The NBA has released details about their new flopping rules.
Warning on first offense, then fines of then fines of $5K, $10K, $15K and $30K for offenses 2-5. A player who violates the flopping rule six or more times in the regular season will be subject to an increased fine and/or suspension. Separate guidelines for penalizing floppers during the playoffs will be released "at a later date," the league says.

A flop is sometimes necessary though(as stupid as that sounds). I read a pretty good article about it, can't really go looking for it as I don't care that much, but it basically says that if a player doesn't fall then the refs won't make the call.
We all know a PG can't seriously take down a huge center, but the contact is still there so the call should still be made. The call usually isn't made though as they just run into them and bump them a little bit and that doesn't warrant a foul in the refs eyes even though it should.
CP3's flops are just purely retarded though.

It's not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love."
