NBA establishes new anti-flopping penalties, could fine players


    The NBA will penalize floppers this season, fining players for repeated violations of an act a league official said has "no place in our game."

    Those exaggerated falls to the floor might fool the referees and fans during the game, but officials at league headquarters plan to take a look for themselves afterward.

    Players will get a warning the first time, then be fined $5,000 for a second violation. The fines increase to $10,000 for a third offense, $15,000 for a fourth and $30,000 for the fifth. Six or more could lead to a suspension.

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


But how will the Miami Heat hope to repeat without getting their 4+ charge calls a game?

It's simple. The flopping calls don't get penalized during the game, but are discouraged by post-game fines and suspensions.

And the Big Three make enough money that they can afford $15K here, $30K there.

Not that the Miami Heat are by any means the only team to do this.
