Good to see them finally address flopping, among other things.


Flopping: This may be the biggest issue with fans, but is not slated for a vote Thursday.

NBA commissioner David Stern discussed the league's ideas on flopping after a June competition committee meeting in Miami: "One of the things were looking at is a postgame analysis of flopping," he explained. "We could see something like (the current points system for technicals) ... If you continue to do this you have to suffer some consequences. What exactly that should be, and the progression is, is to be decided. We just want to put a stake in the ground and say this is not something we want to be a part of our game -- without coming down with a sledgehammer but to do it in a minimalist way to begin stamping it out."

Under the current points system for technicals, fines and suspensions mount as the offenses continue.

Title is very misleading. They are voting on 3 other issues BESIDES floppoing. That will come in the future. THey have to think of tangible criteria/consequencesto even vote on first. Can't just be "Flopping: Yes or No?"

For those that didn't read the article. THey are voting on:

1. Replays for ALL flagrant fouls
2. Replays for Goaltending/Charges in the last 2 minutes/overtime
3. Inbounding from the sideline/baseline after timeouts.

in the FUTURE they will discuss:
1. FIBA type rules for goaltending (basically can grab it off the rim)
2. Flopping

I'd love to see them address flopping in a serious way. It won't happen. It's been going on since the late 70s, and been rampant since the late 80s. Nothing will change.

The thread had only been open for 15 minutes, If you want to be a troll, and call out the Heat fanbase, at least try to be smart about it. Better yet, discuss the topic and contribute instead of incite people just looking to read a new thread. NBA players flop, and it is a problem to hopefully be addressed in the coming years. It is not relegated to one certain team, or player. It is a widespread issue that players have taken advantage of. I hate flopping as much as the next basketball fan, trust me, but to call out only the Heat or one certain player is just trolling.

Point system will just legitimatized flopping because now you can manage it much like you manage your fouls.

Important game? well, time to use up some flopping points if it can lead to a win.

There will be no direct penalty during the game; any consequence will be after the game, and might not come until after certain points are accumulated.

Flopping? well, it's legally part of the game now.
