Great. More rules/laws to abide by. Now we'll start obsessing over what is/is not a flop. Right? A whole new set of distractions........

NBA is gonna turn into NFL. Football is becoming unwatcheable with all the rules/penalties/replays they have to do.

So even if the flopper doesnt get the call his way he can still be reviewed and given a fine? This is awesome. Only 5 flops allowed until suspension? Some teams are in trouble. Some specific players can tally up 5 flops on opening day.

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.

He gets flagrant fouled because players don't like flopping cry baby bitches that only stand up to point guards, I remember when Andre miller pushed his ass cause he kept trying to punk point guards and griffin was scared as fk, fake tough guy

Not to mention he's gotten into it with Grant Hill, Zach Randolph few times (you should know). Dude is far from a PG bully so stop trying so hard. Andre Miller cheapshoted him from behind so the idea that he "punked" him is so stupid it's laughable. If a 210 pound person charges you fullcourt and tackles you in the lower back you're going to go down too if you're not expecting it.

Miller is VERY lucky that Griffin didn't dish a flagrant back like he did with bigger Trevor Ariza, or Miller's career would be over.

agreed. that definition is WAY too broad. If that was all they can do then just do nothing and make the right calls. Im against this, but at least it is only fines and won't effect the games.

Huh? Blake pushed him out of the paint on a rebound once and that's what Miller got pissed about. Nothing classless or dirty like Miller's tackle from behind. You really need to rewatch the video (try not to jack off like you're already doing about it).

Stop trolling. Anyways back to topic as Sic said.... it's likely going to be interpreted differently and abused by refs. League favorites will continue to get away with it while everybody else gets fines.

Any player who is determined to have committed a flop during the regular season will be subject to the following:

Violation 1: Warning
Violation 2: $5,000 fine
Violation 3: $10,000 fine
Violation 4: $15,000 fine
Violation 5: $30,000 fine

If a player violates the anti-flopping rule six times or more, he will be subject to discipline that is reasonable under the circumstances, including an increased fine and/or suspension.

The league will announce at a later date a separate set of penalties for flopping that will apply during the playoffs.

Finally.

Default Re: NBA will penalize flopping from now on, confirmed today

I have a feeling that even if this new rule is strictly enforced that it will not be to the satisfaction of many fans, primarily due to the fact that fans and players (and presumably by extention, officials) perceive different people as the primary culprits. I keep reading on ISH how Griffin, CP3, Wade, and Lebron are the worst floppers, but last year when 152 NBA players were asked who the biggest floppers in the game were neither of those four players were even listed in the top 15.

So be prepared to see major fines imposed on non superstars the likes of Varejao, Scola, Battier, and Barea as opposed to superstars such as Griffin and Lebron. I expect to see numerous threads next season complaining about how the Clippers and Heat are not getting penalized for flopping.
