I was rooting for him. It sucks. Looking back at it, I'm so happy the Celtics didn't trade up for him.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

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.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I'm going to love how they judge what is and isn't a flop.

I think Griffin did maybe flop a little bit on the Smith hit but yeah I'd agree the Griffin one you posted shouldn't receive a flopping penalty.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

So how long until all of the Clippers' starters are suspended? I'm going three weeks.

Bears - Bulls - Braves - Blackhawks - Bulldogs - America

The NBPA will file a grievance and unfair labor practice charge against the NBA over the new rules in regards to flopping.

"The NBA is not permitted to unilaterally impose new economic discipline without first bargaining with the union," said Billy Hunter.

Hunter described the new fines as an "overreaction and overreach by the commissioner's office."
Looks like the players don't want to be fined for flopping and are trying to get the policy overturned. INB4LOCKOUT.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

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.
