Default Tyson Chandler responds to new flopping fines

http://www.nj.com/knicks/index.ssf/2..._agrees_w.html

Quote:
The NBA will start fining players for flopping, and that made Knicks' center Tyson Chandler a very happy man.

Chandler, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, doesn't have anything to worry about on his end as he's a known defensive terror and legitimate tough guy, but he's thrilled the league is at least trying to curtail a time-honored tradition of duping the refs into calling fouls.

Entering his 12th season, Chandler said he's seen a plethora of floppers, and added there could be a lot of guys in today's game who'll get fined.
I love that. Theres going to be a lot of guys wholl be in trouble in this league," said Chandler, then joking even some on his own team will be fined. "I dont want to name names but mostly the guards and Europeans, so well have to talk to [Argentinian import] Pablo [Prigioni] about that."

Commissioner David Stern has long tried to clean up the act of flopping, which over the past 15-20 years has taken on the shape of international soccer, where a player acts like he was just clipped by a sniper after the slightest of touch.

As recently as this summer, Stern began kicking around the idea of penalizing those who try to "trick the referees" into calls. The new rule allows the league to penalize players who get away with flops after the fact. And as he told the Associated Press, by way of SLAM Online, Stern said the league office already retroactively goes back and either upgrades or downgrades flagrant fouls after review, so the flopping fines would go along those lines.

Stern joked that the league's letter to the offending player would read something like: "Greetings from the league office. You have been assigned flopper status." He then clarified by adding, "No, Im joking, but something like that. That sort of lets people know that its not enough to say `its all part of the game. We just want to put a stake in the ground that says this is not something that we want to be part of our game -- without coming down with a sledgehammer -- but just doing it in a minimalist way to begin stamping it out"

However the letterhead reads, fans and NBA personnel alike are no doubt rejoicing over this new rule. Noted floppers like Blake Griffin, LeBron James, Shane Battier, and Derek Fisher...probably not so much.

Leflop is scurred, his FT a game gonna go down by 5 a game if they actually do call his flops.

D-Wade, whose entire game is built around flops, will likely lose his starting spot to Ray Allen.

Let me know when one of the elite superstars actually gets penalized for this. Just another tool for the refs to use to choreograph games.

Chris Paul, James Harden, Luis Scola, Anderson Varejao...all big time floppers.

Its self-explanatory. They'll call it on some players but not on others. Like they do now with every other alleged infraction.

This whole "LeBron flops more than any other player" shit is so retarded. LeBron is really bad at selling flops and people focus on him so he's mad a few really bad flops that get magnified to the nth degree. SMH and fully expect some dumbass to post LBJ flopping gifs

Refs don't enforce the new flopping rules. League office does post game

Maybe you should re-read the statement the NBA released, because the officials will have no say in it.

LeBron does flop a lot, but it's not like his game relies on flopping. He won't be nearly as affected as someone like Ginobili.

I'm most interested to see how Chris Paul and Harden change how they defend, initiate contact. Especially Harden, only because so much of what he does is predicated on the whims of offensive flopping.
