    I am so glad the NBA finally did this. Flopping was becoming too much apart of the game.

    LOL this is terrible tbh.

    The NBA is becoming more of a joke because of **** like this.

    These rules are in place to make sure only superstars can flop.

    Are they warning Chris Paul? LeBron James? Etc? Don't tell me those guys are not flopping.

    No. They are warning Donald Sloan, Patrick Patterson, Reggie Evans, Kevin Martin (the best player who can't get away with it probably).

    Pretty sad.

    Should have either stood his ground for the contact or play legit defense and he would have had a rebound too.

    Jeez for some reason the nba.com videos aren't loading for me. It's so annoying cause the standard highlight videos do. Weird.

    i'm not sure if he was trying to get a charging call or he genuinely wanted to avoid any contact b/c he's just soft like that

    Flop, indeed.

    Did Manu get a flopping warning already?

    Curious, but has any star player gotten warnings? It seems every time I hear about it, it's some no-name guy. And I know star players "act" better than anybody else.

    surprised that the notorious floppers(ginobli, scola, Lebron havent done so yet??)

    bottom line...this has been awesome for bball...props to the league for not making this soccer 2.0

    Yeah that was what I was thinking. Looked like he may have been trying to aviod contact because he was not sure if he was in the restricted zone or not. Either way I'm glad the NBA is taking a stand on this. I have not seen as much flopping this season.
