"YELLOW CARD: Around the league there has been quiet discussion, and there will be more, about penalizing players for flopping, perhaps with a technical foul or loss of possession. (Nothing would turn Shaq into a fan of the league office quicker than that.) Sources say that the NBA office is upset not only with defenders taking a dive in an effort to draw an offensive foul, but also with shooters pretending they've been maimed in an effort to get a whistle. Soccer adopted this rule several years ago, and it has been fairly successful in limiting Academy Award performances."
Reggie has been maimed a few times.
