    Then, get to enforcing the traveling rules. To me, this would be the biggest and best change they could make. Eliminate 5 step drives down the lane and make these guys dribble. Never happen, I know, just dreaming a little.

    This is the missing ingredient.
    I mostly agree. It really just depends on how much they are willing to fine the players.

    But if they did this then Durant wouldn't be nearly as good.

    New flopping rule means nothing. The same star players will get the same star treatment. It just means that king floppers Dwayne and James will **** me off even more as flopping is called against the players that are guarding them, but not called on them for flops that are five times more flagrant.

    At least flopping is getting the attention it needs to have. It's rampant and I honestly can't stand it.

    Even if this doesn't do anything, I just hope it's just one step in the right direction with more steps to eventually come.

    Which is where opposing fans let em hear it.... Remember when seemingly the ENTIRE Fieldhouse chanted "He's a Flopper" at Wade late in game 3?

    Yeah, but I also had a 3rd row seat for Lebron's flop of the year when he bounced the dribble off his own face, then flailed backward and out of bounds with 2 feet of space between himself and the 2 defenders (West and Danny IIRC). So as much as the fans were letting them hear about it, they still pulled it off.

    Another nasty one was a called flop by Spol where they had Chalmers flop on a screen to get a TO, as overheard by the guy sitting next to me at game 6.

    Fan/peer pressure on the refs wasn't really having an impact.



    Also - F the Heat, just saying.

    Anybody else remember when Lebron climbed on David Wests back for a rebound, and they called the foul on West?

    Or when Lebron whined about the call, and the refs actually changed the call for them?

    The title says Foster, but I'm pretty sure its Deiner using his physical enforcer style of smashmouth intimidating basketball. I hope this makes a difference, its embarrassing watching Battier flop around.
    It was Foster who got Spalding imprinted on his forehead.

    Apparently, Oklahoma City is becoming a favored franchise. This should hurt both the Heat and the Lakers if it is enforced equally across the league. Unless, of course, the ownership of those franchises simply pay the fines for their players...
    I don't see how this hurts the Lakers much.. More like the Clippers.

    I was happy to learn that these can eventually lead to a suspension, at least in theory.

    I'll believe it when Lebron and Wade are paying a 30k fine each a week into the season.

    And if the league actually suspends them for flopping, I will **** rainbows and unicorns.

    This is going to be brutal to enforce. I'm pretty skeptical this policy will do much of anything to curtail it. It's already become too much a part of the game.

    The league cannot be lenient with this. They have it in place and it needs to be accessed fairly amongst those who do it.

    NBPA announces it will file grievance and unfair labor practices charge against #NBA over new flopping fines.



    Think we just got Lebron and Wade's response?

    As a member of a union myself, I have to agree with the NBPA for filing this grievance. No company with union employees should be able to pass rules that impose financial penalties without first bargaining with the union. I don't agree with flopping, and actually despise it, but the NBPA wouldn't be doing their jobs if they weren't looking out for the financial well-being of its members.

    I'm sorry but there are some things the Union should agree is in the best interest of the league. This is shortsighted and stupid on the unions part. Stern is trying to restore some semblance of order to the game. Hes trying to get the NBA on par with MLB and the NFL in popularity by copying their model of "Any team can win it"

    Building the brand that is the NBA is the best move for everybody. The players union should be embracing this. Instead they want to keep the trend of BS super star discounts that have helped contribute to a malaise in so many fanbases. Going into this season there are anywhere between 20-25 teams fanbases that absolutely know they aren't going to be able to win an NBA title. So of course the league is going to suffer.

    Where as you look at MLB or the NFL and you can usually see the possibility of half or more teams managing to squeak into the playoffs. And from there anything is possible. You don't think that helps those leagues turn profits?

    But no, the Players union should of course protect its over coddled superstar floppers with complete disregard to the 12th men and the financial viability of the league.

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

    Oh and if the NBA can't fine the players. Just have a flop count as a personal foul or a technical. Bet the guys will be a begging to pay a fine instead.

    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.
