I'm glad Stu Jackson went on The Herd and set Colin straight.

Pau Gasol is GONE

The whole time Colin was saying that he was not gonna let Stu get by easy on the flopping issue but Stu just hung in there and crushed all Colin's points.

Flopping should be treated as a technical foul and ride along with technicals. If a ref calls you for flopping, it's a tech. if you get two techs of any kind in a game, you're done. 12 techs a year and its a game suspension. Yes, I know flopping can be subjective, but techs are already, it's no big deal to add this to the list of technical offenses. That's what should've been done, but yet again the NBA has completely missed the point.

These petty (in NBA players' terms) fines they've come up with won't do jack to stop this plague.

I agree because soccer also has a similar system but with red/yellow cards. But from the NBA's standpoint, it's a good way for them to make some money.

Players pay money when they get a tech already.

The rule was right there built-in, yet the NBA was too scared to actually enforce it properly. This is a joke.

So, how's it been for you guys so far? Observations? Thoughts?

I personally have watched quite a few games outside of our Lakers and can happily say, it seems as though the players are very well aware of this as there's been a conscious effort not to do this as much anymore.

I can't remember the last time I've seen this few amount of flopping, if almost at all, although Chris Paul was definitely guilty in my eyes on at least one play yesterday (Dwight's first foul called on him). That was just ridiculous. Guess he's not even gonna' get a warning or fine for that though.

Clippers should have been gotten at least 2 fines that game for flopping. CP3 defiantly.

Guards J.J. Barea of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Donald Sloan of the Cleveland Cavaliers are the first players who have been identified as floppers under the NBA's new anti-flopping rule.

Both offending plays occurred in the fourth quarters of games last Friday.

Barea was playing defense with 10:04 left in a game the Timberwolves would win, and took an off-hand to the face from the Kings' Jimmer Fredette. Barea threw his arms up dramatically, and to great effect; he fooled the referee into a call he would not have been likely to get otherwise.

Punishing players for attempting to fool referees was the major rationale of the new program. Newly instituted for the 2012-2013 season, the rule calls for video review of every NBA game.

"I've said it before, I think it's something that they can certainly look at, but I don't know how anybody thousands of miles away on TV can tell if somebody gets hit or not hit," said Wolves coach Rick Adelman. " I think anybody here, if somebody does that to you, you're gonna flinch ... and he got hit.

"The play that they're talking about, the guy hit him in the face and he got called for a foul. I don't understand how he could get a warning foul. It sounds like maybe they're trying to use his reputation, but I just think it seems like our officials are supposed to be the best in the world, and they're very good officials, and they should be able to tell if somebody gets hit or he's faking it."

In a game the Cavaliers were losing badly, Sloan got caught up trying to defend in the open court, tangled legs with Bulls big man Nazr Mohammed, and whirled to the floor in, arms up, in dramatic fashion.

Players found to have egregiously attempted to fool the referee are punished. A first offense calls for a warning. The second offense comes with a $5,000 fine, followed by $10,000 for a third, $15,000 for a fourth and $30,000 for a fifth. Additional flops after that could lead to a suspension.

The fines are so steep that the National Basketball Players Association lawyers have lodged legal complaints.








One of the comments from the ESPN board

Remember when Berea had that big flop when he pretended Bynum tossed him to the ground

They review every game? Really? I find that hard to believe cause I've already seen several other legitimate flops in my eyes that have gone without any consequence, specifically Chris Paul.

I doubt the NBA will call out Chris Paul publicly for flopping. He's given the Clippers a good name, they don't want to humiliate a star like that.

I like this rule. It ruins the game, even if a Laker does it.
