    I wish the league would look into this in the offseason. I'd like to see fines and suspensions for flops. Flopping is cheating!

    It's sort of hard to blame the players sometimes, it works so damn well. But something definitely needs to be done, I'm sick of it.

    There needs to be challenges on fouls or something. This is getting ridiculous. I don't mind the Rockets losing on just a few lucky quarter-ending 3's or flip shots, but to lose on a flop is absurd.

    Battier sells charges. Cryalinko flops six feet into the air when boxed out by Scola.

    I know you're kidding, but not everyone understands.

    Battier flops, but he's in position first.

    Fake flops...they just "pretend" they get hit. Iverson does it all the time. He whiplashes his head back everytime he drives. That ship doesn't belong in the game. It taints the game. It's cheating.

    Selling a charge call...when there is hard contact...like Battier does is one thing, but to flat out lie/cheat about being hit is another. The only way to put an end to plays like AK's is suspensions.

    At least Adelman's commenting on the situation in the postgame interviews. He's not saying anything to get a fine, but he's definitely letting the NBA office know what he thinks of the morons with the whistles.

    I hope you're not likening him to the Fishers & Ginobilis of the world who flail their arms about wildly as they go down when there's the slightest breeze. When Battier falls, it's legitimate. How many times have you seen Fisher or Ginobili run to the locker room with their heads cut open? Battier intentionally tries to draw the charge, but that's not flopping. That's smart defense.

    International sports dont have the same values as american sports. These guys are taking over teh league with their flopping, its pathetic.
