James Harden Fined $5000 for Flop on Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

The NBA slapped James Harden with a $5K fine for violating the League’s anti-flopping rules for a second time this season (the latest violation took place on Saturday against Blake Griffin and the LA Clippers.)

    Holy sh*t, you suck James.

    So hard for me to respect idiots that do stuff like this…

    did you see the way he abandoned lin toward the end of the laker game? harden has some serious effort/commitment issues

  • LakeShow

    Yeah, I did.
    He’s always had an attitude and stuff, but it’s affecting his level of play. He needs to refocus.

    This guy will never follow Kobe-DWade.. I so hope Kobe can come back and play at a high level for 1-2 more years, and prove he’s still the class of SG. A league with James Harden and Dwight howard as the faces of their respective positions is a league that doesn’t seem very appealing to me..

    a taste of his own medicine

    Wonder why Blake Griffin didn’t get fined for the several flops he had in the same game.

  • LakeShow

    He doesn’t appear to have the mental make up. He is very emotional.

    I like his game, but the game is only half of what it takes to be an all-timer.

    Just to be clear, Andray Blatche was fined three times this much, because he made a very light version of the Sam Cassell big balls dance, on the bench. Three times. League policy on flops are ridiculous.

    Don’t send me these, i’m trying to hate LeBron less haha.

    Start suspending players allready, that would have an actual effect on the flopping thing.

    Lance Stephenson flopped so hard against the bulls. He should get an oscar and a fine.

  • AndyK415

    100% agree

  • LakeShow

    I don’t get it.

  • shockexchange

    This is a darn good fine. Whenever Harden drives to the basket he automatically screams and flails around, looking for a foul. In the Shock Exchange’s opinion, the referees should give him a technical foul every time he does it. It may not be considered “flopping,” but it’s definitely “unsportsmanlike conduct.”

  • Lucas

    Agreed. I find it a little ironic Harden was fined in a game played against Flop City…err. I mean Lob CIty.

    Indeed…. and call it “a gasol” violation.

    “Who drops on the deck and flops like a fish?” (Kids shouting) JAMES HARDEN!!!

  • Ugh

    I think he read the D-Wade fastbreak flowchart:
    1) Is there an opponent in the halfcourt with me?
    Yes: crash to the ground, throwing ball into basket.
    No: Slow down, then ask question again.

  • LakeShow

    Well done, good sir, well done!
