05:43 PM ET 12.05 | Gerald Wallace has become the second player on his own team to be fined for flopping. The Brooklyn Nets small forward was docked $5,000 for a play that took place late in the third quarter of the Nets' loss to the Miami Heat Saturday. Wallace took a charge on LeBron James and went flying from the elbow to the baseline, a clear exaggeration of the contact. Wallace joins teammate Reggie Evans among those who have been fined with the new policy.

The next thing the NBA needs to crack down on is traveling...I can't believe how many times a game players (especially superstars) get away with taking 4 or even 5 steps. And yes, even Kevin Durant does it and it needs to stop. I used to play high school and college basketball and it drives me nuts watching all the missed traveling calls. Good morning Creepy.
