04:25 AM ET 11.06 | When it was announced late in the NBA offseason that this year the league would be cracking down on flopping, we all chuckled and said it would be a matter of days before the first warning was handed out. About five days is the exact number. The first (historic, as some are calling it) flopping warnings were handed out on Monday as the league notified Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea and Cavaliers guard Donald Sloan, telling them to knock it off. The two cases are very different, as Sloan was clearly guilty of his offense, while Barea could argue that his flop wasn't really a flop at all. Sloan's flop is exactly what the NBA is trying to crack down against. Even as he claims he was shoved by Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich, video evidence we have at FanSided harshly suggests otherwise.
