fines should be proportionate to a player's salary. That way players on minimum salaries wouldn't get get ****ed in the ass.

They don't even need fines. Just make it 1 game suspension for the first flop. 10 games for the second flop. 20 games for the third flop.

Players will stop flopping.

The NBA makes all fines suspensions and punishments public. You just have to know where to look

for blake griffin that's a lot

82 games x 2+ flopping incidents per game = 164+ for the season not including playoffs, pre season or practice.

that's about 5 million bucks.

Happened faster than I thought it would and before anyone got fined. As of this afternoon the
NBPA is already threatening to file a grievance with the League and the Labor Board for unfair practices since the fines were not bargained with the NBPA.

Hunters losing his grip, I read the League wanted to fine players 50k but after discussion with the NBPA they agreed on 30k. So now Hunter's saying there was never any bargaining. Hunter trying to make the players forget he's under investigation by the Justice Department and the NBPA itself
