View Full Version : CP3, You've been warned! NBA to Fine Players for Flopping During Playoffs



Lakers + Giants
04-18-2013, 08:05 PM
NEW YORK The NBA will fine players $5,000 for a first flopping offense during the playoffs.
The league issued players a warning for a first offense during the regular season, the first time it punished players for trying to fool referees into making calls by exaggerating contact.
The league says Thursday that there were 24 violations during the regular season, with five players getting a $5,000 fine for violating the anti-flopping rule twice.
A second offense in the postseason will bring a $10,000 fine, which increases to $15,000 for a third and $30,000 for a fourth. A player could be suspended if he is ruled to have flopped five or more times.
The NBA defines flopping as "any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player."

CP3 is still going to flop and get away with it. We all know this.

I don't get why pointing the direction of your possession when ball is out of bound considered flopping. Aren't you trying fool the ref? Not like your telling the truth or refs are going to listen to you and it's also very annoying imo.

This will only work if they publicly issue them the day after the games and call out the players. That amount of money is nothing to these guys, at least give them negative press ASAP.

Yes. According to CP3, he was doing it to mock Cousins, apparantly he was exaggerating all game.

Reread my post. I never said they never flopped, can you name a single team that has NEVER flopped, not even once?

I said Flop beyond belief. Last year the Clips would flop quite abit, its how they got the rep, this year its been cutdown immensely, to the point where I doubt they are even leading the league in flops.

You know the Clippers have cut it down when the best and only vid you can provide is the one where CP3 is mocking another player for his incessant exaggerations.

90's style physical basketball>todays soft flip flop basketball

imo

If we foul and play physical, call the foul. Don't call bs theatrics

If you prefer todays style to the 90's, I feel sorry for you

Physicality doesnt equate to toughness so whats your point here?
I dont really prefer any era more than the other, stylistic differences dont really concern me much.

And I wish they would call the fouls, but I wouldn't be surprised if Z-Bo punched the guy whos owned him over the years with no call being made.

Love that the tread is named after CP3! Keep bringing those completely baseless living in the past opinions! HATERS!! The Clippers flopping is about as overstated as the Lakers chances of winning the title were after the Howard trade. Now their whining...that's another story.

This is a joke. If CP3 flops then what does The Bron do?

And if they are going to enforce this are they going to call a travel when The Bron walks the entire distance of the court and states that it's a "crab dribble."
