No More Flopping!

Or at least if you flop you will get fined and maybe suspended if you do it enough. ESPN reported today that the NBA informed teams that starting next year they will be assessing fines to floppers. Call in the Manu rule.

In his ever so eloquent way, Mr. Rasheed Wallaced offered this quote in regards to players who flop:

"All that bull[expletive]-ass calls they had out there. With Mike [Callahan] and Kenny [Mauer] -- you've all seen that [expletive]," Wallace said. "You saw them calls. The cats are flopping all over the floor and they're calling that [expletive]. That [expletive] ain't basketball out there. It's all [expletive] entertainment. You all should know that [expletive]. It's all [expletive] entertainment."

If you want to watch flopping (in my opinion) you can dial in a Soccer match or some WWE wrestling.

Also from ESPN talking about the competition committee:

The committee had extensive discussions about expanding the use of instant replay for next season and voted to recommend a proposal which calls for the use of replay to assist referees in determining whether a basket or a shot on which a player is fouled is taken from behind the 3-point line.

The committee, as expected, is also backing the league's wish to use instant replay to resolve discrepancies on clock malfunctions, after a major clock issue during the Detroit-Orlando series in the second round.
