    A number of players express support for anti-flopping penalties, then union announces it will file a grievance over them.

    Kobe likes the new rule. "Shameless flopping, that's a chump move," he says. Says Vlade "kind of pioneered it." #stoptheflop
    about 2 hours ago

    My respect for Kobe went up just a tad bit. Not a whole lot, but just a little. You know its Wade and Lebron leading this union outcry.
    And Chris Paul. Isn't he on the board? I'm sure he's received some input from his teammates in Flop City as well.

    hopefully it's actually enforced. This was a must cause flopping is getting out of hands. We see every flop now thankfully to replays. Players are making flopping a skill which is not real basketball. Even 2k13 put flopping into their game. wtf?

    apparently this is the video that defines what will be fined/not fined.

    Definitely helps to clear it up. Basically, if it looks like it's a natural basketball-related flop, or fall, without all the cheap theatrics, it'll still be safe. Hopefully when they review the tape, they will take into consideration how much contact was actually made, and not just how a player flails his arms or head.

    If that's the official video, I definitely like the selection of flops. Parker, Wade, other big names used as examples of a fine-worthy flop. And the last example of a non-fine flop shows Paul George getting away with a savvy veteran "nudge" in the back.

    This will still be a challenge. When a 260-lb PF or C bumps into a 215-lb wing player, the forty-five pound difference is going to make it tough to determine if this is simply the physical consequence of mass and speed hitting a smaller mass (which may or may not have speed) or extra acting. Hopefully this process won't be subject to someone like Mike Breen - who's really bad at this as an announcer - declaring every time a bigger guy hits a smaller guy that the smaller guy is flopping.

    If all announcers start getting this wrong the way Breen does, then I propose that we as fans get to watch a video tape of Breen taking small bumps from James, Shaq, and even medium-sized NBA players like Anthony and let's see if he goes flying (he will) and let's see if the small guys are always being accused of flopping going forward?

    Obviously, the biggest thing this will help is when there is no contact and Manu (I love him anyway, get over it!) keels over like its a gunshot wound. And by no contact, I mean Ike Taylor how-the-heck-did-you-call-that-pass-interference? vs. Santonio Holmes types of no contact. Not a judgment call of "did he actually hit him that hard"?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Flopping is hard to define, like porn? I know it when I see it?

    I love that we still seem to be under the skin of the Miami area media:

    The league should let Jeff Van Gundy be in charge of reviewing the flops....
