The NBA announces flopping policy for the playoffs. No warnings; $5K for first offense; $10K for second; $15K for third; $30K for fourth

Good to hear, but will they actually review the plays and fine the players when necessary?

^ Exactly. Based on how horrible a job they did in the regular season, especially after the first few months, I'm not all that confident. Good thing however is that everything should be under a microscope even more you would think since in the playoffs each game is pretty much that much more of magnitude & of focus. We'll see though.

Well not exactly. It's sorta a mixed bag because of what bigfetz above said. What good is a policy if it's not enforced? Based on how they did for the regular season, they don't have much credibility right now on this sadly.

They won't call out a guy like Chris Paul or Blake Griffin for this. It would ruin their image that ESPN tried so hard to make big.

Reggie Evans though, that will be enforced.

^ Nor James Harden, nor LeBron, nor any star or superstar for that matter. Special treatment to the max once again.

Had out "suspensions" over fines and I guarantee the flops will stop.

In the playoffs especially.

Ha! What's 5-15K to a dude who makes millions? This does nothing to deter flopping. 

 

Suspensions on the other hand....

There ya' go, JR Smith fined 5K for flopping in game 2:

This was the play:

 

 

Still, I've seen plenty others throughout these playoffs that have gone unpunished. Not satisfied.

That's what a fineable flop is?

The heat should have about a dozen flop fines vs them per game...

Most NBA players learned how to flop from Ric Flair. Take a look if you're not convinced:
