Spokesman Tim Frank said Thursday the league is finalizing procedures to deal with flopping, the art of falling down when little or no contact was made in an effort to trick referees into calling a foul.
If you continue to do this, you may you have to suffer some consequences. What those exactly should be and what the progression is, is to be decided, because ... we just want to put a stake in the ground that says this is not something that we want to be part of our game. - David Stern
Personally, I think that taking flopping away is a good thing. This whole thing is getting out of hand. I grew up watching the NBA in the mid 80's and really feel that these rules whimpified the NBA. I know that Fisher did a lot of good with his flopping and believe me, when I tell you from personal experience, when you are 5 feet nothing 100 and nothing, you have to use anything that you can to your advantage. But what about when players like Blake Griffin and Chris Bosh flop? They have no reason to flop. If your position on the court has the word Power in it you have no business flopping. At the same time you have players like Rudy Fernandez and Manu who act as if they've been shot by a sniper. They are bringing that over-acting that Euro soccer players use.
Cut that bullshit out!
PSST! And people have the nerve to call us fakers!
