NBA Adopts Anti-Flopping Policy

The NBA officially adopted an anti-flopping policy Wednesday, announcing a new rule that will fine repeat offenders this season.

Any player who flops during a regular-season game will be subject to a series of penalties, beginning with a warning for first-time violators. After the warning, players will be fined in increments of $5,000 for each additional flop over the course of the season. The fines increase to $30,000 for a fifth offense.

SN: Will Fines Fix Flopping?
The NBA announced an escalating scale of fines for players caught flopping this season. Will that deter floppers?
Cast Your Vote!

The NBA stated it would consider suspending any player who violates the anti-flopping rule more than five times in the regular season. The league said it will announce at a later date a separate set of penalties for flopping during the postseason.

"Flops have no place in our game," Stu Jackson, the NBA's executive vice president of basketball operations, said in a written statement. "They either fool referees into calling undeserved fouls or fool fans into thinking the referees missed a foul call.

"Accordingly, both the Board of Governors and the Competition Committee felt strongly that any player who the league determines, following video review, to have committed a flop should -- after a warning -- be given an automatic penalty."

The league defined flopping as "any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player" in an official release.

There's no reason to fine them for flopping.

Just don't call the damn foul.

This is bullshit. Flop is one of the cooler posters here. Why would they ban him from NBA games?

Wouldn't it be easier just to ban the whole NBA?

If you don't like it you can leave. You don't have to watch it and give them all your money. But don't come crawling back once the NBA becomes popular again.

Get a clue.

Flopping is worse in college. That's where that shit ****ing starts. The egregious flops you see in the NBA are just the result of a long practiced career where that shit is encouraged.
