JJ Barea warned by NBA not to flop
Believe it or not, but he was among the first two NBA players to receive a warning under the league's new flopping fine policy.
He got a warning for flailing his arms but not falling Friday night on a play when Sacramento's Jimmer Fredette gave him a stiff arm and got called for the offensive foul for driving into him.
The NBA considered that some over-acting by Barea.
Barea expressed surprise -- almost bordering on pride -- that he received a warning, even though he claimed the league hadn't yet told him.
