NBA  > General NBA  > Flopping

I read that David Stern was going to discuss taking a closer look at flopping. He wants the Refs to be able to review it before deciding on a foul. The question is, what to do if it is a flop versus a foul. I say, call delay of game, and if there are further delays it is a technical.

Its becoming an art form and its time that something is done about it.

I agree with what you said.

It is not to bad throughout the course of the game but certian players will be on notice for sure.

All four commentators/analyst during last nite's Thunder/Spurs game discussed the fact how the whole FLop Phenom is out of hand...

I agree, every NBA game we see flopping. It takes away from the game of basketball so much. Everyone forgets about fundamentals. If I flop off of this great screen that was set on me, I can get the call. Completely disgusting.

If you get called for flopping, I think the defender should get one free shot at your nads in retaliation. That would cut a lot of it out.
