After last nights flop on artest. Hes a product of last years flopping clippers. He earned this fine, 5,000 dollars.

For such a massive dude with a big beard, it's hard to pull off the flop. Leave it to the smaller cp3's of the world.

How does discouraging flopping make the NBA soft? If anything it should have the opposite effect.

Then I realized he's probably 265 and I'm 5'10, so yeah, I'm okay with a fine.

I didn't realize that Reggie Evans was a flopper... I always had an image of him being a tough guy. He was not even in my top ten for biggest floppers in the league...


That said, while I agree that eliminating flopping is good for the game, I am kind of starting to miss it. I guess I really liked complaining about it, and some of the flops were just hilarious. I doubt players will be doing those outlandish flops that made me laugh so hard. :-(

its weird because he is really tough and hes a huge flopper lol... he mainly does it to get under players skin I believe

Evans actually flops a lot. Just like jmoney said, it's part of what gets under peoples skin about him. He is very physical when battling for rebounding position, but he flops around like crazy when he plays defense.

I'm glad he is fined. The only problem I have with this rule is that it isn't enforced enough. There are many flops that should have been called. It's a good start in the right direction though.

“People have been flopping for years ... so, for me to flop, I had to look at someone before me. You take a player like Dennis Rodman, he used to flop a lot. [But] if they want to take it out of the game, whatever. That’s cool.”

However, Evans disagrees with the idea that flopping has become a problem.

“It’s all a part of the game,” he said. “It’s no different than taking charges and stuff like that. Some teams do drills to take charges and stuff. ... If they feel like it’s bad and they want to take it out of the game, it is what it is.

“So if somebody wants to knock [into guys], and somebody wants to throw [elbows] at you, you’ve just got to take that hit, and hopefully get a call.”

Clippers just happen to be the team with the most floppers; griffin, cp3, Evans (last year), and a few others.

I wouldn't say I'm "mad", as much as rather "satisfied" that justice is finally being served.

The "you mad"? retort has been overused as a common copout for insecure people with nothing of value to say, please delete it from your vocabulary going forward if you want to be taken seriously.

Knowing Reggie, a slap from a dude your size would send him backwards through a brick wall.

I'm actually a big fan of Evans, and he's made a career for himself being a rebounder first, pest second. He'll have to rebound extra hard with the new flopping rule in effect.

In my opinion the Ref should share the burden of the fine.. Players can flop but the ref still has to blow the whistle on that nonsense.. In this case the play happened about 3 feet away from the ref who blew the whistle.. If the subsequent question is *how is the ref supposed to be able to tell it's a flop..??* Then I think the only reasonable answer is don't blow the whistle if you aren't sure it's a legitimate foul.. That whole situation, like so many flop situations is just utter garbage that is slowing down games..

Are you serious? Watch the Evans flop in real time and you will see that it looks like a foul. We get the benefit of many replays to determine that he flopped, The ref may have even been looking at something different on the court and saw this out of his peripheral vision and as the arms went he thought crap have to get a whistle on this to stop the game getting out of hand.
In no way should the referee be held accountable for making a decision like that!! Referees are held accountable by the referee coach(s) on the game and the referee commissioner. I can guarantee the ones from the Raps Bobcats game who missed the foul on Bargs at the end would have had their ****s kicked by the referee coach on the game and had to explain how they missed the foul.
Most of the time a foul is called because it looks like a foul. The game is so quick that if it looks like a foul it probably is. I'm not saying it always is but 99% of the time it is.
