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?

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.

This is worse than the money grab the NFL pulled with the fines for hard hits.

Get a clue.
ooh NBA is on a huge rise right now. There is some good basketball being played now days and there hasnt been more good to great players at one time in the NBA in since well ever.

In all honesty they should just call a foul on the flopper and that would change everything. NO need to fine players, just call a foul for obvious flopping.

wow, you're an idiot.

lemme guess, on game day you scream 'let them play,let them play' and then the rest of the week you support the players lawsuits against the league for injuries and head trauma?
